Dear Members of the TC Community,

We hope you are enjoying the spring semester and the increasingly warm weather. We are writing to let you know TC continues to be “Mask Mindful,” despite recent changes to the mask guidelines at CU. In essence, this means that masks continue to be optional for vaccinated individuals.

The Covid-19 Working Group is closely monitoring New York City data on positive cases, hospitalizations and deaths. TC will reinstate a mandatory masking policy if the city’s seven-day averages reach or exceed a combined positivity rate of 5%, 180 hospitalizations and 10 confirmed deaths. Though positivity rates are trending upward, hospitalizations and deaths are trending downward, and we are hopeful these trends will continue. However, if the city reaches all three of these benchmarks, we will immediately update you on our revised mask guidance.

Keeping Campus Healthy and Respectful

  • Upload your proof of COVID-19 booster shot by May 23, if you have not already done so.
  • Continue to complete the Daily Health Screening each day you plan to access campus, as well as to report any COVID-19 symptoms or positive test results.
  • Continue to comply with the weekly Random Testing Program, if you are selected for testing.
  • Caring for one another’s physical, mental and emotional wellbeing is a core TC community value. It is vital that you respect any individual who chooses to wear a mask without questioning their decision.
