Changing Mask Requirements at UT Knoxville

Things are changing quickly related to state and federal laws dictating mask and vaccine requirements and prohibitions. Despite our very low COVID-19 numbers on campus, we are working to maintain compliance with applicable laws.

As things currently stand, to maintain compliance with federal Executive Order 14042 we must put a mask requirement back in place for most UT Knoxville buildings, which we plan to do effective Monday, November 22.
