Will people be required to wear masks on campus?


Effective Monday, July 13, all students, faculty and staff, and visitors (including contractors, service providers, vendors, and suppliers) are required to use a cloth face covering to cover both the nose and mouth at all times when on any Winona State University campus or property with the following exceptions:* 

  • When outdoors, provided appropriate physical distancing can be observed.
  • When eating or drinking, provided appropriate physical distancing can be observed. When in one’s assigned apartment or residence hall room.
  • When alone in an office, study area, or other private space where it is unlikely you will encounter others. When alone in a motor vehicle or utility vehicle used for university business.
  • When an accommodation is necessary as indicated by a medical or similar subject matter expert and granted by express written permission of the University.

To request an accommodation, please contact Access Services (students) or Human Resources (employees).

*Students and faculty in internship, clinical, and other experiential learning settings may have to take additional respiratory precautions based on the specific setting, practice, and host site guidelines and expectations.
