If I’m vaccinated, do I still have to physically distance?

May 12, 2021 (updated June 22, 2021)

Effective Thursday, July 1, UMB’s Policy Requiring Use of Face Coverings will no longer require fully vaccinated people to wear face coverings and/or practice physical distancing while on UMB’s campus. UMB’s campus is defined as all property owned, leased, or operated by UMB. However, students, faculty, and staff who are not fully vaccinated, even if they have received a medical or religious exemption from receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, must continue to wear a mask in accordance with the policy. Fully vaccinated is defined as two weeks after a final vaccine dose. Unvaccinated students, faculty, and staff must practice physical distancing whenever they remove their face covering such as to eat and drink.

In accordance with the CDC’s Requirement for Face Masks on Public Transportation Conveyances and at Transportation Hubs, students, faculty, and staff must wear a face covering when on buses or shuttles operated by UMB whether fully vaccinated or not.
