Facial Covering Requirements
Am I required to wear a facial covering?
Facial coverings are welcome in all university-owned or controlled spaces but are not required unless you have tested positive within the last 10 days. If you have been exposed it would be helpful to wear a mask for 5 days after exposure when you could confirm that you were not infected with COVID testing.
- Anyone who has been exposed or tests positive for COVID-19 should continue to wear a facial covering when recommended by CDC guidelines.
If you feel more comfortable wearing a facial covering in campus spaces where it is not required, please continue to wear one. Free KN95 and medical masks for the Boise State campus community are available for pick-up at the front desk of Campus School, in Human Resources, at the Information Desk in the Student Union Building, and at the front desk of each residence hall.
We expect all members of our campus community to be respectful of others’ choices. If you witness or experience facial covering-related discrimination please report the incident to Title IX and Institutional Equity.
If I choose to continue to wear a facial covering, what type of facial covering is most effective?
Some are better than others. Details can be found on the facial covering section of our Stay Healthy page.
