Updated 7/1/21 with a clarification: Masks are required to be worn by everyone on all Lehigh buses. 

Dear Members of the Lehigh Community and Lehigh Families,

In light of recently updated guidance from the Pennsylvania Department of Health, as well as guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and OSHA’s workplace guidance, the university has adjusted its policy regarding masks and social distancing: 

  • Effective immediately and continuing unless conditions change, vaccinated individuals will NOT be required to wear a mask or socially distance indoors or outdoors on Lehigh campuses, with a few exceptions.  

  • For example, some on-campus locations, such as the Health and Wellness Center (HWC), will continue to require masks of all who enter (a recommended best practice for health settings). Masks also may be required where people who are at high risk for complications due to COVID are located.

  • Updated July 1: Masks are required on all Lehigh buses regardless of vaccination status. 

  • All members of the campus community and visitors should have a mask on hand at all times and must abide by the mask requirements of a particular location or facility if applicable, regardless of their vaccination status.

  • Refer to the updates for frequently asked questions, which will be updated throughout the summer, and the campus status page.

Individuals who are not yet fully vaccinated are strongly encouraged to continue wearing a mask and to practice social distancing, especially indoors and at larger gatherings and events. There also may be circumstances where students, faculty, staff or visitors may be required to show evidence (via the Hawkwatch app) that you have assessed your symptoms and been cleared for access. Event organizers may make this a requirement on a case-by-case basis.


Thank you for your continued attention to the health and safety of our community.
