Face Coverings

Proper Use, Removal, and Washing of Face Coverings

Face coverings are required to be worn by staff, visitors, and students. Please check back for updates.

Face coverings are a critical tool in the fight against COVID-19 that could reduce the spread of the disease. COVID-19 spreads from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, talks, or raises their voice. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people nearby and possibly be inhaled into the lungs. The CDC recommends wearing masks in settings when around people outside of a person’s household. It is very important to wear a mask correctly and consistently.
