Protecting Our Campus

We Are Ready

Even though changes and challenges continue to arise due to COVID-19, Purdue Fort Wayne is ready. We are ready because we value the Mastodon community—our students, faculty, staff, and visitors. We will continue to be vigilant, monitoring the ever-evolving COVID-19 situation, and, as always, continuing to be guided by local, state, and federal agencies, including the CDC’s health and safety guidelines, to help protect our campus.

Mask Protocol Update

Based on Indiana’s COVID-19 data, the university requires all students, staff, faculty, and visitors—regardless of vaccination status—to wear face masks indoors while on campus through Monday, January 31.

Vaccinations

We strongly encourage all students, staff, and faculty to get fully vaccinated and to get a booster dose when eligible. COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective, and free. They significantly reduce the chances of severe illness or hospitalization, and they help keep you out of quarantine and on campus. Employees can take paid time off to attend vaccination or booster appointments for themselves or their children.

COVID-19 Reports Dashboard

We maintain a dashboard (updated on Fridays) with aggregated case, quarantine, and vaccination data for students, faculty, and staff. While this dashboard, which relies on information that is self-reported by students and employees, provides a substantial snapshot of case, quarantine, and vaccination data, it is not a comprehensive data set.
