This site provides access to the most up-to-date information on Penn State's response to the coronavirus, as well as related campus-specific information.
Penn State is strongly encouraging all students, faculty and staff to sign up to receive the first vaccine available to them.
- Employees and World Campus students can provide their vaccination status to the University using SalesForce Health Cloud, a secure online platform for collecting health data. Uploading an image of their vaccination card is optional.
- Students can upload their vaccine information now into the MyUHS portal and are encouraged to do so as soon as their vaccine series is complete.
Regardless of whether they participated in the vaccine incentive program, all students and employees are strongly encouraged to share their vaccination status with the University. Data on vaccination rates among students, faculty and staff are needed to inform the University’s decision-making and its COVID-19 mitigation plans. With this information, University officials will be able to assess vaccination rates across Penn State and modify approaches, if needed, to mitigate spread as appropriate.

Penn State announces immediate COVID-19 masking at all campuses
August 4, 2021 — Due to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 conditions around the country and in Pennsylvania, effective immediately (Aug. 4), Penn State will require all students, faculty, staff and visitors — including those who are vaccinated and unvaccinated — to wear masks indoors at all campuses. Within the last 24 hours, many counties that are home to Penn State campuses have shifted to “orange” status, warranting an immediate adjustment to the University’s on-campus masking requirement.
