Our commitment to each other
Mizzou’s temporary indoor masking mandate expired after 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.
See our face covering guidance for more information.
If you are immunocompromised or have a weakened immune system, it is recommended that you continue to socially distance and wear a mask when in close contact with others you do not live with or interact with on a regular basis, even if fully vaccinated.
All MU community members:
- Vaccination is now readily available to the vast majority of the general public in Missouri and is an important step in reducing the spread of COVID-19.
- Individuals who live, work, learn or visit the university will not be asked about their vaccination status.
- If you have a medical condition that requires an accommodation, students can contact the Disability Center, and employees can contact the Office of Accessibility and ADA.
- All Mizzou community members should continue to monitor symptoms daily, practice hand hygiene and stay home if ill.
