Face Covering Requirements

On June 18, 2020, Gov. Gavin Newsom issued an executive order requiring everyone, with limited exceptions, to wear a face covering in all public areas, including common areas, indoor spaces, and outdoors when six (6) feet of distancing is not possible.

Our campus is a public area, and the expectation is that our Hornet Family will abide by this public health mandate and keep one another as safe as possible. That means wearing a face covering when you are on campus.

A face covering that covers the nose and mouth helps reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), especially when combined with physical distancing and frequent hand washing. The use of a face covering limits the release of infected droplets when talking, coughing, or sneezing.

Our University is an extended community of caring individuals, and wearing a face covering when on campus is an expression of care for your fellow Hornets and says you will do what it takes to keep everyone as safe as possible during these unusual and difficult times.
