Ensuring the health, safety and well-being of all members of our community is our top priority. While we cannot completely eliminate risk, we can do everything we can to mitigate it. 

Masks or face coverings are required unless individuals are alone in a room, alone outside, eating, drinking, or exercising or when it interferes with required curricular activities.

Protect. Respect. Do your part to stay safe and prevent the spread. All members of our campus community are required to maintain good personal hygiene.

Mask Up.

Masks or face coverings are critical to a successful fall. You can have the virus without having symptoms. Look out for others by wearing a mask or face covering in public.

Masks or face coverings should:

  • Cover mouth and nose
  • Fit snugly but comfortably
  • Be secured with ties or ear loops
  • Be made of multiple layers of fabric
  • Allow for breathing without restriction
  • Be able to be laundered and machine dried without damage or change to shape

To safely remove, grasp the mask by the ties or ear loops, and be careful not to touch eyes, nose, and mouth. Wash your face covering in a washing machine after each use, and wash your hands after removing from your face.
