Everyone must wear a facial covering sufficient to cover the nose and mouth at all times — both inside and outside of buildings. Masks are the most common facial covering.
Wear your mask correctly
- The mask should cover your nose and mouth and be secured under your chin.
- Don’t put the mask around your neck or up on your forehead.
- Don’t touch the mask, but if you do, wash your hands or use hand sanitizer.
Remove mask carefully when you get home
- Handle mask only by the ear loops or ties.
- Be careful not to touch your eyes, nose or mouth when removing and wash hands immediately after.
Wash mask after each use
- Wash mask with your regular laundry or hand wash in water.
- Hang to dry and do not iron.
How to Wear a Fabric Mask
Exceptions include: While eating or drinking, if working outdoors during hot and humid conditions, or when alone in a private space, such as an office, assigned residence hall room, or enclosed vehicle. When outdoors, facial coverings are expected to be worn whenever physical distancing of 6 feet or more cannot be maintained, such as on sidewalks and in other similarly crowded or rapidly changing circumstances.
If you cannot wear a facial covering due to a medical condition, please contact either the Office of Disability Resources (students) or HR Disability Services (employees) to request an exemption as an accommodation. Individuals who are granted a medical exemption from wearing facial coverings are expected to access university programs, activities, and courses remotely or through other contactless methods (e.g. pick-up / delivery) whenever reasonably possible.
