University Park Among Five Penn State Campuses To Require Indoor Masking

University Park is among the latest crop of five Penn State campuses that will once again require indoor masking beginning Tuesday, May 31.

Face masks will also be required indoors at Penn Stater Beaver, Greater Allegheny, New Kensington, and Schuylkill due to their locations in Pennsylvania counties now with “high” COVID-19 Community Levels, according to the CDC.

Centre County returned to this “high” Community Level in an update on Thursday. This means folks in State College are recommended to wear masks indoors, stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines, and get tested if they show symptoms.

Centre County had previously been at the “low” level for 12 weeks. Penn State completely dropped its mask mandate and began to roll back COVID-19 testing on March 22. It paused operations of its testing clinic on May 13.

Students showing symptoms of COVID-19 can still get tested through myUHS. The university’s COVID-19 dashboard has not been updated since April 7, but Centre County’s seven-day rolling average of positive cases increased to 58 on Thursday, according to the New York Times.

Penn State Abington, Behrend, Brandywine, Great Valley, Hazleton, Lehigh Valley, and Wilkes-Barre also announced new indoor masking requirements Thursday.
