Dear Members of the Loyola Community,
Yesterday Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott announced that an indoor mask mandate is being reinstated throughout Baltimore City. Effective Monday, Aug. 9, at 9 a.m. face coverings are required indoors on all of Loyola’s campuses. You may remove your mask, if you choose, when you are in personal residential spaces or a closed office and when not practical, such as while eating and drinking. This mandate is in effect regardless of vaccination status.
At this time, wearing a mask outdoors is still optional. If you feel more comfortable wearing a mask outdoors, please do so.
These are challenging times, but we will come through this together—and we are looking forward to a wonderful in-person experience as the new academic year begins. Thank you for doing your part to get vaccinated against COVID-19 and working to keep yourself and others in our community safe and healthy.
Amanda M. Thomas, Ph.D.
