We’ve implemented a number of policies and procedures for our UM System employees and our MU students, faculty and staff aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19. Our guiding principle is to promote and support the safety of the entire MU community. We are closely monitoring public health guidelines and have developed protocols and behaviors individuals can follow to keep themselves and others safe.
In light of new guidance from both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and our local Boone County public health officials, wearing face coverings outside is no longer required on campus, although it is still encouraged that you use a face covering if you are within 6 feet of someone you do not live with, particularly if you are not vaccinated and if you are with that individual for 15 minutes or longer. It is also still recommended that individuals avoid large outside crowds where social distancing is not possible.
