Face Mask Policy

We encourage – but do not require – everyone to carry masks at all times on campus and use their best judgment on when it’s appropriate to wear a mask. For people who have special health concerns or want a higher level of protection, a well-fitted KN95 mask offers good protection for the user and is significantly better than cloth and disposable surgical masks. We have a good supply of masks which you can order here.

The university will no longer require unvaccinated people to wear masks at all times and undergo regular surveillance testing. We strongly encourage everyone to carry masks at all times on campus and use their best judgment on when it’s appropriate to wear one. Please take responsibility for protecting others. If a fellow student or a co-worker asks you to wear a mask, please consider doing so.

Face masks. A face mask must be multilayered, fit snugly against the sides of the face and under the chin without gaps, and completely cover the nose and mouth. It is preferable to have a moldable nose piece and adjustable ear straps to ensure a snug fit. Among the face coverings that are not acceptable under the updated policy are masks made of single-layer material, gaiters, masks with valves, bandanas or any other face covering that does not fit properly and leaves gaps.
