PFW Ready

Campus Update

Ready for Change

Indiana and Allen County continue to experience significant declines and very low COVID-19 case counts and positivity rates, and self-reported cases on campus continue to decline (with no increase following spring break). As a result, we have ended our face mask requirements on campus. As of Monday, March 21, face masks are optional for students, faculty, staff, and visitors. The Campus Health Clinic and the IU Dental Clinic, however, will continue to require face masks until further notice.

Free Masks

N95 Masks Still Available

Students may still pick up free N95 face masks by showing their student ID at Rhinehart Music Center’s Schatzlein Box Office or the Student Housing Clubhouse.
Faculty and staff may still pick up free N95 face masks at the Schatzlein Box Office as well.
Box office hours are Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m. and Wednesdays from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m.

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.
