If you are NOT fully vaccinated you must also wear a mask in all public indoor spaces and at all crowded outdoor spaces. You are strongly encouraged to wear a mask at all times for your own protection.
If a staff or faculty member does not comply with masking, testing or any other health and safety requirements, progressive discipline will be implemented, up to and including termination. Those who are fully vaccinated may choose to wear a mask if they wish to at other times, too, and we ask that all members of the UMD community respect everyone who wishes to do so.
