Salisbury University announced today masks are no longer required outside classroom settings, effective Feb. 18 at 3 p.m. While in classrooms, Guerrieri Academic Commons and Holloway Hall, students are still required to wear KN95, KF94 or N95 masks, according to a school-wide email.
Masks will no longer be required in the following areas, unless requested otherwise:
- Residence Halls
- Meeting and conference rooms
- Dining Commons
- Guerrieri Student Union
- East Campus facilities
- SU Downtown
- Faculty and staff offices
The decision followed the University System of Maryland's statement on Feb. 14, working to reduce COVID-19 restrictions on the state's college campuses, according to the email.
The SU community is encouraged to respect those who still choose to wear masks, wearing one if requested.
