In accordance with updated guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Erie County Department of Health, UB requires all students, employees and visitors—regardless of their vaccination status—to wear a high-quality, tight-fitting, high-filtration mask indoors and in public settings.
Regardless of vaccination status, high-quality, tight-fitting, high-filtration masks are required in classrooms, hallways, libraries, research and teaching laboratories and other common spaces, as well as UB buses and shuttles.
For fully vaccinated individuals, high-quality, tight-fitting, high-filtration masks
are not required inside personal rooms at residence halls, while eating in on-campus dining areas and spaces, and when alone in personal offices or workstations that are not accessible to the general public. Vaccinated individuals must wear high-quality, tight-fitting, high-filtration masks when moving around the office and interacting with other employees. Partially vaccinated or unvaccinated individuals must wear high-quality, tight-fitting, high-filtration masks at all times, including personal offices and workstations.
UB defines a personal workstation as workspace assigned to one individual, such as a cubicle, that allows for a comfortable amount of physical distance to be maintained between colleagues.
