Proper Wearing of Masks and Recommendations for Vaccinated and Unvaccinated Individuals 

Image of person wearing mask, image courtesy of the CDCSUNY Geneseo has updated guidelines for preventing the spread of COVID-19 on campus. SUNY policy currently requires all students, faculty, and staff wear a mask in any public indoor spaces on campus.

The CDC also has updated information for fully vaccinated people given new evidence on the B.1.617.2 (Delta) variant currently circulating in the United States. The CDC recommends unvaccinated and fully vaccinated individuals wear a mask in public indoor spaces in areas of substantial or high transmission.  More information about CDC recommendations and guidelines for fully vaccinated individuals may be found on their website. Masks with exhalation valves which allow virus to escape and/or wearing a face shield alone are not acceptable at the college. 

The CDC still recommends wearing two masks for better protection against contracting the COVID virus, and may be especially useful for individuals who have certain types of facial hair, such as beards. Using a disposable medical procedure mask under a cloth mask to reduce cumulative exposure of the wearer by over 95% as determined in a recent study.  The CDC notes it is important not to double two disposable medical procedure masks due to the poor fit of such masks, which do not lend any additional benefit on their own.  More information about how to improve how a mask protects you and how to choose and wear a mask properly can be found at the CDC website.  

Laboratory Safety

Laboratory safety at SUNY Geneseo is our priority.  Recognized at the college for robust chemical hygiene and chemistry laboratory safety practices, stockroom staff work closely with department faculty to ensure and support laboratory safety practices, safety education, and build systemic and lasting safety culture.
