We are committed to creating that Muskingum University community we hold dear. To do that, we have implemented several COVID-19 mitigation strategies this academic year.

Face masks must be worn in all shared indoor spaces on campus.

Fully vaccinated individuals are not required to quarantine if identified through contact tracing as exposed to someone who has COVID-19, as long as they have no symptoms. They also are not required to participate in COVID-19 surveillance testing.

Please review the COVID-19 Policies, which are designed to protect the health and safety of the campus community.

Fall Semester (Academics and Residential Living)

Muskingum University remains committed to the health and well-being of our entire campus community. We have carefully created policies using the latest guidance from the CDC, Ohio Department of Health, and the Zanesville-Muskingum County Health Department (ZMCHD) to ensure the safety of students and employees. Should guidance from these sources change, our policies will be revised as appropriate.The University also is evaluating its classroom and lab spaces to ensure compliance with relevant health guidelines.  The Fall 2021 academic calendar is available for download here.


These policies were developed in accordance with guidance from the state, federal and local health authorities and may be adjusted as guidance changes. If you have any questions for specific University departments around these policies, please contact:
