Operating Safely

Most university offices are working remotely through the spring semester. However, the offices are accessible by phone or email.

Getting vaccinated

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization have released detailed information about why and how vaccines keep us safer and healthier. Read the key reasons to get vaccinated

If you are vaccinated against COVID-19, you are eligible to win prizes, including up to $2,500 from the University of Pittsburgh! Complete this Voluntary Disclosure Form to be entered for a chance to win great prizes during weekly drawings starting on Wednesday, June 23. 

After consulting with the Healthcare Advisory Group, the University will implement the following:

Face Coverings:
•    Vaccinated individuals will no longer be required to wear face coverings when on campus outdoors. 
•    Everyone must continue to wear face coverings inside University buildings. 
Physical distancing: No longer required.

As a reminder, wearing a face covering is not a signal of vaccination status. Some people will continue to wear a mask regardless of vaccination status as a matter of individual preference and comfort. Please have patience for yourself and for others as we navigate these changes.  

Fall 2021 update

Chancellor Gallagher has announced that – while details remain to be worked out, and plans are subject to change – the fall 2021 term should see a return to on-campus, in-person instruction for most classes.  

“This is all very encouraging news,” said Dr. Catherine Koverola, Pitt-Bradford’s president. “We do, however, need to keep in mind that these plans are subject to change depending on the conditions as we approach the fall semester. As we’ve seen the past year, the pandemic has required us to pivot – sometimes quickly – and we will need to continue to be flexible in our planning.”
