Masks

Effective April 4, the College will be mask optional for all individuals. Those who are unvaccinated or unboosted are strongly encouraged to continue masking.

Please note that individuals who are completing quarantine and isolation must wear a mask under the New York State Department of Health’s guidelines

In addition, masks are still required in the following areas:

  • Lauderdale Health Center 
  • South Village Health Center
  • COVID-19 Testing Centers in Sturges Hall

The College reserves the right to require masks at specific events or reinstate mask requirements if conditions change.

The updated masking policy was developed in consultation with the Livingston County Department of Health (LCDOH) and in alignment with current CDC guidelines. Our campus has maintained low positivity rates, including in recent post-spring break weeks. Plus, we have high vaccination rates for both students and employees. What’s more, the CDC continues to categorize Livingston County’s community-level transmission as low.

Individuals are encouraged and welcome to use a mask if they choose to do so. One-way masking has proven helpful in protecting the mask wearer. Medical paper masks will continue to be available in dispensers throughout campus. We will continue to monitor campus, local, and state conditions and make adjustments as needed in consultation with the LCDOH.
