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 Kent Campus
  • The College of Podiatric Medicine
  • The Cleveland Foot and Ankle Clinic
  • The Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative
  • The Trumbull Campus

Masks are required indoors 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. Portage, Cuyahoga and Trumbull counties are currently designated as “high” community level 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.
