Pace announced Thursday morning that the COVID-19 Alert Level will move to Green on all campuses effective Monday, March 7 in an email addressed to the community from Brian Anderson Executive Director of Emergency Management and Environmental Health and Safety.

According to Anderson, “We will relax our COVID-19 protocols, although some measures will remain in place. Vaccine and booster requirements will also remain in place.”

As of Monday, masks will be optional in most places on Pace campuses, but members of the community are still required to wear masks in the classroom.

Community testing will be no longer required for most of the Pace Community, except for those exempt from the vaccine requirement. Daily health screening via the PaceSafe app is no longer required, and Event capacity restrictions are lifted.

Lastly, visitor access to the campuses is restored. Visitors will still be required to provide proof of vaccination or a recent negative test upon arrival.

For the first time in nearly 2 years, the Pace community can get back to a feeling of normalcy.

“We are able to make these changes now because of the impressive diligence shown by our community in adhering to guidelines, being careful, and protecting one another,” wrote Anderson.
