The CDC recently released a set of new interim public health recommendations, and the university is updating its Health and Safety Guidelines accordingly.

Effective immediately, individuals who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (i.e., those who are two weeks past their final dose of an authorized vaccine) no longer need to wear a mask outdoors on campus while alone or in small outdoor groups and gatherings. Masks are still required in crowded outdoor settings and venues (e.g. commencement ceremonies), as well as inside all UB buildings, classrooms, labs and facilities and on campus transportation.
