Campus updates

Latest from Mizzou

MU Incident provides an update on mask requirements after Oct. 15, 2021.

The University of Missouri Board of Curators voted to extend the university’s temporary mask mandates through Oct. 15.

MU Incident Command reminds the campus community to stay vigilant and reiterates the university’s temporary indoor masking policy.

MU Incident Command shares updated campus policies regarding temporary changes to indoor masking policy and information about getting vaccinated and logging your status.

Updates to Renewal Site

Updated weekend hours for MU Health Care COVID-19 test collection site.


Mizzou’s temporary indoor masking mandate will expire after Oct. 15.

While masks are no longer required after Oct.15, we ask that everyone — regardless of their vaccination status — wear masks in all indoor spaces, especially when social distancing is not possible.

MU’s mask guidance now aligns with the latest Boone County public health advisory and CDC guidance, which both recommend masking indoors, regardless of vaccination status.

Face coverings

Starting this Saturday, Oct. 16, the MU Health Care COVID-19 test collection site will be open 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturdays.
