Mask Policy Update

August 30, 2021

Franklin University officials have been closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19 and Delta variant to guide decisions that help protect the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff, and the greater community. Accordingly, until further notice, all students, staff, faculty, and visitors will be required to wear face masks in areas that cannot maintain a 6’ distance or are high traffic areas where 6’ distance cannot be consistently maintained. 

Designated areas where masks will be required are: 

  • Student Affairs advising rooms
  • Student Affairs welcome center
  • Learning Commons Testing area
  • Learning Commons Tutoring area             

The University maintains its existing policy in all other areas of campus, which strongly encourages everyone to wear a mask indoors and in crowded areas regardless of vaccine status until further notice.
