Masks are welcome but no longer required at OSU. Those at higher risk should continue to wear masks. Masks will be required in health care settings until April 3. See below for more information. 

Per OHA Rule 33-019-1011, masks are required in healthcare settings including:

As of April 3, masks will be optional in health care settings. Just as before the pandemic, for the increased safety of students and staff, Student Health Services asks that those with a cough, fever or other respiratory symptoms to wear a mask when in SHS facilities. 

As OSU has done throughout the pandemic, we plan to remain aligned with OHA and guidance provided by local public health authorities. This stance is consistent with our practice throughout the pandemic. Ongoing mask use is welcomed and encouraged for some individuals. As always, we will continue to evaluate future masking needs in consultation with local health authorities.
