Starting June 9, fully vaccinated students, faculty, staff and guests can enter indoor spaces on campus or property governed by MSU without a face mask, MSU President Samuel L. Stanley Jr. announced in an email sent Tuesday night.

Vaccinated individuals must wait at least two weeks after their final dose of a COVID-19 vaccine to not use a face mask. The rule does not apply to health care settings, and masks must be worn where patients may be present.

MSU will ask all individuals, including contractors and vendors, to self-verify their vaccination status before coming to campus each day using the university’s daily health screening form, in accordance with the state's orders. In addition, the university has the right to request further documentation of an individual’s vaccination status.

With limited exceptions, those who are not vaccinated or decline to answer the vaccination status question must continue wearing a face mask indoors and physically distance themselves from others.
