Masks

A mask must be worn at all times in non-private indoor spaces and any crowded outdoor space. Your mask should fit properly, and should cover your nose and mouth at all times (especially when talking!). Cloth masks should have at least three layers, and should ideally have one filtration layer.

More information about masks, kinds of masks, when to wear masks, and more can be found on this WHO site: https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/advice-for-public/when-and-how-to-use-masks

If you forget a mask, masks are available at the University Police Station, on the lower level of the Parking Garage.
