Aug. 6, 2021: UMB Face Covering Policy

Dear Students, 

I am sure that you have read Dr. Jarrell’s email regarding the update to UMB’s face mask policy, which I am attaching here for your convenience.   

Given the developments of the pandemic, indoor mask wearing in all UMB facilities regardless of vaccination status is required (including for classes, simulation activities, and other in-person gatherings), effective today August 6, 2021. There are some limited circumstances in which you are not required to wear a mask, as outlined in the policy and Dr. Jarrell’s email.   

We are committed to ensuring the highest possible levels of infection control while balancing our desire to return to in-person learning, and we sincerely appreciate your continued cooperation as we respond to the variables of this pandemic.
