The University of Toledo is making several changes to its COVID-19 protocols, in line with new guidance from the Ohio Department of Health and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Effective Wednesday, June 2, fully vaccinated individuals will no longer be required to wear face coverings or practice physical distancing on the UToledo campus. This applies both indoors and outdoors.

Individuals are considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19 when two weeks have passed since they received their final dose.

Employees and students who are not fully vaccinated should continue to wear masks while on campus, except while alone in an enclosed space, eating or outside. Unvaccinated individuals should also maintain physical distancing.

Additionally, the University is discontinuing its event registry and removing restrictions on event size and, for fall, the 100-student cap and physical distancing requirements in face-to-face courses.

The University highly encourages all faculty, staff and students to get vaccinated. However, individuals may not ask others to disclose personal health information, including whether they’ve been vaccinated against COVID-19.

UToledo continues to offer convenient COVID-19 vaccination and testing on campus.

Faculty, staff and students age 18 and above can receive the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine without an appointment at the University Health Center on Main Campus or the Main Campus Pharmacy.

More information about the COVID-19 vaccines, clinic hours and how to schedule an appointment at one of the community vaccination sites is available on the University’s vaccine webpage.

The University continues to conduct weekly rapid COVID-19 testing of asymptomatic faculty, staff and students though its random surveillance program.

Appointments also are available by request for asymptomatic employees and students who are working or studying on campus.

Students and employees who are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 may call 419.383.4545 to schedule a test through The University of Toledo Medical Center. Testing is available on Health Science Campus and Main Campus.

The most recent updates to COVID-19 policies are available on the University’s coronavirus webpage.
