Face coverings are required in all buildings on campus.

Face Covering

Cloth masks may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others. Wearing a cloth mask is required when inside a building or space open to the public, or when in an outdoor public space, wherever it is not feasible to maintain six feet of social distancing.

All students, staff and faculty who will be on campus will receive a mask as supplies last.
