CUNY and MEC will not require face masks during the fall semester; it is optional. Anyone who would like to continue wearing masks in any setting is welcome to do so at any time. Masks will continue to be available at the campus Campus Security and Public Safety desk.
Faculty, staff, and students who are not vaccinated are urged to continue to wear a mask. Mask requirements associated with isolation and quarantine remain in effect, as referenced later in these guidelines.
Those who choose to wear a mask should continue to follow CDC guidance on acceptable face coverings.
Note, MEC will still require employees to wear protective PPE masks due to the nature of their work. Employers must comply with all applicable OSHA standards.
