BREAKING NEWS: The University moves to a mask-optional status for all students who are fully vaccinated, including the booster shot. This decision was made because of recommendations by the CDC, the decreased level of transmissibility in the immediate surrounding area, the low level of COVID-19 positive cases on campus over the past few weeks and the high level of fully vaccinated and boosted individuals on campus.
In the past week there were no positive cases on campus and two new cases over the past three weeks.
Faculty will be able to require enrolled students to wear their mask and refrain from eating and drinking in classrooms. They will be able to dismiss students who do not follow their requirements.
