Face covering guidelines

  • Students, employees, and members of the public, who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, are no longer required to wear a face covering while outside on NSHE campuses and inside buildings. Please review CDC guidelines for fully-vaccinated individuals.

  • Students, employees, and members of the public, who have not been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, are still required to wear face coverings while inside NSHE buildings, irrespective of whether other individuals are present, and outside on campuses in large groups or gatherings, or where food is prepared or served. For people who have not received a COVID-19 vaccine, wearing a face covering is not a choice and remains mandatory pursuant to state law. Please review CDC guidelines for not fully-vaccinated individuals.
