Updated Penn Mask and Distancing Requirements

August 5, 2021:  In accordance with the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for areas with high transmission rates, Penn now requires that all members of the Penn community and visitors wear masks while indoors in public or shared spaces. Exceptions to the masking requirement include single occupancy offices and shared spaces where 6ft distancing can be maintained, with roommates in our college house suites/rooms, and by permission in instructional settings for pedagogical reasons. In addition, Penn is instituting a required twice-a-week testing program for members of our community who are not vaccinated or choose not to report their vaccination information.
