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