On May 16, 2022, President Mun Choi suspended the HR 702 policy related to COVID-19, including pausing the requirement that faculty, staff and students report COVID symptoms or diagnosis centrally to the university. Instead, employees are expected to manage their own personal health regarding COVID as they would for other contagious illnesses – working with your primary health care provider and your supervisor to determine remote or time off arrangements during an illness.

Students are also expected to manage their own personal health regarding COVID as they would for other contagious illnesses – working with your primary health provider and/or UMSL Health Services and your instructors to determine academic accommodations during an illness. As always, we encourage everyone to follow the latest COVID guidance on the CDC website.
