Wright State University changes mask policy as COVID-19 cases in the state drop

Dayton, Ohio – The number of COVID-19 cases in the state has dropped, which has led Wright State University to change its mask requirements for both its Dayton and Lake campuses, effective right now.

Several public places, including the following, now allow people to enter without face coverings, according to a university announcement.

According to a university announcement, people are now allowed to enter the following settings without face coverings:

  • University Libraries
  • Student Union public spaces
  • Dining areas
  • Campus Recreation Fitness Center
  • Wright State Nutter Center
  • Indoor public performances and athletic events
  • Indoor public areas in most campus buildings, including hallways, common spaces and conference rooms
  • Campus housing common spaces
  • Outdoor spaces

According to the university’s statement, mask requirements will still be in place at lab settings, classrooms, individual offices upon employee request, campus transportation, and all Health Service sites.

There will still be places on both campuses where people can get masks.

“If you are at high risk for illness, you should consult with your health care provider and consider continuing to wear a mask. If you live with or get together with someone at high risk for severe illness, you should also consider taking a COVID test and wearing a mask when indoors with them,” said Chris Taylor, Ph.D., dean of students and chair of the university’s COVID Task Force.

It is still recommended that students and employees receive a COVID-19 vaccine and booster.
