Visitor Guidelines

Following updated CDC guidance, facial masking is now optional, except in classrooms and labs, for UC faculty, staff and students. Beginning March 12, 2022, all masking restrictions will be eliminated including in classroom and labs, as long as rates of hospitalization and transmissibility remain in the low-to-medium zones. 

Because CDC and State of Ohio guidance may change as conditions and scientific recommendations change, this guidance is subject to change as conditions change. Always refer to the most recent communication from the University of Cincinnati for updated guidelines and information.
