COVID-19 Health & Safety

  • UMBC’s Public Health Dashboard was updated with new data on September 16. The dashboard provides timely data about the prevalence of COVID-19 within our main campus, based on UMBC’s on-campus testing and reported results from off-campus testing among UMBC faculty, staff, and students who are approved to be on campus this fall. The latest update includes both new data (primarily from post-Labor Day testing of residential students) and cumulative data.
  • Please review this revised COVID-19-Related Class Absences guidance.

Protect Yourself with a Seasonal Flu Shot

  • As influenza (flu) season quickly approaches, it is important to take precautions to prevent the spread of influenza. Please take time to familiarize yourself with the CDC guidance on Seasonal Influenza Prevention and VaccinationGetting a flu vaccination is particularly important this year. It will help reduce the number of preventable hospitalizations related to flu, which will, in turn, support our nation's medical community in ensuring that persons impacted by COVID-19 receive adequate and timely medical care. It is possible to have both COVID-19 and influenza. Getting a flu vaccine helps to protect individuals, their households, and their communities from the spread of seasonal flu.
