May 17: Update on Mask Requirement

Dear Colleagues,

In accordance with the latest updates from the CDC and MDH, wearing a mask is no longer required on campus (indoors or outdoors) if you have been fully vaccinated. Fully vaccinated is considered to be 14 days after the final dosage of the vaccine. For individuals not vaccinated, please continue to wear a mask indoors and outdoors when social distancing cannot be maintained. In addition, supervisors are advised to review industry standards for their area (e.g. public transit - the LINK; food service; health services, etc.) as special requirements may apply.

Thank you,

Carol Abell SPHR, SHRM-SCP
