Effective Wednesday, Feb. 16, 2022, face coverings are mandatory only in classrooms and individual offices or residential spaces, based on individual preference. In response to sustained 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

Stetson recommends all unvaccinated persons wear face coverings in higher-risk situations. The university reserves the right to alter these protocols based on COVID-19 trends, health guidance, state laws and federal compliance requirements.
