When you’re in class

If you enroll in a face-to-face course, you will be expected to attend in-person unless you are experiencing COVID-related symptoms, are in quarantine or isolation, or have an otherwise appropriate reason for not attending in-person (e.g., a non-COVID illness).  

The university’s temporary indoor masking mandate expired Oct. 15. Our requirements will be replaced with an expectation that everyone remains vigilant in protecting themselves and others against COVID-19.

While masks are no longer required, we ask that everyone — regardless of their vaccination status — wear masks indoors, especially when social distancing is not possible.

With this change, MU’s mask guidance comes into alignment with the latest Boone County public health advisory and CDC guidance, which both include recommendations for indoor masking. University facilities and operations in other parts of the state will follow local public health guidance.

Some units across campus, including MU Health Care, the School of Medicine, School of Nursing, School of Health Professions and certain facilities in the College of Veterinary Medicine, may continue to have requirements that are specific to their units.

A professor, an event coordinator, a supervisor, a colleague or a student may ask or recommend that individuals or groups wear masks, but they cannot require it or penalize those who choose not to do so.

If you have a medical condition that requires an accommodation, contact the Disability Center. The center is committed to helping students be successful at Mizzou. Resources and contact information are available on the center’s website.

See our face covering page for more information.

If you are experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID, please contact your health care provider and do not attend class.  

If you cannot attend your in-person class because you are ill, in quarantine, etc., please contact your instructor to make alternative arrangements to engage in the course content.
