Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Response


Face Coverings

Even when fully vaccinated, please still adhere to these requirements:

  • Face coverings must be worn at all times in university buildings—except when working alone in a closed space (office, lab, etc.);
  • Face coverings should be made of cloth and cover nose, mouth, and chin; and
  • Any exceptions to the face covering requirement must be documented.
  • Face coverings must be worn outdoors when physical distance of six feet cannot be maintained.

Residential Students

Residential students must wear face coverings in all public indoor spaces of residential facilities and outdoors when physical distancing of six feet cannot be maintained, unless they have a documented exception. All residents will receive a washable, reusable face mask when they move in.

Face Covering Exemptions

Please work with the Office of Disability Services to obtain documented exemptions. More information.

Face Shields

Consistent with CDC guidance, Wright State does not consider face shields to be an adequate substitute for face coverings due to the possibility that droplets could travel under or to the side of the shield if the wearer coughs or sneezes. As such, a face shield may only be used in conjunction with a face covering or as an approved exception to the face covering (e.g., required for communication for lip-reading).
