  • For prospective and admitted students and their families, please review our Admissions site for visitor information and opportunities and follow any specific instructions provided.

Health & Safety, Working at Lehigh, Spring 2022

Masks are optional indoors and outdoors on Lehigh campuses, with the exception of the Health and Wellness Center and in specific contexts or where people who are at high risk for complications due to COVID are located. In these situations signage and/or other means will be used to communicate this requirement. Events, meetings and registrar-scheduled classes may be areas where masking is required by event organizers or instructors. Masks must continue to be worn around others for 10 full days when isolating in place after a positive COVID test and after an exposure to an individual who has tested positive for COVID; please follow CDC guidance in these cases. Masks are recommended on Lehigh buses.

We will continue to monitor data and guidance from the CDC and other public health sources, especially as it relates to data on new variants. In addition, we continue to strongly encourage everyone to get vaccinated. Data continue to show that full vaccination is our best course of defense against serious illness from COVID and the threat of new variants.
