K-State updates face covering, physical distancing guidance, effective June 2

Submitted by Division of Communications and Marketing

Effective Wednesday, June 2, Kansas State University will change the face covering and physical distancing guidance. Face coverings and physical distancing are optional for all individuals on K-State campuses and at university events. Unvaccinated students, faculty and staff who can receive the COVID-19 vaccine are strongly encouraged to do so.

Masking and physical distancing requirements remain in effect for the following groups and settings:

  • Lafene Health Center and other patient-facing settings.
  • University shuttles due to Department of Transportation policy.

Vaccination against COVID-19 is an effective way for individuals to support their own health and the health and wellness of the K-State community and our host communities. Individuals are considered fully vaccinated two weeks past the final dose of a two-dose vaccine or one dose of a single-dose vaccine. See Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance for more information. 

Lafene Health Center continues to offer COVID-19 vaccination opportunities for K-State students, faculty and staff members. Single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccines will be offered until Friday, July 30. Appointments are required and can be made on the myLafene+ patient portal or by calling Lafene Health Center at 785-532-6544.

For those in other parts of the state, Kansas also offers a Find My Vaccine website.

Signage and the university COVID-19 website will be updated over the next several weeks. Read more about the vaccine and university guidance on the COVID-19 website.
