In order to continue following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Indiana Department of Health (IDOH), we are instructing all IU students, employees, and visitors to wear a mask indoors. This time-limited recommendation applies to all IU campuses.
All current students, faculty and staff will use IU’s COVID-19 vaccine report form to attest that they are vaccinated and report all doses of your vaccine. If you’re receiving a two-dose vaccine, you should complete the form after each dose. You’ll need to know the date you received each dose of the vaccine and can upload a photo or scan of documentation that you received your vaccine to be entered in the incentive program. In most cases, this will be a photo or scan of the CDC card you receive at your vaccination appointment that notes the date and type of vaccine you received.
Incoming students should plan to complete the self-report form once they have created their IU email account.
Approved exemptions will be extremely limited to a very narrow set of criteria:
You can request an exemption using the online request form. IU’s Medical Response Team, among other designated IU leaders, will promptly review exemption requests, responding within five business days.
Those exempt from the vaccine requirement or who are in the process of getting vaccinated will continue to participate in COVID Check testing at levels consistent with those at high risk last academic year.
All campuses will continue to offer symptomatic testing and voluntary asymptomatic COVID-19 testing.
COVID Check testing hours:
Tuesdays: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Wednesdays: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Thursdays: 12 noon to 5 p.m.
Testing is available at IU Kokomo, and encouraged for anyone (students, faculty, staff) experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.
Start with IU's symptom checker to schedule a symptomatic test. You'll receive an email with a link to schedule if you have symptoms of COVID-19. All symptomatic testing is held outdoors and is drive up / walk up to ensure safety.
When test results are available, you'll receive an email with next steps.
Symptomatic testing hours:
Monday through Friday: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Same-day appointments available until 1:30 p.m.
