The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently issued new guidance regarding the use of cloth face coverings. Individuals are now strongly encouraged to wear a face covering when they are making unavoidable visits to public locations, especially where maintaining at least six feet of physical distance between themselves and others may not be possible.
The College’s COVID-19 Institutional Response Team (IRT) is writing to share how this new guidance will affect some of those individuals who are still performing essential functions on campus, and to encourage all members of the campus community to follow the CDC’s new guidance regarding face coverings. Please be advised that you may see individuals—particularly those in Campus Safety, Residence Life, Food Service, and Operations—wearing a face covering when interacting closely with others as part of their work.
The IRT appreciates your cooperation with the CDC’s new guidance and your ongoing commitment to each other’s health and well-being, within the campus community and throughout the broader community. Below are some helpful CDC links.
Best wishes for the remainder of the Spring Semester!
