We recognize, as a campus community, that there will be individuals who continue using face coverings for a wide range of reasons. We will continue to honor those who wear face coverings regardless of their reasoning. Indeed, we hope our community will consider masks to be a simple but valuable tool going forward when experiencing symptoms of any contagious illness. As always, we will continue to watch local, state, and global trends with a close eye. We will be ready to adapt if the need arises.
