Earlier this week, Mayor Muriel Bowser announced a modification of the mask mandate in the District of Columbia, which would relax indoor mask requirements in various locations and business types.
As a result, undergraduate courses conducted the final week of classes (November 29 – December 3, 2021) will be held online as will any final examinations for undergraduate students.
Nearly 2,000 employees have uploaded vaccination documentation into Workday. We will be contacting employees directly who have not yet uploaded their vaccination records to assure compliance with the requirement.
Thank you for your cooperation in this critical effort to keep our campus safe.
Assuring that all eligible members of our community are vaccinated and complying with the public health protocols is the surest way to protect the health of the Howard University community and provide as safe an environment as possible.
