Prevent the spread of COVID-19
People come first at East Tennessee State University. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, ETSU has continued to safeguard the health of our students, faculty, staff, and community.
Vaccines are widely available and encouraged. ETSU Health continues to offer several opportunities for members of the community who are 18 and older to receive the free, one-dose Janssen Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine through Community COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics.

Face coverings are encouraged indoors and in outdoor settings when physical distancing is not possible to prevent the infection and spread of COVID-19. Please remember that everyone’s health situation is unique. All students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to be respectful of individual decisions regarding masking.
