Masks are optional outdoors for all individuals and at outdoor events where social distancing can be observed.
Due to the ever-evolving nature of the pandemic as well as new CDC guidelines, all persons (regardless of vaccination status) will wear masks while indoors in ALL non-residential campus buildings, unless in the following situations:
- Faculty or employees working alone in one’s office
- Students working alone in an enclosed space (e.g., studying in a classroom alone)
- Faculty, employees, or students eating in dining areas
- Athletics personnel and student-athletes when engaging in team-related activities (i.e., NCAA guidelines will be followed in these situations, which will be monitored by Athletics).
In general, face shields are not acceptable as a replacement for face coverings for general campus use. (Medical documentation of the need to use a shield or an alternative face covering is required.)
