On Thursday, Mar. 11, at 7:00 a.m., the University of Pittsburgh’s Pittsburgh campus will move from Elevated to Guarded Risk Posture. This decision, which is based on the recommendations of the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and the Healthcare Advisory Group (HCAG), is dependent on the continuation of low, stable case numbers and strong compliance with health and safety rules next week.

Many requirements and guidance remain in place in Guarded Risk Posture. Members of the University community must continue:  

  • Wearing face coverings, indoors and out, with very few exceptions.
  • Maintaining a proper physical distance of 6 feet or more from others.  
  • Washing or sanitizing hands frequently
  • Minimizing the number of close contacts outside of roommates, pods and households.

Assuming there are no significant changes in conditions, the Pittsburgh campus will be in Guarded Risk Posture as of Thursday Mar. 11, 2021.
