Effective Monday, June 1, 2020, all faculty, staff, students, contractors, suppliers, vendors, and visitors are required to wear cloth face coverings in all hallways, elevators, public spaces, and common areas, and when entering all IU buildings.
Cloth face coverings must also be worn in office spaces and outdoor spaces where physical distancing is difficult to maintain.
Wearing a face covering is not required in private offices or when alone in a space.
This new requirement aligns with the CDC’s recommendation to wear cloth face coverings in public settings.
IU will be providing two cloth face coverings to all faculty, staff, and students before the fall 2020 semester begins. In the meantime, please provide your own cloth face covering when on campus.
In addition to wearing cloth face coverings, you must also take the following personal precautions while on campus:
- Practice physical distancing at all times (at least six feet of physical separation between yourself and others).
- Practice good personal hygiene, including washing hands frequently with soap and water or using hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap is unavailable.
- Routinely clean and sanitize your work space and shared equipment.
- Adhere to the guidelines and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as federal and state governmental authorities, in order to protect your own health and the health of the entire IU community.
