Face masks


The university has implemented a temporary face mask requirement. The requirement will be rescinded for each campus when the host county is no longer in high or substantial transmission status according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data tracker.

Everyone must wear face masks over their mouths and noses in all indoor spaces on university property unless alone in their own private offices or workspaces.

Unvaccinated students, faculty and staff who can receive the COVID-19 vaccine are strongly encouraged to do so.

The guidance is based on information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
