Youngstown State University continues to implement evidence-based protocols to monitor and suppress coronavirus in accordance with public health guidelines. YSU works directly with local public health officials to determine what guidelines are appropriate to implement within the context of our local community and will update protocols as needed. Faculty and students are expected to abide by all safety and health policies implemented by the University’s Office of Environmental Occupational Health and Safety as well as all applicable local, state and federal mandates.

YSU recommends that all faculty and students become fully vaccinated. Everyone must continue to perform a daily health assessment. Individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19, have been around someone who has recently tested positive for COVID-19, have symptoms of COVID-19 or have traveled internationally in the past 14 days should complete the COVID-19 Support Form.
