Face masks are defined as a face covering that covers both the nose and mouth. Face shields, defined as a plastic barrier covering the length of one's face, do not fulfill the college’s mask mandate by themselves, and are only deemed acceptable when a proper face mask is worn underneath.
Any vaccinated individual who is more comfortable wearing a mask on campus should do so. No assumptions should be made regarding anyone wearing a mask.
Mask use for those who are not fully vaccinated and have been granted temporary exemption must continue until full vaccination has been achieved (2 weeks beyond the last required COVID-19 vaccination shot).
The situation surrounding COVID-19 remains fluid. Policies may be changed as warranted.
