Until further notice, face masks will be required indoors for everyone on campus, regardless of vaccination status. We are disappointed to have to make this decision, but, due to the highly contagious Delta variant, COVID-19 transmission rates are increasing in many parts of the country, including Monroe County. This move is in line with updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), New York State, and Monroe County Health officials.
The indoor mask requirement applies at all times, except when alone, in a private office with the door closed, your living space, or while eating. In addition, members of the RIT community who are not fully vaccinated are also required to wear face masks outdoors in crowded settings when distancing cannot be observed.
