We value your health and safety.  The University will require all university staff, faculty, and visitors to wear face coverings in university spaces indoors, regardless of vaccination status. “Fully vaccinated” means 14 days after their final dose. People who are not fully vaccinated are required to wear a face covering in university spaces indoors, as well as outdoors when they cannot practice social distancing.

If you feel uncomfortable with not wearing a mask outdoors, you are welcome to continue to do so, however it is not required for vaccinated individuals. Children 12 and under are still required to wear a mask under University Guidelines. 

This is subject to change under change of policy, but participants will be notified the day of the event if a change occurs.
