Face Covering Policy

March 22, 2022

As it has done throughout the pandemic, with regard to COVID-19 safety and health protocols, the University of Nebraska–Lincoln continues to follow the most recent guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department.

On March 22, 2022, the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department announced that the local community was — for the first time in nearly eight months — at a "low" risk of COVID-19 spread.

Accordingly, effective March 22, 2022, UNL no longer requires face coverings on our campuses or facilities.

Exceptions

Children's Center and on-campus medical clinics/buildings may have unique masking policies. All other exceptions to this policy have been ended.

Caring for Others in the Community

Face coverings have been shown to mitigate transmission of disease in our community. Huskers may choose to continue to wear face coverings for many reasons. As we remove face covering requirements, please continue to be respectful of others' choices.

This policy shall remain in effect until further guidance is provided from the Office of the Chancellor.
