Face Mask Policy

Indoors: Masks are required indoors at all times for faculty, staff, students, and visitors, with the following exceptions:

  • When students are inside their own rooms in a residential college.
  • When faculty, staff, and students are alone inside a private office.
  • Faculty lecturing in a classroom are advised, but not required, to wear a mask. If they’re not masked, instructors must maintain a distance of at least 10 feet between themselves and their students. Unvaccinated instructors must wear a mask at all times.

Outdoors: Masks are not required outdoors.

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.
