Vanderbilt to keep masking, physical distancing protocols in place

The CDC announced on Tuesday new guidelines regarding outdoor masking for vaccinated individuals when alone or in small groups.

Vanderbilt’s COVID-19 safety protocols and mask requirements on and off campus will remain the same, whether individuals are currently vaccinated or not. 

With an influx of guests and graduates planning to celebrate Commencement who may or may not be vaccinated, and the university’s continued efforts to finish the semester while protecting the health and safety of the Vanderbilt community as much as possible, all individuals on the Vanderbilt campus must continue to follow Vanderbilt protocols.

The university will announce any changes to protocols after the COVID-19 safety protocols working group submits its recommendations in mid-May.
