Face Masks Update

Submitted by Kris Boone, boone.3@osu.edu

Effective immediately, June 1, 2021, we will be following the Wayne County Health Department guidance regarding face masks.  

All other health and safety guidance is still in effect, such as physical distancing and sanitizing. 

You can include this message in your pre-meeting/event/program communications with groups:

Individuals may not attend if they or anyone living their household is experiencing any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath, loss of sense of taste or smell, or as been directly exposed (confirmed or suspected) to COVID-19 if they are not fully vaccinated. 

COVID-19 vaccinations are our best current protection against infection and a fatal outcome. Fully vaccinated individuals are not required to wear a face mask; however we strongly recommend eligible, but unvaccinated, individuals to continue to properly wear a face mask when social distancing cannot be maintained. 

A reminder: As the case has been to date, know that these guidelines may be modified at any time if conditions change, and/or if the guidance is not followed, and/or if a local health department issues more stringent requirements.
