COVID-19 Information and Updates

The CDC is recommending that all persons wear masks while indoors in public spaces and when in a county which has a “substantial” or “high” rate of COVID-19 transmission. The recommendation applies to both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals.

Oakland County is currently rated at the “high“ risk level by the CDC. Walsh protocols to access the Troy campus are below:

  • All individuals are required to wear a mask while inside Walsh facilities. Masks are available at the check-in desk, if needed.
  • Students, faculty, and employees are asked to self-monitor for symptoms and stay home if there is any cause for concern. Completion of the health screening form is not required.
  • Six-foot social distancing is encouraged, but not required.
  • If alone in a closed office, classroom, or study room, a mask is not required.
  • Masks are not required outdoors.

We will continue monitoring Oakland County risk levels and transmission rates and make adjustments based on the risk status, as needed.
