Patrons are urged to stay home if they are sick, and to get tested and follow quarantine guidance by a health professional if they are showing symptoms of COVID-19 or they believe they have been exposed.

Effective March 21, the following indoor mask requirements will be in effect in University-owned facilities:

Masks are still required:

  • In all classroom and instructional laboratory settings
  • In all healthcare settings
  • In all transit settings as required by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). When the FTA requirement is eliminated we will remove this provision.
  • In settings where masks are required due to environmental or hazardous material conditions

Masks are not required:

  • In any dining setting (food courts, residential dining halls, etc.)
  • In common areas (hallways, student unions, study spaces, libraries, recreation facilities, etc.)
  • In all University office workspaces
  • At all sporting events
  • At all entertainment venues
  • At spring commencement events

Individuals may continue to wear masks at any time, and in any location, as a matter of personal protection. As a community, we will continue to respect and honor the choices of all individuals who feel more comfortable wearing a mask, are immunocompromised, or who are taking additional steps to protect their families or others.
