Starting Friday, all people (regardless of vaccination status) are required to wear a face covering outdoors whenever physical distancing of 6 feet cannot be maintained. This includes ALL Linfield organized or sanctioned events and gatherings indoor and outdoor. Face coverings continue to be required for all in indoor settings, unless alone in your workspace or with your roommates in a private residence.

More details can be found in the university’s Face Covering Policy or in the COVID-19 Policy FAQs.
