Face Masks and Coverings
As we continue to plan for the Fall 2021 semester, we want to remind everyone, regardless of vaccination status, that face masks are to be worn while indoors. This includes going into Scott/Dozier Cafeteria. This practice will help ensure community safety in our ongoing fight to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

  • Masks are to be worn while indoors. Once we have community vaccination data, we will revisit the indoor mask requirement for vaccinated employees. 
  • All members of the community that are vaccinated do not have to wear masks while outside unless required to do so in a crowded setting or venue. 
  • Note: It is not appropriate to ask anyone about their vaccination status.
