Pitt's Health Rules

Updated rules and requirements are effective Monday, March 28, 2022.

Face Coverings

As each of the communities in which our campuses are located are currently designated by the CDC to be areas of low or medium COVID-19 levels, masks are optional inside University facilities on all campuses. 

Read the revised rules >>

Pitt-Greensburg campus announcement >>

Consistent with CDC guidance for public transportation, masks will continue to be required on University-operated shuttles. Also, since masks are still required in health care settings, you will need to continue to adhere to masking guidance for those spaces we share with UPMC and other designated clinical settings.

Please respect individual decisions regarding whether or not to wear a mask. All members of our community are welcome to wear a face covering at any time, for any reason. The University will continue to provide face coverings, including N95 masks, at concierge stations throughout our campuses. 

Learn more about the change in masking guidance in a video from John Williams, MD, co-director of the COVID-19 Medical Response Office.

Please remember wearing a well-fitted mask will help protect you from contracting SARS-CoV-2, even if those around you are not wearing masks. Masks are highly effective at reducing the risk of contracting any respiratory virus for the person wearing the mask. 

Personal Practices

There are simple steps you can take to mitigate the spread of illness—including COVID-19, colds and the flu—and protect yourself and others.

  • If you haven’t yet, get vaccinated and boosted.
  • If you’re sick, stay home until you feel better.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly and often.
  • If you need to cough or sneeze, do so in a disposable tissue or your bended elbow. 
  • If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer that’s at least 60% alcohol.
  • Frequently clean high-touch surfaces within your area, like your desk and office doorknob using the supplied materials. 
  • Try to use your elbow on high-touch public surfaces, like elevator buttons or push-open doors. 
  • Limit the time you spend with others in small spaces like bathrooms and elevators.

The Healthcare Advisory Group and COVID-19 Medical Response Office regularly review campus data and public health guidance and may change guidance as needed.
