COVID-19 Health & Safety
- UMBC’s Public Health Dashboard was updated with new data on February 24. There were five new positive on-campus cases during this reporting period. The campus positivity rate is 0.2 percent and we currently have no residential students in quarantine or isolation. We are so grateful for our community’s commitment to health and safety.

Testing and Tracking during Spring Break
- Testing groups will receive specific instructions for spring break via myUMBC. In general, if you will be on campus during the break (residential students, researchers, etc.) you should continue to test. Testing requirements are waived for individuals who will not be on campus during the break. All community members who are approved to be on campus must continue to symptom track the entirety of the break.

- The Governor’s emergency order requiring Marylanders to limit all travel to essential purposes only remains in effect.

This applies to travel to/from all states/territories except Delaware, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington, D.C.
