Truman State University has announced its COVID-19 guidelines for the upcoming fall semester. Masks are not required, though unvaccinated students, faculty and staff are “strongly advised” to wear them. Anyone who prefers to remain masked can also do so. University officials worked with CDC guidelines and health officials to formulate the plan for fall. According to a recent survey 88.9% of students who responded said they are fully vaccinated. The percentage of faculty and staff responding to the survey who are fully vaccinated is 96.5%. Truman says the high vaccination rates significantly reduce the probability of a significant COVID-19 outbreak on campus.
