Wilkes University looks forward to welcoming you back for the 2021-22 academic year. With much of our campus community vaccinated, we are returning to reduced restrictions. But the pandemic is not over. Cases continue to be reported worldwide, particularly among those who are not vaccinated. Fortunately, the existing vaccines are proven to be highly effective against existing variants, some of which are more contagious and more severe than previous strains of the virus.
The protocols listed below focus on how both vaccinated and unvaccinated members of our campus community can learn, work and interact with others as safely as possible. As always, our decisions will be made with your health and safety at top of mind and under the guidance of national, state and regional health officials.
Though vaccines are not required, it is the best protection we have. We encourage everyone who can be vaccinated to do so for the health and safety of themselves and others.
As the health situation changes, so will our protocols. Please continue to monitor this page and your Wilkes email for additional announcements.
