Campus Update

Issued: Thursday, July 2, 2020
Time: 5:15 p.m.



Please be aware that earlier today Governor Abbott issued an order effective tomorrow at 12pm that requires face masks be worn in counties with more than 20 COVID-19 cases. In compliance with this order, you must wear a face mask when on Lamar University’s campus, unless one of the following exceptions is met:

  • Have certain health conditions that prevent wearing a mask
  • While consuming food or drink
  • Are outside where six feet of social distancing is possible
  • Under the age of 10 years old

The governor’s order states that violators could face up to $250 in fines. Individuals not wearing a face mask when required may receive a written or verbal warning for their first violation.

Please plan accordingly for these new requirements and share with employees and co-workers.
