Moving from Pandemic to Endemic

We appreciate your continued flexibility and adaptability as public health guidelines have shifted over time.

Campus Status

Miami's 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.

At medium and low-risk levels, masks may still be required in some settings.

We will update the community about our status each Friday. There may be times when we move back to the high-risk category and we will need to restore the full campus mask requirement for a time.

This week's status:

Please see our FAQs for additional information about the mask requirement.
