Leadership Update February 28 2022

 Dear university colleagues and students,

Throughout the pandemic, we have ensured our MUSC COVID-19 response evolved in keeping with updates from the CDC and SC DHEC and to maintain alignment with the MUSC Health system guidelines. Based on new CDC guidelines, the current number of positive cases per day, and the positivity rates in our area, the university is removing the current mask mandate for all university employees and students as well as visitors effective Tuesday, March 1.

Our university directives are updated, and you can read those in full on the University Updates on COVID-19 page. Included in the revised directives is the option to hold university events with food. Please note, MUSC public transportation will continue to require passengers to mask until further notice.

We continue to encourage unvaccinated individuals and those with pre-existing conditions who may be adversely affected by COVID-19 to wear masks for their own protection.

As always, we are grateful for your patience and understanding as we continue to navigate COVID-19 and its challenges, and we thank you for your continued commitment to excellence.
