Masking and Social Distancing Policies

Face Masks (On Campus, Outdoors)

Face masks will not be required outdoors for anyone who is fully vaccinated or for anyone who is not fully vaccinated but who can maintain appropriate (minimum 6-feet) physical distancing.

Face Masks (On Campus, Indoors)

General Guidance: With no way to easily or unobtrusively determine who has been fully vaccinated*, the default will remain that all individuals — regardless of vaccination status — must wear face masks while indoors in shared settings including summer classrooms, Student Medical Clinic, Shield Testing (Court 5, Student Rec Center), indoor public spaces and riding the Panther Shuttle. However, the following exceptions exist:**

  • Private Offices and Multi-Person Offices
    Employees are not required to wear face masks when alone in their private office.  Employees in multi-person offices are not required to wear face masks if all people in the workspace are fully vaccinated*.
  • Meetings in Offices and/or Conference Rooms (This does not include ballrooms, auditoriums, classrooms or other large meeting spaces.)
    In cases where all people attending a meeting or gathering in an office or conference room have been fully vaccinated*, face masks will not be required.
  • Research Labs and Shared Academic Spaces (Non-Classroom)
    In cases where all people working in research labs or non-classroom academic spaces have been fully vaccinated*, face masks will not be required.

* Fully vaccinated individuals are two (2) weeks past their second injection (Pfizer or Moderna) or single injection (Johnson & Johnson) vaccinations.

**Declaration of an employee or student being fully vaccinated in these contexts will be based on the honor system. No one should request to see anyone’s vaccination card or other documentation.
