Health officials in the U.S. and around the world are monitoring the monkeypox virus due to an increase in cases. We continue to actively monitor developments related to monkeypox and are working closely with public health officials and our partners at Northwell Health.
The University continues to monitor the prevalence of COVID in our community and the CDC and New York State guidelines. As always, we depend on the advice of our partners at Northwell Health. Thanks to all of you and your consideration and respect for our community, we have weathered this pandemic together.
Members of the Hofstra community need to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Visit the Vaccination page for more information.
Mask-wearing will be optional in all indoor spaces on the Hofstra campus, including classrooms. The only exceptions will be in the Student Health Services Office and on the campus shuttle. All passengers of the Hofstra Shuttle will need to show their Pride Pass (available through the portal) to ride the shuttle.
Some members of our community will continue to wear a mask. Masks will remain available in buildings around campus. Those who have small office spaces may ask guests to wear a mask, while others may request physical distance in some circumstances. We ask that everyone heed such requests as a matter of respect and civility.
Visitors to campus must wear a mask if they are not vaccinated.
We are now in the midst of a dynamic endemic. As conditions continue to change, we will continue to reassess the need for masks and other public health protocols.
The University will continue to require that all students and employees be vaccinated against COVID-19. We encourage all those eligible to get a booster shot.
