9.  Do adult faculty and staff have to wear facial coverings?

Face masks that properly cover the wearer’s mouth and nose should be worn indoors outside of your residence at all times, under the Governor’s statewide mask mandate. The order requires face coverings for everyone of age to be enrolled in kindergarten and older except for the following:
