Face Covering Guidelines

NDSU will be changing to a mask-optional policy, effective June 6, provided, however, the following rules will continue to be in effect:

  1. Every person should be comfortable continuing to wear a mask in their personal discretion and should not face any pressure to discontinue mask usage.
  2. Faculty may require masks to be worn in their classes at their discretion.
  3. Health care operations on campus, including Student Health Service, will continue to be able to mandate masks in accordance with regular health care protocols.
