Face Mask Requirements

Cabrini University will continue to follow CDC guidelines, as we have done since the beginning of the pandemic. Because Delaware County is currently in a medium-risk area (CDC only recommends masks in high-risk areas), and because we have experienced this same low case count and increased immunity, effective March 2, 2022, masks will not be required on campus—including indoor and outdoor spaces. CDC mask guidance remains in place for specific circumstances related to coronavirus exposure, including, quarantine and isolation situations.

We recognize that each person’s comfort level and circumstance differ, and if you choose to continue to wear your mask on campus, please know that your decision to remain masked is supported by our community.

Acceptable Masks and Face Coverings

Acceptable Face Masks

In general, masks must cover the mouth and nose and should be two or more layers of a nonporous fabric, such as cotton, and without large holes or gaps in the fibers. KN95 masks or surgical masks are recommended.

Knit masks and N95 masks with exhalation valves do not provide adequate filtration. Additionally, neck gaiters and bandanas are generally not considered to be effective. As such, none of these will be considered an acceptable mask/face covering. 

It is recommended that you keep a sufficient supply of clean masks/coverings. Additional masks will be available on campus and for purchase in Cabrini’s Campus Store and at cabrinishop.com.

Face MasksHow to Put on Your Mask

  • Avoid touching the front of the face covering/ disposable mask while putting it on.
  • Wash hands or use hand sanitizer before handling the mask/covering.
  • Make sure the mask fits snugly over your nose and under your chin.
  • Tie straps behind the head and neck or loop around the ears.

How to Take Your Mask Off

  • Do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth when removing your mask/covering.
  • Loop your finger into the strap and pull the strap away from the ear, or untie the straps.
  • Wash your hands immediately after removing.

Taking Care of Your Mask

  • Cloth face coverings must be laundered daily to remain effective, and can be washed with your regular laundry.
  • Keep your mask/covering stored in a paper bag when not in use.
  • Cloth face masks should be replaced immediately if soiled, damaged (e.g., ripped, punctured), or visibly contaminated.
