All Miami faculty, staff, and students who will be using research facilities or studios must follow the University guidelines for COVID-19 prevention, including but not limited to requirements for masking, vaccination, symptom assessment, and hand washing.


Continued Vigilance and Planning:

As the number of vaccinated people continues to increase, the CDC is frequently providing new guidelines on its website. All faculty, staff, and students are strongly encouraged to obtain the vaccine. Nonetheless, faculty and staff should continue to update plans for labs and studios and continue to adapt those plans with future updates, rules, and guidelines. In cases where federal and state guidelines differ, the most conservative guidelines will apply.

To ensure safety, all campus activities must follow:

  1. Campus Guidelines
  2. Butler county guidelines 
  3. State of Ohio guidelines
  4. Oxford City ordinances
  5. Federal guidelines (CDC)
All researchers can view specific guidance and resources on the topics listed below.
