UPDATED July 28, 2021: Lincoln University will re-implement its mask protocol for all indoor spaces beginning Monday, August 2, based on new guidance from the CDC. The guidance states, "To maximize protection from the Delta variant and prevent possibly spreading it to others, wear a mask indoors in public if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission." Current trends show Missouri in the high transmission category. The University will review the local, state and regional trends on a weekly basis to determine the need for change in the protocol.
Reminders on how to properly wear a mask:
- Be sure your mask covers your mouth, nose and chin
- Don't put your mask around your neck or up on your forehead
- Don't touch the front of the mask, and, if you do, wash your hands or use sanitizer to disinfect
PROPER HANDWASHING helps stop the spread of germs.
The COVID-19 Pandemic that hit our nation in Spring 2020 has greatly affected every aspect of our daily lives. Our first priority is promoting the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff. The University draws upon the guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in its decision-making process. For more information from the CDC, please visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html.
Faculty, staff, employees, students, and campus visitors voluntarily assume full responsibility for any and all risks of illness or injury associated with exposure to COVID-19, as well as from use of any protective equipment, including face masks, that the University may voluntarily provide.
As defined by the CDC, isolation and quarantine help protect the public by preventing exposure to people who have or may have a contagious disease.
- Isolation separates sick people with a contagious disease from people who are not sick.
- Quarantine separates and restricts the movement of people who were exposed to a contagious disease to see if they become sick.
