ISU will require face coverings while indoors on campus with some exceptions

July 21, 2020


Indiana State University will require face coverings while indoors on campus, with some exceptions, starting Wednesday.

The requirement is based on guidance from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

Exceptions apply in private offices, residence hall rooms, while sitting and eating or drinking in a dining area, and exercising in the Student Recreation Center or Sports Performance Center.

Other exceptions will apply to Intercollegiate Athletics and some instructional and co-curricular experiences.

Face coverings are required in residence hall pod bathrooms, except when showering. The SRC showers are closed. Face coverings will be required while entering and exiting dining areas and waiting to receive food. 

Students, faculty, and staff will receive two masks from the university.

Faculty and staff face coverings are included in welcome back packets (in lieu of the Faculty and Staff Kickoff Celebration) that will be delivered to their Dean or Vice President by Friday.

The process of distributing masks to students is being determined.
