Masking is no longer required, except in healthcare settings (e.g. Student Health Center, Dental Practice).

Those who have recently been infected with COVID-19 or had a recent exposure should follow public health guidance on mask wearing.


Mask-Wearing Is Welcomed

Though there is no longer a universal mask mandate, many in our community will make an individual choice to continue to wear masks. Consistently wearing a comfortable, well-fitting face mask can help protect you from infection.

As a community, we embrace the choice by friends, classmates, and colleagues to wear a mask and are committed to establishing an atmosphere where masks are always welcomed.

No one can be required to remove a mask if they wish to wear one, nor can event hosts, faculty, supervisors, and others require masking within a specific space (e.g., an event, classroom, meeting, or workspace).


High Quality Masks

Some masks offer higher levels of protection than others. Higher quality masks include:

  • Disposable masks (surgical or medical procedure masks)
  • KN95 masks
  • KF94 masks
  • N95 masks
