Effective immediately, students, faculty, and staff who are not fully vaccinated are no longer required to be tested for COVID-19 on a weekly basis.

Full vaccination is strongly recommended, but not required, with the exception of students and faculty in the Nursing and Allied Health programs. Students and faculty in these programs must be vaccinated in order to comply with the vaccine mandate adopted by clinical sites.

Masks will continue to be required indoors for all persons (vaccinated or unvaccinated) and voluntary testing will remain available for free on the OCC campus for students, faculty and staff. Contact tracing, quarantining of positive tested individuals and related communication practices will continue.
