Help us keep our USI campus safe.
The University is open and we are monitoring COVID-19 developments daily and following recommendations and guidance from the State, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Indiana State Department of Health and local healthcare providers.
We value a culture of care and concern and our faculty and staff are working hard to ensure the safety of our entire community and visitors. We understand that, during this pandemic, things are different, and at times challenging, but as Screagles, we take care of each other.
Given the more virulent nature of the COVID-19 Omicron variant, the University is offering a higher-level masking option (at the recommendation of the CDC and local and national medical experts) by providing KN95 masks to the USI community. Starting Monday, January 24, KN95 masks are available for distribution to students, and DOSO will hand out two (2) masks to each student on request, allowing wearers to rotate the masks.
The University of Southern Indiana currently strongly encourages, but is not mandating, all members of our community, employees and students, be vaccinated against COVID-19. We will continue to monitor and evaluate local, state and federal safety guidelines related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The FDA-approved Pfizer vaccine is available at the University Health Center.
