New guidelines for face coverings

With the new guidance on face coverings provided by the CDC, OLLU will no longer require face coverings in any outdoor spaces for individuals who are vaccinated. People who have not received the vaccine can go without a face covering outdoors if they are able to maintain a physical distance of at least six feet.

Everyone still must wear face coverings indoors in common spaces such as hallways, restrooms, etc. The university will phase out the use of face coverings for vaccinated individuals indoors as we develop a better understanding of vaccination rates on campus. The goal will be to phase out face coverings for vaccinated individuals by or before Sept. 1, 2021.

Anyone who feels more comfortable wearing a face covering should feel free to do so. In addition, those who have not been vaccinated should continue to wear a face covering when they cannot be isolated from others.
