Can I continue wearing a mask if I prefer?
Yes. All members of the campus community may choose to wear or not wear face coverings. Please respect the choices and privacy of your fellow Falcons.
I’m an instructor, can I encourage or require masks in my classroom?
Instructors may not require students to wear masks in their classroom. They may suggest that students consider wearing them for certain activities, but this should not go beyond suggestions.
May individual departments require masks in their department suites/open spaces?
No. The chancellor's decision to remove the requirement to wear face coverings applies to all campus buildings, conference rooms, and shared spaces.
May employees require masks in their private unshared offices?
Yes. Employees who choose to require masks in their private unshared offices should proactively communicate the need to wear a face covering to those with whom they are scheduling in-person meetings. A virtual option must be provided.
If I continue to see members of the campus community wearing face coverings, should or may I ask them why they are wearing a mask or inform them that the requirement to wear face coverings has expired?
No. It is not appropriate to ask why someone is or is not wearing a mask. Please respect the choices and privacy of your fellow Falcons.
