Mask Wearing Requirements

Face masks are required

Sonoma County public health orders require all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, to wear face coverings when indoors in public settings. Masks are proven to be very effective at preventing the circulation of the coronavirus.

INDOORS

  • Masks are required inside ALL campus buildings, except residence halls.

  • Employees may remove their mask if they are in their private office while the door is closed.

  • Masks may be taken off for brief periods indoors while eating, drinking, or taking oral medications. However, it is recommended that the mask be worn between bites and sips when eating or drinking.

OUTDOORS

  • Masks are not required outdoors, as long as a six-foot physical distance between persons can be maintained.

If you lose or forget to bring a mask to campus, you may pick one up during business hours at the Seawolf Services Center in Salazar Hall or the Student Center.

When worn correctly the face mask should cover your nose and mouth completely.  The mask should not fit loosely around the edges and should not be worn under your nose and chin.

Suitable types of masks are surgical, multi-layer cloth, and N95.  Bandanas, gaiters, or vented masks are not suitable.
