Rules for CMTC Operations - as of 5/10/22
Vaccine Requirement

The University of Maryland will continue to require up-to-date vaccination (including a booster when eligible) against COVID-19 for all on-campus faculty, staff and students. Getting a second booster is not necessary to be considered up-to-date at this time. Vaccines have proven to be effective in reducing the spread of the virus on our campus over the past year, and will continue to be an important part of mitigating the risk and the seriousness of COVID-19 in our community.
Travel Protocols

Effective immediately, all university-related travel will be permitted.
Rules for CMTC Operations - as of 1/08/22

  1. Every member of our community – faculty, staff and students – will be required to remain up to date with the vaccine mandate by obtaining a mRNA (Pfizer or Moderna) vaccine booster by January 24 or within 14 days of becoming eligible. You may upload your booster information at www.myuhc.umd.edu by clicking on "Enter My COVID-19 Vaccination Information."

  2. All faculty, staff and students must be tested by a rapid antigen test (including home tests) no more than 48 hours before coming to campus on January 24.

  3. If you test positive, you may not travel to campus and you must follow all applicable CDC guidance for isolation and testing as well as any additional guidance issued by your state and/or county.

  4. All community members who remain unvaccinated, including those with medical or religious exemptions, will be required to test twice weekly throughout the spring semester.

  5. Proper wearing of masks and face-coverings remains one of our most effective methods to reduce transmission. The indoor mask-wearing mandate from Prince George’s County remains in effect, as it was for the fall semester.

  6. Masks must be worn at all times while indoors, including in all offices, residence halls and dining areas (except while actively eating or drinking).

  7. KN95 masks are required in all classroom settings and recommended everywhere. Continuing the practice from the fall semester, fully vaccinated instructors may remove their mask to address the class, provided they maintain 6 feet of physical distance from others at all times.

  8. KN95 masks may be obtained from the information desk at Stamp Student Union.

  9. Containing the spread of the virus to the greatest extent possible is a shared responsibility for every member of our campus community. Thus, all faculty, staff and students must electronically pledge to abide by all health protocols.

  1. Members may come only for half-days at a time to keep the crowd minimum (half-days are 9-1:30 and 1:30-6).

  9. Eating in the office must be kept at a minimum, and members must clean up the offices if they eat there, but it is better if no eating takes place (hence the half-day rules).

  10. All university regulations regarding Covid-testing etc. must be adhered to by everybody.
