In order to reduce the transmission of COVID‑19, individuals should wear a mask or other face covering while in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high transmission. Such guidance applies to both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals.
Consistent with this CDC guidance, the university is implementing the temporary masking policy in order to prevent and/or slow the spread of COVID‑19 among university community members.
This policy is effective for all campus locations as of August 22, 2021.
The policy applies to faculty, staff, students and visitors, and requires all such individuals to wear masks covering their mouth and nose.
Masks are required to be worn in all buildings on campus, including in hallways, elevators, stairwells, classrooms, restrooms, study areas, departmental suites, conference rooms and other common areas.
For the safety of both patients and providers, Magers Health and Wellness Center is a facility which requires masks to be worn now, prior to the new policy start date.
