Update to Campus Mask Policy

May 17, 2021

This message was sent from Chancellor Donde Plowman on May 17, 2021, to the campus community.

Consistent with newly updated CDC guidance, fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear masks or social distance on campus, indoors or outdoors. The CDC has outlined limited exceptions, including health care facilities and public transportation. We encourage the campus community to stay up to date on CDC guidance.

The CDC encourages individuals who are not fully vaccinated to continue wearing a mask and distancing for their own protection. Any individual can choose to wear a mask on campus, regardless of their vaccination status.
