COVID case counts have risen rapidly recently and May 12th, the CDC elevated Nassau County to “high” level of community risk, and recommended that everyone be masked indoors.
Therefore, Hofstra University will again require masks indoors in all public settings, including classrooms, academic buildings, event spaces, common areas, residence hall lounges, and the library, effective Saturday, May 14.
Masks are also required on the campus shuttle, which is consistent with ongoing masking policies in public transit settings.
We may institute different protocols for events on campus, such as commencement. We will continue to do surveillance testing on campus and to monitor the COVID-related community data deemed pertinent by public health officials and our partners at Northwell Health.
The University will continue to require that all students and employees be vaccinated against COVID-19 and get the COVID-19 booster when they are eligible.
For assistance with COVID-19 Vaccine and Booster Compliance, call the Together Again Call Center at 516-463-6000.
