Mask Policy to be Reviewed January 28December 7, 2021
Truman will continue the indoor mask policy into the beginning of the Spring 2022 Semester, with the next review of the policy occurring on or before January 28.
With a large portion of the campus community traveling during winter break, setting the review date three class weeks into the semester will allow for time to properly assess the rate of students and employees exposed to the virus.
Decisions regarding the mask policy are made by the president in consultation with the executive leadership team. Factors taken into consideration include, but are not limited to: the number of active cases related to the University; the transmission rate in Adair County; the campus vaccination rate; Truman’s capacity to effectively accommodate students in isolation and quarantine; guidance of the CDC and the local health department; and the advice of Faculty Senate, Staff Council, and Student Government.
