Mask Requirements

Masks are required at OCU in shared spaces and anywhere social distancing is difficult.

OCU requires the following regarding mask usage on campus:

  • Masks must be a minimum of two layers of washable, breathable fabric.
  • The mask must completely cover the nose and mouth.
  • The mask must fit snugly against the sides of your face with no gaps.
  • Vented masks and neck gaiters are not permitted due to the uncertainty of their effectiveness.

Masks or cloth face coverings (must cover, at a minimum, nose and mouth) are required to be worn in shared spaces in campus buildings, including classrooms, labs, and other in-person instructional settings, and when moving throughout offices, in hallways, breakrooms, restrooms and common areas. Masks or cloth face coverings are required in outdoor spaces any time social distancing of at least 6 feet is not possible, including on sidewalks and other outdoor spaces. Masks may be removed for eating and drinking while observing social distancing protocols.

OCU will provide all employees and students a cloth face covering and has a stock of disposable face masks available for discretionary use.
