COVID-19

Rocket Prevention Principles

UToledo is taking a number of steps to ensure we are providing a safe campus environment for our employees, students and guests.

  • Monitoring for symptoms. Before coming to campus each day, employees and students need to take their temperature and complete a self-assessment for symptoms of COVID-19, such as cough, chills, fatigue or shortness of breath. Anyone with a temperature at or above 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit or who is experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19 should not come to campus and contact their primary care physician.
  • Getting vaccinated. Employees and students are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Proof of vaccination or an approved exemption was due by Nov. 15, 2021. With the spread of the highly contagious omicron variant, the University is strongly encouraging all members of the campus community to receive a COVID-19 booster shot when eligible.
  • Wearing face coverings. Well-fitting masks that fully cover the nose and mouth are required for all individuals, regardless of vaccination status while indoors on our campuses, effective Aug. 6, 2021. Surgical masks, which are more protective than cloth masks, will be freely available on campus for faculty, staff and students to wear instead of or in addition to cloth masks. Individuals are not required to wear masks while alone in their office or while eating. Masks are not required outdoors.
  • Keeping a clean workspace. In addition to enhanced cleaning from Environmental Services, employees and students should regularly clean and sanitize their personal workspaces throughout the day. All individuals must also practice good personal hygiene, including frequent handwashing.
