A message from President Michael K. Young
Dear Aggie Faculty, Staff, Students and Visitors,
As announced, we are in full execution mode this summer to return in the fall. Committees, including one on face-coverings, have been hard at work to help make this possible. I am announcing a face-covering policy, effective Monday, June 15.
Face coverings (cloth face covering, surgical mask, etc.) must be worn by all individuals (faculty, staff, students and visitors) on Texas A&M University campuses in the following areas:
- Indoor public areas on campus, except where marked, even if you are alone. This includes all non-private office or residential spaces, such as: lobbies, restrooms, classrooms, teaching and research laboratories, common spaces in residence halls, conference rooms, and break rooms;
- Outdoor spaces where six feet or more of physical distancing is difficult to reliably maintain;
- We recommend individuals have at least three face coverings available to use throughout the week in order to begin each day with a new or cleaned face covering;
- Exceptions to the policy will be granted on a case-by-case basis as outlined in the policy and FAQs.
