Dear Penn State Scranton,
The safety of our students, staff and faculty is our primary priority as the Covid-19 pandemic and the new variants remain an ongoing challenge, and we want to make sure that we are providing as safe an environment as possible.
At the current time, face masks are required to be worn indoors on campuses in counties identified by the CDC as having HIGH Covid-19 levels. Please visit the University Status page for a list of locations that require masking indoors.
Individuals are expected to review campus policies and procedures and local municipal ordinances related to COVID-19 mitigation. Per CDC guidance, individual municipalities, businesses and other organizations may set their own masking and physical distancing expectations.
Our commitment to providing you with a quality education and all the resources you need to attain your academic goals will still be of utmost importance to us, and you will still have access to all of the resources of Penn State University.
As we continue in our new normal and dealing with Covid-19, I'm sure we will encounter some challenges that will require some restrictions which are needed to provide as safe an environment for everyone as possible. However, but I want you to know our commitment to you remains the same.
Marwan A. Wafa, Chancellor
