Updated ULS Mask Policy

Due to the increase in COVID variant cases in both Adams County and Philadelphia, and in order to continue to keep the ULS community safe, effective August 3, 2021, masks are required for anyone entering a ULS building, including staff, faculty, students and guests, must wear a mask at all times in all public places. This pertains to offices, libraries, restrooms, classrooms, food pantries, mailrooms, laundry areas and any other interior space in a ULS building.
ULS students, faculty and staff were notified of this updated mask policy, along with other pertinent information on August 2, 2021. Masks are currently not required outside ULS buildings.
Regarding planned in person events for the fall, ULS will assess those on a case-by-case basis over the next several weeks and make appropriate announcements.

As of June 14, masks are not required inside ULS buildings for fully vaccinated individuals. For those who are not fully vaccinated, masks will still be required inside all ULS buildings, including administration, residential, chapels and libraries. This information was distributed to students, faculty and staff and posted on ULS social media.
