Mask Guidance

Surgical Mask

We offer limited in-person classes. Following UNMC guidance, all students, instructors, and staff are asked to:

  • Self-screen prior to coming on campus. For campus visitors, please use the 1-Check COVID app available to iOS and Android users. For UNMC/Nebraska Medicine employees and students, please use the 1-Check UNMC app.
  • Maintain social distance and wear a mask while on campus. KN95 face masks are still highly recommended but no longer required. Surgical masks are allowed. Cloth masks, gaiters, vented masks, and bandanas still are not approved for use. Students are required to bring their own masks in order to be admitted to class.
  • Ensure strict, effective, and frequent hand hygiene.
