Students can join meetings/classes by Zoom at any location on campus if they have a laptop with a webcam and audio of their own but there are also many computer stations on campus that they can use. Seen a list of Zoom-capable computers on the Information Technology page.
Proof of vaccination
June 1, 2021 — Penn State is strongly encouraging students, faculty and staff to get vaccinated against COVID-19 and to share their vaccination status with the University after they receive their final dose.
Employees and World Campus students can now provide their vaccination status to the University using SalesForce Health Cloud, a secure online platform for collecting health data. A step-by-step guide to help the University’s employees with submission is available as well via the COVID-19 Vaccination webpage on the Return to Work website.
Students can upload their vaccination records through myUHS.
After providing proof of vaccination, students and employees who wish to participate in the University’s vaccine incentive program must also complete an online form to become eligible for the weekly drawings. Students who have previously submitted their proof of vaccination and wish to opt into the incentive program also must complete this form.
The latest vaccination information for University community members is available on Penn State’s virus information website.
AUG. 6, 2021 — Penn State has announced a change to its masking requirements effective Aug. 5, 202, to require everyone to wear a mask inside of all University buildings, regardless of vaccination status. This requirement is to align with recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to assist in the mitigation efforts to lessen the spread of COVID-19. Students, faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to get vaccinated — and share their vaccination status with the University — as soon as possible.
Students both on-campus and off-campus who have not shared with the University that they have been vaccinated will be notified when they have to test and there will be significant consequences for noncompliance. Consequences for noncompliance include a process of warnings and sanctions up to and including suspension.
There are also plans for testing employees who are not vaccinated or have not shared their vaccination status.
University leadership will continue monitoring developments and vaccine availability carefully and may alter the approach in the future if it is determined to be in the best interest of the community or called for by public policy.
