COVID-19 vaccine requirements for students
On August 20, 2021, the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health approved COVID-19 vaccine requirements for the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) students. All undergraduate and graduate students who plan on enrolling for the Spring 2022 semester are required to provide documentation of a completed vaccination series against COVID-19 before enrolling.
COVID-19 vaccine requirements for NSHE employees
The Nevada System of Higher Education Board of Regents approved an emergency amendment to the NSHE Code [External PDF] that sets forth policies and procedures enacting a mandatory COVID-19 vaccine requirement for all NSHE employees, effective Dec. 1.
Regardless of vaccination status, all students, employees, and members of the public must wear masks indoors.
Students, employees, and members of the public, who have not been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, are also still required to wear face coverings outdoors while on campus, irrespective of whether other individuals are present.
There are no social distancing requirements in Nevada or at the University.
Contact tracing for positive COVID-19 cases will continue, and individuals who have been diagnosed are encouraged to complete our COVID-19 self-reporting form. Daily sign-in sheets for the purpose of contact tracing are no longer required.
