Protect the Nest: COVID-19 Response at Otterbein

The federal government ended the national COVID-19 emergency on May 11. Thank you to our students, faculty, and staff, for keeping our campus community healthy and safe.

Illness Prevention

Otterbein is a mask-friendly campus. We support those who choose to wear a mask or need to wear a mask due to health concerns.

If you are sick, do not come to campus. If you are not feeling well, stay at home and call your doctor if necessary.

Public health officials are recommending that Americans stay up-to-date on COVID boosters and get their annual flu shots. You can get your COVID booster or flu shot at your primary care provider, health clinics, or most pharmacies. You can find the websites, addresses, and phone numbers of local medical providers, clinics, and pharmacies on our Student Health Information page. Call ahead.
