Am I able to request that others in my office or workspace wear a face covering if I am concerned about my personal health or the health of a family member in my care?

OSU policy does not currently require the use of face coverings. Further, OSU employee offices and workspaces are public spaces available to others in the normal course of business; these spaces are generally subject to the same public health policies as other OSU spaces.

Some employees may have personal health concerns when interacting with others in the relatively closed environment of an individual office and are encouraged to take the personal health precautions if they choose. These include wearing two face coverings, N95 masks, meeting via Zoom where feasible and approved or in a larger meeting space that provides physical distancing.
