What if someone in my office refuses to get vaccinated? Can I be relocated?

The University strongly encourages all students, faculty and staff to take whichever vaccine is available to them the soonest. Currently, protocols include wearing face masks and adhering to physical distancing practices, including maintaining six feet of physical distance between another person. Additional information about masking and physical distancing is available on the Health Guidelines page.

If a Penn State employee chooses to disclose their vaccination status, they are free to do so; however, the University will not disclose employee vaccine information to other employees or supervisors. Those who choose to be vaccinated are protecting themselves, as well as others, and therefore should have no concerns about the non-vaccinated individuals in their office.
