CLEVELAND, Ohio – Cleveland State University will once again require masks on campus.
Effective Monday, students and faculty will have to wear masks in all indoor spaces, which include shared offices, classrooms and laboratories. This comes after Centers for Disease Control data showed that COVID-19 levels were high in Cuyahoga County and, beginning Thursday, advised people to wear masks indoors in public and stay up to date on their vaccines.
In a statement on its website, CSU said it will continue to “monitor and adapt safety efforts based on guidance from the CDC and public health officials. Notifications of changes in protocols based on CDC guidelines will appear in this space. Thank you for helping keep our community safe.”
Cuyahoga County recently announced that it too would be reinstating a mask mandate for anyone entering government building regardless of vaccination status starting Monday. The county had its last official mask mandate on June 1, which lasted for a few weeks.
