Face Coverings and Face Masks
Those who are fully vaccinated no longer are required to wear masks in most indoor spaces or outdoors when on-campus. Anyone who is not fully vaccinated, regardless of the reason, is required to continue masking indoors, in alignment with guidance from the public health agencies.
While masks are no longer required for those who are vaccinated, many will choose to continue wearing a mask for their own personal comfort, and the community is expected to support their choices.
When Masks are Required
Masks are required regardless of vaccination status in all University health facilities—including Health Service offices, testing sites and vaccination sites—and on campus shuttles, in alignment with public health guidance. Individuals in leased space, patient-facing areas or clinical buildings should refer to local guidance regarding indoor masking policies, as they may differ from University-owned buildings.
There also may be indoor campus events during which masks will be required of everyone, regardless of vaccination status. We will make informed decisions about any such requirements as we monitor campus and local health trends and adjust policies where appropriate.
