Wright State University will no longer require masks in many public spaces on campus beginning Thursday, according to university officials.

Wright State said masks will still be required in some situations, such as classrooms, lab settings, individual offices if requested by an employee, campus transportation and health services, including Student Health, Wright State Physicians and the Dayton Campus Testing and Vaccination Center.

Wright State will no longer require masks at the Nutter Center, at public performances and at the student union.

Chris Taylor, dean of students and chair of the university’s COVID Task Force, attributed the policy revisions to the continued decline of COVID-19 cases on campus and in the surrounding communities and the updated face masks guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“Some members of the Raider and Laker family will prefer to keep wearing masks, and I ask that we all support these personal preferences,” Taylor said. “I also ask that everyone continue to be respectful of others and look out for each other.”
