COLLEGE STATION, TX — Texas A&M University is requiring everyone wear a mask or face covering while on any of its campuses.

President Michael K. Young announced the new face mask policy, which will take effect Monday, June 15.

According to the police, face coverings, such as cloth face coverings, surgical mask, etc., must be worn by all individuals on Texas A&M University campuses. This includes faculty, staff, students and visitors.

Masks must be worn in indoor public areas on campus, except where marked, even if you're alone. This includes all non-private office or residential spaces, such as: lobbies, restrooms, classrooms, teaching and research laboratories, common spaces in residence halls, conference rooms, and break rooms.

Masks or coverings must also be worn in outdoor spaces where six feet or more of physical distancing is difficult to reliably maintain.

The university is recommending individuals have at least three face coverings available to use throughout the week in order to begin each day with a new or cleaned face covering.

President Young said exceptions to the policy will be granted on a case-by-case bases. Those with questions can email facecovering@tamu.edu.
