As UAH continues to transition to normal operations, we would like to announce the latest updates regarding our COVID-19 health and safety requirements.

Face coverings: Consistent with CDC guidance and the UA System Health and Safety Plan, UAH has modified on-campus face covering guidelines for non-clinical settings.

Effective immediately at UAH and all UA System campuses:

  • Fully vaccinated individuals (14 days or more following the final dose) are no longer required to wear face coverings indoors or outside.
  • Individuals who are not fully vaccinated are required to wear face coverings at all times indoors except when face coverings are not required by existing guidance. (e.g., established rules for residence halls, or when individuals are alone in a private workspace).

Vaccines: It is vital that we strive for full vaccination throughout our campus community to continue to ensure the safety and health of everyone here at our University. Faculty, staff and students may visit the UAH Health Portal to schedule an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccination. To schedule an appointment for a household member age 12+, contact the UAH COVID Scheduling hotline at 256.824.2400. If you are not on campus, you can find a vaccine site near you at Although strongly encouraged, COVID vaccination is not a requirement for enrollment or employment at this time.

Social Distancing: The University will continue to require a 3-foot distance between individuals for all faculty, staff and students wherever possible until further notice.

Thank you for your continued help and vigilance in meeting these requirements and guidelines. Please continue to check your University email and the UAH Return to Campus website for updates. The website is being revised and will be fully updated by June 1 to reflect the current information being provided and guidance for summer 2021.
