Face Covering Reminder

Dear Kent State University Students, Faculty and Staff,

This is a reminder that face coverings are now required indoors at these Kent State locations:

  • The College of Podiatric Medicine in Independence
  • The Cleveland Foot and Ankle Clinic in Cleveland
  • The Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative in Cleveland
  • Kent State University at Ashtabula

Masks are required indoors at these locations, except while working alone in an enclosed space such as a private office or lab.

Kent State is following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations for counties at “high,” “medium” or “low” community levels when making determinations for safety precautions on our campuses. Cuyahoga and Ashtabula counties are currently designated at “high” community levels for COVID-19 as defined by the CDC.

In counties that are at a “high” community level, the CDC recommends:

  • Wear a mask indoors in public.
  • Stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines.
  • Get tested if you show any virus symptoms.
  • Those at high risk for severe illness may want to take additional safety precautions. 

Thank you for doing your part to keep our community safe and healthy.
