Mask Guidance:

  • Masks are required in all lab and clinical activities.
  • Masks are encouraged in all other settings when distancing is not possible.
  • We will continue to monitor COVID-19 Community Impact Levels and cases on our campuses and adjust our protocols accordingly.

We strongly encourage our campus community to also observe these additional precautions:

  • Please plan to carry a mask with you when you’re on campus.
  • Minimize your time unmasked when around other people.
  • Schedule meetings and gatherings in rooms large enough to accommodate social distancing.
  • Consider wearing a mask while indoors in off-campus settings.
  • Remain up-to-date with COVID-19 vaccines and boosters.
  • Stay home and avoid contact with others if you are sick.
  • Keep a supply of at-home COVID tests on hand in your home. You may order up to eight free tests here

  • The libraries at each campus have a limited supply of rapid antigen tests that you can sign out.
