Face Coverings Optional; Required in Classrooms 
Effective Monday, Dec. 6, face coverings are mandatory only in classrooms and individual office or residential spaces, based on individual preference. In response to sustained positive COVID-19 trends, Stetson University has authorized less restrictive protocols for face coverings in our continued effort to balance necessary community safeguards and individual liberty. This move applies to most campus areas, including dining areas, libraries, indoor events, common areas and residential building community-use spaces.

 As a reminder, face coverings continue to be required in:

  • Classrooms
  • Personal office and residential spaces, based on occupant preference
