USI Implements Mask Policy

USI's face coverings mandate is being reinstated indoors effective immediately.

Posted: Jul 27, 2021 10:29 PM

The University of Southern Indiana is shifting its indoor mask policy on campus.

The policy goes back into effect on July 28. According to the new policy, face coverings will be required indoors on the USI campus, regardless of vaccination status, and until further notice.

The physical distancing protocol of 3 feet or more will continue to be required.

USI leaders made the decision following the recent announcement and recommendations from the CDC.

Reversing previous guidance, the CDC recommended today, July 27, that people vaccinated for the coronavirus resume wearing face coverings indoors in areas of the country where infection rates are at a high level.

According to a press release from the university, USI strongly encourages all students and employees to get vaccinated as soon as possible.

The policy is in effect until further notice.

The combination of sunshine and southerly winds will make for another unseasonably warm day throughout the Ohio Valley - expect an afternoon high temperature near 69° this afternoon. Some areas could even see temperatures well into the 70s. Friday evening looks as though it will be just as pleasant; after seeing the upper 60s earlier in the day, we'll dip to 60° by 5 PM before falling towards 54° around 7 o’clock. We are however, watching a passing cold front that is expected to pass through the Tri-State late Friday evening and early Saturday morning. We won't see any rain from this front, but it will cool temperatures into the low 40s by Saturday morning.
