Working in the office

Mask information

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

If you have a medical condition that requires an accommodation, you can contact the Office of Accessibility and ADA.

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.

  • The university encourages all members of the MU community to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
  • Employees should not be asked about their vaccination status, but they may choose to volunteer it.
  • Log your vaccine to help Mizzou make informed decisions.


If event space and group size do not allow people to distance, it may still be prudent to hold meetings via Zoom. For in-person meetings, using a space that allows for social distancing is ideal. If not possible, the university’s standing request for masking indoors would apply to such meetings.

Depending on the weather and the needs of your office, outdoor meetings may be an option. Be sure outdoor meeting spaces are readily acceptable for all team members who will attend in person.


Please use campus-approved signage when needed for the workplace. Your division’s communications staff member may email a request for additional signage that currently is not available.
