COVID-19 Campus Update | 11:58 a.m.

Each week, the COVID-19 Response Team will be providing a university-wide update on the pandemic and campus operations on Wednesdays by noon. 

New this week

  • Each day more and more people are receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. As more employees begin to return to campus to work and we plan for the fall semester, we have received several inquiries regarding vaccination status. A new set of FAQs was added to the Healthy Together vaccine website. We hope you find this information helpful. We will continue to update the answers to these questions and more at
  • Please be sure to keep your second-dose vaccine appointments. Due to limited capacity, we cannot reschedule appointments at our Oxford campus clinics.
  • Given new recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Miami University is adjusting its on-campus mask requirement. Our indoor mask requirement remains unchanged. Outdoors, masks are required when it is difficult to maintain 6 feet of physical distance from those you do not live with, such as at events or when entering or leaving buildings.


  • At-home, self-administered antigen tests will be available for pick-up May 6 - 17 at various locations for any Miami community member who wants to take a test prior to departing campus for the summer or attending commencement. These tests have been made available, free of charge. More information coming next week.
  • The Healthy Together Testing Program will continue at Harris Hall through the end of the semester. Students can expect to receive invitations to be tested up until May 7.


  • Faculty and staff, if you are fully vaccinated —both doses of Pfizer or Moderna, or 1 dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine— please consider informing the university of your vaccination status. We encourage you to report your vaccination status as we monitor our need for more clinics in the coming weeks and months.
  • Students, if you are fully vaccinated, use the MedProctor Portal to share your documentation with the university. Doing so will allow your test result/vaccination record to be shared with the Miami COVID-19 testing and response teams, as needed, in order to exempt you from testing, isolation, and/or quarantine.
  • Oxford city ordinances remain in effect. Masks are required indoors. Masks are also required outdoors when you are unable to maintain six-foot physical distance from people who are not household members. Social gatherings are limited to 10 people.
  • The Miami University COVID-19 Dashboard includes the latest information about COVID numbers on campus.
