Subject: Health Advisory: Mask Requirement
As you may know, yesterday the CDC issued new guidance regarding the wearing of masks. We are reviewing that guidance and awaiting further information from the State of NJ to see if the requirement will change in NJ. In addition, it is not yet clear if this guidance applies to classrooms.
At this time, Stevens is maintaining its requirement that masks must be worn indoors and outdoors when on campus and at Stevens-sponsored events off campus, except when eating or drinking. As more students, faculty and staff are fully vaccinated and when we hear more from the State of NJ, we will consider changing this requirement.
We encourage you to be vaccinated as soon as possible and to take all precautions to mitigate the spread of the virus. While COVID-19 cases are down, we must still be vigilant.
Thank you for your attention to this important matter.
