An update on mask changes for all on campus

August 13, 2021

President Schatzel and Provost Perreault sent a message to the TU community on Friday regarding masks on campus.

Dear TU students, faculty and staff —

Following recent CDC guidance and Baltimore County’s announcement requiring masks in all county offices and facilities, Towson University will require masks in indoor locations for all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, in all university buildings effective Monday, August 16. 

We will continue to monitor data and work in conjunction with our local, state and federal partners as we have throughout the pandemic.

Masks are required to be worn in every building, except when alone in private spaces like offices and in residence halls with only roommates, or while briefly eating or drinking. Masks must be worn in common areas, while walking between locations indoors and when seated in open work stations, such as cubicles. Masks will continue to be required while on TU-provided community transportation, in healthcare settings—including the University Health Center and West Village Testing Center—and in settings where pre-school and K-12 student groups are present.

These requirements apply to all TU facilities, including those not on the core contiguous campus area, as well as to visitors of those spaces. 

Thank you for doing your part to show how Tigers Care, and for putting our students first as we prepare for a healthy, safe and engaging fall semester at TU!
