    • It is also still recommended that individuals avoid large outside crowds where social distancing is not possible.
    • Face coverings and social distancing are still required while indoors on campus.
    • Whenever a face covering is required, it must always be kept over your mouth and nose.
    • Updated face covering information, exceptions and situation-specific guidance can be found on the face coverings page.
