CCU board of trustees ends indoor mask mandate

February 17, 2022

The Coastal Carolina University board of trustees ended the University’s indoor mask mandate effective today, Feb. 17, 2022.

Face coverings/masks are required in selected areas on campus, including Student Health Services, Counseling Services, and at COVID-19 testing and vaccine sites on campus. Face coverings/masks are also required on University shuttles, minibuses, and vans due to the CDC’s face mask order for public transportation. In all other areas, individuals have the option to wear a mask on campus if they choose.

Individuals released from quarantine or isolation must wear face coverings/masks indoors on campus and outdoors when around others during their assigned precautionary period.

The University encourages individuals to be respectful of others in recognizing their personal decisions to either wear or not wear a face covering/mask. COVID-19 protection guidance from the CDC recommends that everyone ages 2 years and older, regardless of vaccination status, should wear their masks indoors in public areas of substantial or high community transmission.

University community members are encouraged to:

• Use personal discretion in taking appropriate precautions for protection from COVID-19 based on risk for severe illness, vaccination status, and general level of comfort.

• Continue daily self-screening and self-monitoring for symptoms of COVID-19.

The University will continue to monitor conditions on campus and may adjust campuswide mitigation measures, if needed.
