Subject: Summer II Public Health Protocols - A Message from President Clark
Dear BSU Community,
Based on recommendations from the BSU Together Again Task Force, BSU will be extending its Summer I public health protocols to Summer II classes (July 11-August 12). The Summer I protocols functioned well in keeping our campus community safe and, based on state and county level data, we see no reason to change these measures.
As a reminder, the major elements of our Summer I protocols included:
- While BSU remains mask optional throughout most of the campus, masks will be required to be worn in classrooms and instructional spaces during scheduled class times.
- New students attending Summer I classes in-person and/or using BSU facilities are required to be up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccines. New students can attest to being vaccinated here.
- New employees will also be required to be up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccines. New employees can attest to being vaccinated here.
Please see the Summer I health communication for additional details.
The Summer II protocols will remain in place until further notice. The university will be issuing public health guidelines for the Fall 2022 semester later this summer.
Thank you once again for your cooperation as we work to keep our campus healthy and safe. Best wishes to you and your families for a wonderful and restful summer.
Frederick W. Clark Jr., Esq.
