LINCOLN, Neb. (WOWT) - The four campuses that make up the University of Nebraska system have new and updated guidelines related to COVID-19 protocols.

The updates are based on new guidelines from the CDC and apply to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, University of Nebraska-Omaha, University of Nebraska-Kearney, and University of Nebraska Medical Center.

All vaccinated faculty, staff, students, and visitors are encouraged — but not required — to wear face masks indoors. Unvaccinated people should continue to wear masks.

Masks are required indoors for everyone at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.

A COVID-19 vaccination is strongly recommended for all members of the university community but not required.

Faculty, staff, and students are not required to disclose their COVID-19 vaccination status, but those who choose to keep it confidential should expect to take additional safety measures.

COVID-19 testing will be available on the campuses based on local health conditions.

Protocols also may evolve as local health conditions change.
