Guidelines for Steward and Department of Astronomy Return to Campus

As always, if you have any questions, ask your supervisor.

Jan 5, 2020 face covering rules HERE.

Based on current health conditions and aligned with CDC guidance as well as our commitment to deliver in-person learning at the University of Arizona, we will require the use of surgical or higher-grade (KN95, KF94) face masks be worn: 1) In all indoor spaces where it is not possible to adequately and continuously maintain social distance. 2) Any building/facility that is operated by or affiliated with the University where patients or human research subjects participating in clinical research are seen in person. 3) In locations where personal protective equipment (including masks) has always been required to maintain safety protocols for situations with high hazards, such as areas where regulated chemicals are used or stored and other laboratory settings. 4) Inside a Cat Tran shuttle or any other public transportation provided by the University.

Please note that cloth masks will no longer meet the face covering requirement. However, you may combine a cloth mask (top layer) and a surgical mask (bottom layer) to improve fit and increase protection. These requirements apply to all faculty, staff, students, designated campus colleagues and visitors to the University of Arizona campuses or locations.
