As Andrews University and the world continues to seek to effectively slow and stop the spread of COVID-19 thanks to ongoing safety measures and increasing numbers of COVID-19 vaccinations and immunity, we continue in our commitment for Andrews University to be World Changers for a changing world. With fall semester of the 2021–2022 school year, we’ll be making some additional and significant steps toward a campus community experience that will better reflect our reality before the pandemic, even as it will be crucial to continue to take some important steps to keep ourselves, each other and our Andrews University community safe.

As vaccination rates increase and COVID-19 guidelines change for Andrews University, the state of Michigan, the U.S.A., and our world, we encourage you to bookmark and consult this page for the latest updates and changes.

New Masking Guidelines.

To track the impact and risks emerging from the increases in COVID-19 infections, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has established a system that monitors the level of COVID-19 spread in each county in the United States. Under the monitoring of this system, Berrien County has recently moved to a “high” level of transmission.

With this “high” level of transmission, the CDC and our local Berrien County Health Department has recommended the use of masks indoors for all individuals, regardless of vaccination status.

As a result, effective Monday, Aug. 16, 2021, and through Thursday, Sept. 30, 2021, all students, employees and visitors to campus will be required to wear masks in the public spaces inside Andrews University campus buildings regardless of vaccination status.

You can read more about this new guideline here.
