Updated Masking Requirement, Effective January 1, 2022
Until 90 percent of the campus community has achieved the full protection of an approved booster, all students, faculty and staff, regardless of vaccination status, will be expected to wear masks indoors on campus, except when alone in private offices, or for students, in residence halls.
Visitors to campus must wear masks at all times indoors on campus until further notice.
