The University of Missouri has temporarily reinstated our indoor masking requirements for the start of the fall 2021 semester:

As of Aug. 2, all students, faculty, staff and visitors, regardless of vaccination status, will be required to wear a mask in classrooms, as well as meeting spaces where social distancing is not possible.

For the remaining indoor spaces on campus, if you are not fully vaccinated, you are required to wear a mask. Even if you are fully vaccinated, the university recommends wearing a mask in these other indoor spaces, which is aligned with latest CDC recommendations.

This temporary requirement will be reviewed by Sept. 15.
