(Cleveland, OH) - Beginning Monday, Cleveland State University is requiring masks on campus regardless of vaccination status. In addition, the university strongly recommends that people who are not vaccinated wear masks outdoors when they cannot maintain physical distancing.
People will have to wear them at all times if they are inside buildings. The mandate applies to visitors, students, and faculty.
Masks are to be worn by unvaccinated people outside if social distancing isn't possible.
Exceptions to the mask rule apply in the following situations:
- When actively eating in a dining hall
- When a student is alone in their residence hall room with their roommate(s). (Students are expected to wear masks in common areas.)
- When a faculty or staff member is working alone in a private office or outdoors.
- When a student, faculty, or staff member has been granted a medical or religious accommodation to not wear a mask, that has been approved in writing by the appropriate university officials.
The university will continue to test at least five percent of the student population every week to identify potential outbreaks.
Testing is free for all students, faculty, and staff.
