We are grateful to our faculty and staff for their tremendous dedication and patience throughout these difficult and uncertain times. From engaging and supporting our students remotely to keeping our buildings safe and clean, the people of Pitt-Bradford have continued to provide students with an excellent and inclusive Pitt-Bradford experience while helping to keep our campus community healthy and safe.
Proof of Vaccination
Employees are not required to disclose their vaccinations status. However, The University of Pittsburgh requires every student, faculty and staff member to comply with certain mitigation measures unless they provide proof that they have been vaccinated. Supervisors and other management should refrain from asking employees about their vaccination status as such dialogue could prompt disclosure of confidential medical information, which is protected under the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990).
Upload your proof of vaccination online. You will need to complete a short form with the type and dates of your vaccine and upload your photo or image.
Please note that it is generally easier to complete the form and upload a file from most smartphone devices as compared to desktop computers. Please refer to this Word document for more information.
Mandatory virus testing
Any student, faculty or staff member who does not provide proof of their full vaccination status will be required to take a weekly COVID test. This is to keep our community safe. Mandatory weekly virus testing will begin the week of August 30. Additional details regarding this testing.
