In observance of Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s Executive Directive issued January 15 for managing responses to COVID-19, George Mason University will now strongly encourage employees to receive COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters, and to share their vaccination status with Mason. Campus mechanisms to obtain and store this information will remain in place. This is a departure from our requirement issued earlier.
National data and our own continue to show that vaccines have been proven to be the single most effective means to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and the severity of its symptoms.
All other masking and testing requirements remain in place at this time.
