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.
