Update on UAlbany Masking and Distancing Requirements

May 19, 2021

Dear Colleagues,

UAlbany’s masking and distancing requirements will remain in place while we review the updated New York State guidance that was announced yesterday.  

To ensure that we continue to provide a safe and healthy work environment for everyone, we ask for your patience and cooperation as we expediently review the new regulations and their impact on our campuses. 

If you are fully vaccinated, please get your NYS Excelsior Pass to make it easier to document your vaccine status, should that be needed in the future. Learn more, including how to get the Excelsior Pass Wallet on your phone.

The University strongly encourages anyone who has not been vaccinated to do so at their earliest convenience.

Meanwhile, please know that we are working in earnest to allow for a safe return to normal work activities and appreciate your understanding as we do so in a fair and comprehensive manner.


Todd Foreman

Vice President, Finance and Administration
