Student health services would like to update the campus community regarding COVID-19 guidance. The pandemic is reaching a new stage as vaccination, testing availability, treatments and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continue to evolve. Being up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccination remains the best protection against serious disease and death.

· All staff, faculty and students are encouraged to follow CDC guidance if you test positive, have COVID-19 symptoms, or have had close contact with a positive case.

· Stay home if you are ill, tested positive, or are awaiting test results. Follow CDC guidance for isolation, quarantine, testing and mask wearing.

· The University of Missouri System’s HR-702 policy requirement was updated in May and no longer requires students, faculty and staff to inform the university if they test positive for COVID-19.

· Students are encouraged to reach out to student health services if they are ill.

· Employees should manage their own personal health measures for COVID-19, similar to other contagious illnesses: stay home and contact your health care provider if you are ill.

Everyone is encouraged to follow the latest guidance on the CDC website. The student health services website also contains COVID-19 guidance.
