Face Covering Policy

Face Covering Policy

updated 3/25/22

As COVID-19 case numbers have remained steady and low, we are comfortable with continuing to ease campus mask requirements. As of March 28, face masks are recommended, but no longer required in classrooms, except if requested by the instructor. Masks continue to be required in the following situations:

  • In classrooms, if requested by the instructor.
  • Medical and clinical settings, including Health Services and Counseling Services.
  • University events where required by contract with speakers, performers, etc.
  • In the BUPD Safety Cruiser and other campus transportation services.
  • In a private office or residence hall room, if requested by the occupant.

Please continue to be respectful of those who are high risk or have family members who are high risk; they may choose to continue wearing masks or ask you to wear them in their offices or classrooms. Let’s carry on the Bradley spirit and support others. Individuals should be comfortable wearing a mask and be free from pressures or harassment.

There are N95 masks available at the Markin Center control desk, Student Center info desk, Bradley Health Services, Bradley Bookstore, and the library. Masks are available during regular business hours, which vary by location, while supplies last.

Residential Living Guidelines

Students residing on-campus must continue to follow university guidelines and do not need to wear a mask when in their private residence. However, all on-campus residential students are asked to wear a mask in the common areas inside their residential location.

Masks are required in the OLLI and Safety Cruiser vans.

Guidance for putting on a face mask (reusable or disposable)

  • Wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds, or use hand sanitizer before handling the face covering.
  • Ensure the mask fits over your nose and under your chin, and secure it in place.
  • Avoid touching your face or any part of the mask while wearing it.

Guidance for taking off a face mask (reusable or disposable)

  • Avoid touching your face, including your eyes, nose or mouth, when removing the face covering. To do this, pull the mask away from the ears or untie the straps.
  • Wash your hands immediately after removing the face mask.

Guidance for storing, cleaning and caring for a face mask (reusable)

  • Keep masks stored in a bag when not in use.
  • Don’t use disposable masks for more than one day or if the mask becomes soiled, damaged or visibly contaminated. Clean your mask (use regular clothing detergent) after each use. Place disposable masks in the trash when you finish working.
