U of O Lifts Indoor Mask Requirements For Those Fully Vaccinated

Love Cross

The University of Oregon enacted new Summer COVID-19 Regulations Tuesday, lifting indoor mask wearing requirements for those who are fully vaccinated.

Individuals who are not fully vaccinated are still required to wear face coverings indoors except when alone in a room or in an area specifically designated for eating in groups.

Masks are also still required, regardless of vaccination status, for certain university services that fall under state or federal covering requirements. That includes health or transportation services, and when working with children under the age of 12.

No announcement has been made regarding face coverings for the fall term, though the university announced in May that students, faculty, and staff who are on campus must be vaccinated prior to the start of the upcoming school year. The university is offering exemptions for medical and non-medical reasons.

Campus-wide mask wearing rules were put in place in October 2020. In May, 2021, the university announced that masks were no longer required outdoors when people were alone or in uncorwded areas.
