What do I need to know about face coverings and masks?
Everyone on our campuses (faculty, staff, students, visitors, and others) is required to wear a face covering or mask in the following indoor and outdoor settings.
Wear a face covering or mask, unless in a secluded location such as a personal office space with the door closed or a residence hall room.
Exceptions* to this requirement include the following:
- Medical condition
- Speaking with those who are hard of hearing
- Instructors lecturing in situations where wearing a mask would make them inaudible
*In these instances, a face shield must be worn. Employees who are unable to wear a face covering or face shield should be referred to the university’s ADA and Accessibility Services office.
Wear a face covering or mask when physical distancing cannot be maintained.
For further information on face coverings and masks for students, employees, instructors, and researchers, and about departments ordering face coverings, visit our health page.
