Keeping the UBalt community safe.
The University of Baltimore continues to meet the many challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic with one principle in mind: In order to deliver and receive a quality education, above all else our community must be healthy and safe.
Along with other University System of Maryland (USM) institutions, as of June 1, 2022, The University of Baltimore has discontinued its vaccination mandate for students and employees, and related tracking for individuals with exemptions. As of that date, mandatory testing or reporting will no longer be required for any UBalt community member. Students and employees must still follow Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Baltimore City guidance, including quarantining after exposure or positive test result. Students and employees are still strongly encouraged to report positive cases to the University in a timely manner.
Also, effective June 1, building hours and access control have reverted to their pre-COVID schedule, with no restrictions based on vaccination status. Given ongoing changes in students' preferences and hybrid service options during the pandemic, you should verify an office's schedule before you travel to campus during the summer months.
The University System of Maryland continues to strongly encourage everyone who is eligible to get vaccinated and boosted, and UBalt continues to strongly encourage preventative testing as well as the use of KN95 masks when indoors, in smaller classrooms, offices, etc. Please remember that both KN95 masks and at-home test kits are available for free on campus. These resources are available at the following locations:
- Security Ambassador desks in the Academic Center, Angelos Law Center and Student Center
- Information Desk in the Bogomolny Library
At-Home Test Kits:
- Academic Center, Rooms 112 and 113
- Campus Pantry, Student Center Room 202A
- School of Law Dean's Suite,
- Office of Human Resources in the Charles Royal Building
The University is monitoring the number of COVID-19 cases in Maryland, especially as they impact Baltimore. If the City of Baltimore's Department of Health should respond to a surge in cases, and reintroduces a mask requirement, our campus will comply and consider any additional steps we may need to take. As an urban institution, it's in our interest to follow the advice of local public-health professionals.
Stay safe, stay healthy, and let's continue the fight against COVID-19.
