COVID-19 Update: Effective Wednesday, June 1, Masking Level Returns to Yellow
Dear Students, Families, Faculty and Staff:
Recently the Onondaga County Health Department has reported a notable decline in new COVID infections and hospitalizations across the Central New York region. This positive trend, combined with significantly reduced population density on our campus given summer break, supports an adjustment to our campus COVID Level and associated masking guidance.
Specifically, effective Wednesday, June 1, Syracuse University will return to COVID Level Yellow. As a reminder, under the Yellow Level, the following on-campus masking guidelines apply:
- For Unvaccinated Community Members: Masks are REQUIRED for all unvaccinated students, faculty, staff and visitors on campus indoors at all times, and outdoors when in the presence of others.
- For Vaccinated Community Members: Masks are RECOMMENDED for vaccinated students, faculty, staff and visitors while indoors in the presence of others, and outdoors in large group settings.
- For ALL Community Members: Currently, per the New York State Department of Health, all individuals are REQUIRED to wear masks on public transit (including Syracuse University shuttles) and when visiting any health care facility (including Barnes Center Health Care).
The University continues to closely monitor and assess public health conditions and all public health actions will be contingent on the most up-to-date data, science and public health guidance.
Thank you for your continued attention to the University’s public health protocols.
J. Michael Haynie
Vice Chancellor for Strategic Initiatives and Innovation
