Due to the increase in COVID-19 cases and recent public health guidance, UAH will require face coverings indoors on campus, effective Monday, August 9. This requirement applies to everyone, regardless of vaccination status.

Exceptions include:

  • When alone in offices and private workspaces
  • In residence hall rooms
  • While actively eating or drinking
  • While actively engaged in exercise

UAH will continue to monitor key data and public health guidance and will work in conjunction with the UA System Health and Safety Task Force to evaluate this temporary guidance.

Vaccines remain key to combating COVID-19. If you have not yet been vaccinated, please consider doing so as soon as possible. The data continue to show these vaccines provide strong protection against infection – especially serious complications – compared to those who are unvaccinated. Vaccination appointments can be made through the UAH Health Portal.

We need your help collecting vital vaccination data so we can make the most informed decisions possible for our campus. If you were vaccinated off campus, please upload a photo of your vaccine card to the UAH Health Portal or bring a copy of your card to the Student Health Center or Faculty and Staff Clinic. Students who receive a vaccine on campus or upload records from an off-campus provider by September 1 will receive $20 UAH Dining Dollars.

Please continue to check your University email and the UAH COVID-19 Campus Guidelines website for updates.
