Masks Policy

The University continues to monitor closely the evolving understanding of COVID-19 by health and medical experts and will adapt its policies and procedures as appropriate as new information becomes available.

Cloth masks, like the ones issued to each member of the Notre Dame community, are useful in drastically limiting the wearer’s potential to spread infection. Each member of the Notre Dame community, and visitors to campus, should abide by the following protocol:

  • For those who are fully vaccinated, masking is optional on campus indoors and outdoors. 
    • Employees who have not provided the University with proof of vaccination, including those who have been granted an exemption, are expected to continue to mask indoors. 
  • Visitors who are unvaccinated are expected to mask while on campus.

Respect the choices of students, faculty, staff and visitors who are masked, and avoid making assumptions.
