Change to mask policy after spring break

After much consideration, taking into account current conditions and the recommendations of the CDC, we have decided that effective the week of March 28, masks will be optional in indoor spaces on campus for students, faculty, staff and emeriti faculty and staff.

Planned timeline

  • March 21-23: The on-campus Testing Center is open to all students who desire to test following spring break. Testing is not a requirement for returning to campus.
    • Students, faculty and staff who are not fully vaccinated and boosted (if eligible) will continue to be required to complete weekly testing.
  • March 21-26: The Task Force will evaluate our local situation, available test results and current CDC guidelines.
  • March 28: The updated Mask Policy listed below goes into effect:

Updated Mask Policy

  • Students, faculty, staff and emeriti faculty and staff will not be required to wear masks indoors. We will respect the right of any individual who wishes to wear a mask to do so in any setting.

  • All campus visitors, regardless of their vaccination status, will be required to wear a mask while in indoor spaces on campus, except when eating or drinking.

  • Occupants or users of offices, meeting rooms, department spaces, or classrooms may require that masks be worn by all in attendance while they are using that space.

  • Everyone on campus is required to carry a mask that can be put on when necessary or requested. A limited supply of masks will be available in several locations across campus including the Security Office and academic building coordinator offices.
