Will classes be held in rooms at full capacity?
Classes are scheduled at their pre-COVID capacities for fall 2021.
Will students be required to wear masks in class?
Yes, the university has an indoor face-covering requirement, including classroom spaces, for all individuals. The face-covering requirement will continue to follow CDC and other public health authority sector guidance for higher education and will be based on public health indicators, including campus vaccination rates, campus case rates, community case rates, CDC transmission rates, and hospitalization data.
Can an instructor teach in-person classes without a mask if they can maintain at least 6 feet of distance from the students?
Yes, a fully vaccinated instructor who is at least 6 feet away from an audience can remove their mask when all others in the room are masked. If the room cannot accommodate 6-foot distancing between an instructor and students, the instructor must remain masked.
