Face Covering and Social Distancing Policy for Spring 2022

While keeping a physical distance of at least six feet from other people, practicing good hygiene measures (e.g., frequent hand washing, avoiding touching the face, covering coughs and sneezes), and staying home when ill are the best known protections against COVID-19, wearing a face covering that covers the nose and mouth can help protect others, especially persons who are unvaccinated.

All members of the community are required to wear a mask while indoors on-campus and when occupying a vehicle with another person for work purposes.

Masks must:

  • Completely cover the nose and mouth;
  • Be made with two or more layers of a breathable fabric that is tightly woven, if a cloth mask (i.e., fabrics that do not let light pass through when held up to a light source). Masks that include mesh-like fabrics or other materials or are only one layer of fabric are not acceptable;
  • Include at least 2 layers of protection, if a disposable mask;
  • Be secured to the head with ties, ear loops, or elastic bands that go behind the head. If gaiters are worn, they should have two layers of fabric or be folded to make two layers;
  • Fit snugly over the nose, mouth, and chin with no large gaps on the outside of the face; and
  • Be a solid piece of material without slits, exhalation valves, visible holes, punctures, or other openings.

Acceptable face coverings include clear face coverings or cloth face coverings with a clear plastic panel that, despite the non-cloth material allowing light to pass through, otherwise meet these criteria.

All members of the community are highly encouraged to wear N95 masks or KN95 masks or to wear both a disposable mask under a cloth mask.

This policy applies to all college personnel, students, contractors, and visitors.
