For outdoor spaces on campus, university officials say those who are not fully vaccinated should wear a mask if they are unable to maintain a safe social distance. The same applies to immunocompromised people or people who are in close proximity to an immunocompromised person.
Members of the campus community who are not vaccinated or unable to provide proof of vaccination will need to undergo regular tests for COVID-19, university officials say.
Pitt health officials say they will continue to evaluate campus safety guidelines as needed and make changes as needed.
The university says anyone who does not adhere to campus COVID-19 guidelines and standards will be denied access to campus or face disciplinary action.
Pitt officials say any member of the university community who tests positive for COVID-19 regardless of vaccination status must notify university officials and isolate them pending medical clearance.
