COVID-19 Campus Update | 2:04 p.m.

Hello Miami community,


As we transition toward an endemic state of disease, Miami University will no longer maintain our COVID-19 dashboard. If interested, we encourage you to visit the CDC COVID-19 Community Levels Dashboard (which notes community risk) and the Butler County COVID-19 Dashboard (which notes community transmission rates) to see up-to-date statistics for our local community.


As cases continue to decline locally and across the country, we are continuing to update our policies to match CDC guidelines. Moving forward, our masking requirement will match the CDC’s community risk level for Butler County:

  • High risk (red): Masks are required indoors in all locations on campus.
  • Medium risk (yellow): Masks are required in classrooms during instruction and recommended indoors elsewhere*.
  • Low risk (green): Masks are optional on campus*.

*Masks may still be required in some settings, such as clinical healthcare facilities, some lab/research spaces, and on public transportation. 

We will update the community about our status each Wednesday. Please stay aware of the risk level of our community and mask appropriately moving forward. 

This week’s status is “low risk” and masks are no longer required indoors in most settings campus-wide. However, some faculty and staff may continue to request that others wear a mask in individual classrooms, research labs, or offices. Please continue to carry a mask to wear in these situations to protect the health of vulnerable people in our community and respect the Miamians who make these requests.

If you prefer to continue to wear a mask, you are encouraged to do so. A KN95 or N95 mask offers good protection for the individual, even if those around you are not in a mask. If you need these masks, please email; we have a limited supply for distribution.


With spring break just over one week away, we recommend (but do not require) you pick up at least two at-home antigen tests: one to use before you leave campus and another just before you return. At-home antigen tests are available while supplies last to those with a Miami ID on the Oxford and Regional campuses. 

Check your email for an invitation to participate in free surveillance testing from While your participation in surveillance testing is not required, it is strongly encouraged. 

Should you test positive for COVID-19, please complete the self-report form.
