To help create a safer learning, living and working environment for all students, faculty, and staff, new classroom policies will be in effect this fall across Penn State’s campuses in alignment with public health recommendations and Governor Tom Wolf’s requirements for higher education institutions. Specific policy guidance has been posted to the Office of Student Conduct website.
To reduce the risk of widespread virus transmission, wearing face masks and social distancing will be required for all students and employees in classrooms, labs, offices, and campus buildings. Students and employees also should practice social distancing, avoid large gatherings, and wear face masks while on campus, as well as within their local communities in line with local and state requirements.
Complete details are available in a July 1 release from the University on Masking and Social Distancing Policies.
