“Mask Policy Update, Monday, March 28” letter to the Beloit community

To the community,

We are following up with you to let you know that based on the health of our community post-break, masks will be optional in indoor spaces on campus for students, faculty, staff and emeriti faculty and staff, effective Monday, March 28.

Some details:

  • Students, faculty, staff, and emeriti faculty and staff will no longer be required to wear masks indoors on campus.
  • Faculty and staff may request that masks be worn in their individual workspaces or classrooms.
  • Students may also request that masks be worn in their private living spaces.
  • 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.

We understand that not everyone has the same level of health or comfort, so you are welcome to wear a mask whenever you feel inclined.

A limited supply of masks will be available in several locations across campus including the Security Office and academic building coordinator offices.

We encourage everyone on campus to respect the wishes of others regarding mask-wearing and keep a mask on them at all times, so when you encounter a situation where you need a mask, you have one.

We have come together as a community throughout the pandemic, upholding our mantra of “self-care is community care.” We thank you for continuing to follow these practices.

As we have done since the beginning of the pandemic, we will continue to monitor the overall COVID rates on campus, throughout the local community, and nationally, and we will continue to adjust guidelines as needed. Remember to go to our Beloit COVID-19 Plan page for more details.

Be well,
The COVID-19 Task Force
