 Face Covering Guidance

All campus community members must wear face coverings in the following situations while on University property and/or when participating in any University-related activities:

  • If you are less than 6 feet away from another person;
  • Inside any building unless alone in a workspace;
  • Outside if in a high pedestrian traffic area (consistently maintaining 6 foot distance isn't feasible);
  • In common areas (inside and outside) in Housing;
  • In a vehicle with a passenger (prohibited unless exempted under the campus vehicle procedures);
  • In an open vehicle in a high pedestrian traffic area (consistently maintaining 6 foot distance isn't feasible)

Improving the effectiveness of face coverings:

  • The most important factors for effective face coverings are having a mask with multiple layers, wearing it correctly, and achieving a tight fit.
  • If you are using a surgical mask, you can improve the fit by layering a cloth face covering on top (double masking), installing a mask fitter, or knotting, folding, and tucking the mask.
  • The CDC provides information regarding improving mask fit and how to effectively use masks.
