Keeping our campus and community safe in the time of COVID-19.

This page contains information about DeSales University’s efforts to keep our campus and community safe. Our knowledge and understanding of the COVID-19 virus continues to evolve, and our policies and plans will be updated appropriately as more information becomes available. The priorities for DeSales University’s COVID-19 task force are rooted in planning for the safety, health, and wellbeing of our students, faculty, and staff.

Campus Mitigations

DeSales University has adopted the Wolf administration recommendation and lifted all mitigation orders for University operations as of May 31, 2021. This means that classrooms, dining spaces, lounges, and meeting rooms can return to full capacity. In-person meetings and gatherings can resume. Zoom and a combination of in-person/Zoom hybrid meetings may continue.  

Mask Wearing on Campus

On May 16, 2021, both the CDC and the Pennsylvania Department of Health updated guidance on mask wearing for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals. Effective immediately, the University’s policy on the use of masks will be revised to match the updated guidance. The revised policy is as follows:

  • Fully vaccinated individuals can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing.  
  • Non-vaccinated individuals must continue to wear a mask or face covering both indoors and outdoors and maintain social distance from others.
