Based on the CDC recommendation, the Task Force has determined that face masks or face coveringsthat fit appropriately — must be worn by all employees and students on campus. Employees DO NOT have to wear a mask if they are in their office alone; however, everyone who comes to campus must have a mask in their possession at all times. Students DO NOT have to wear a mask if they are in their residence hall room, but must have a mask in their possession at all times.

You must wear a mask as you walk across campus, go to another location or to your vehicle, while you are picking up your meal from any campus dining outlet, or any other activity that may cause you to cross paths with other individuals.

Universal masking, combined with physical distancing and hand washing, is effective in reducing the viral transmission from the mask wearer to others.

These recommendations and requirements will be updated as new information about the virus develops and we monitor and evaluate data. (last updated July 1, 2020)
