Face masks: Beginning March 21, face masks are required in all classroom and instructional spaces and healthcare spaces as required by federal guidelines. Face masks will no longer be required in other University buildings or venues, however, planetarium staff kindly request all guests continue to wear a mask while in the planetarium. As part of our overall prevention and wellbeing strategy, this step can maximize protection from the virus and prevent possibly spreading it to others.
