Wearing face coverings on campus is a key component of a multilayered prevention strategy that all Roadrunners are strongly encouraged to practice, along with vaccination, hand washing, covering coughs and sneezes, staying home when sick, and regularly sanitizing personal study and office spaces. Recommended face coverings can be medical or non-medical grade and should fully cover both the nose and the mouth.
