USLS imposes 2-Week mask mandate starting Sept. 13 due to rise of respiratory disease cases

In an effort to prioritize the health and safety of its campus community, the University has announced a mandatory two-week mask mandate, following recommendations from the Health Services Center.

The decision to implement this precautionary measure comes in response to a recent increase in respiratory disease cases on campus and is aimed at curbing the potential spread of illness among students, faculty, and staff.

The memo, released by the Vice Chancellor for Administration on September 12, outlines the details of the mask mandate, which will remain in effect from September 13 through September 27. 

The decision to impose the mask mandate aligns with guidance provided by the Health Services Center, which has been closely monitoring the recent increase in respiratory disease cases. 

In addition to the mask mandate, the Health Services Center has issued guidance for students, faculty, and staff who may be experiencing symptoms of illness. 

The memo advises individuals not feeling well or exhibiting any symptoms of illness to refrain from reporting to school until they are symptom-free and have sought medical advice. This precautionary measure is intended to reduce the risk of illness transmission within the campus environment.

For additional information and updates regarding the mask mandate and campus health guidelines, individuals are encouraged to visit the University's official website or contact the Health Services Center directly.
