COVID-19 Campus Updates

Campus Status

Miami strongly recommends its community members follow CDC guidance for COVID-19 prevention in accordance with the associated CDC's community risk level for Butler County, which is updated every Thursday.

This week's status:

On its website, the CDC lists the following recommendations for mask wearing:

  • High Risk (Red): Wear a well-fitting mask indoors in public, regardless of vaccination status or individual risk.
  • Medium Risk (Yellow): If you are at high risk for severe illness, talk to your healthcare provider about whether you need to wear a mask and take other precautions.
  • Low Risk (Green): Wear a mask based on your personal preference, informed by your personal level of risk.

There is no universal mask requirement on campus at this time. However, if we experienced a spike of illness on campus among employees or students, or if there were a new, more serious variant, it is possible we would need to temporarily adjust our approach to ensure continued campus operations. We do not anticipate needing that action, but we have all learned that we cannot predict every possibility for the future. Additionally, Miami asks members of our community to honor an individual’s request to wear a mask in their space (e.g. in a classroom, lab, residence hall room, office, etc.) as a courtesy.
