To align with state and federal guidance, MSU is lifting most of its own COVID-19 mandates, effective immediately, except for health care settings:

  • Face masks are no longer required indoors, regardless of vaccination status.
  • MSU buildings, venues and services can operate without limitations. Buildings will return to normal public access building hours effective Aug. 1. If non-employee access is required earlier than Aug. 1, please contact Facilities Planning and Space Management.
  • Employees, students and others coming to campus no longer have to fill out the daily health screening form.
  • The COVID-19 Early Detection Program is no longer mandatory for undergraduate students. Medical professional students should contact their college about their requirements.

While the lifting of COVID‑19 mandates is welcome news, it is important to remember:

  • More information on state rules still impacting health care settings will be shared and posted in those areas. For now, if you are working in or visiting a health care setting connected to MSU, please continue to wear a face mask and follow all applicable directives.
  • All employees who have been working remotely should continue doing so until told otherwise by a supervisor.
  • Federal rules still mandate face masks when traveling by plane, train and bus, including CATA buses on campus.
  • MSU’s domestic travel policy has returned to normal. For international travel, the level of review is dependent on vaccination status. Please visit the Office for Global Health, Safety and Security COVID webpage for further guidance.
