NMU's Mask Requirement
Effective Tuesday, August 24
ALL individuals – vaccinated and not vaccinated – must wear masks
when indoors at ALL Northern facilities.
With Marquette County’s COVID classification changing from “moderate” to “substantial” the CDC recommends that all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, wear masks (over nose and mouth) when indoors in any areas that are at the substantial and high COVID levels.
Northern will require a mask to be worn by all individuals – vaccinated and not vaccinated – whenever inside a Northern facility. This includes ALL areas of ALL university facilities – classrooms, labs, hallways, lounges, dining locations, etc. The only exceptions are private living spaces (residence hall rooms and apartments), private offices, when an individual is the lone person in a university vehicle, and when an individual is actively eating in an NMU eatery. The mask requirement includes visitors on campus and groups renting NMU facilities.
Here are a few videos and infographics that provide information on how to properly put on, take off and take care of your face mask.
