Guidelines

Effective February 6, 2023

COVID-19 Guidelines

We encourage all members of the Kettering community to follow behaviors on and off campus that protect themselves and others from serious infection while the University continues to monitor COVID-19 conditions.

Face Covering

Masks remain an effective measure for enhanced personal protection against the spread of COVID-19, especially for individuals who have a compromised immune status, who are not up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccinations, or who have an increased risk of contracting COVID-19. 

Wearing a mask is optional in all areas on campus except the Wellness Center.

Anyone may choose to wear a mask at any time. Masks are available at the Campus Safety office.

Vaccinations & Boosters

Vaccinations and boosters are encouraged but not mandatory. The University does not provide them. You may obtain them at local area pharmacies.
