Lyon College updates mask policy for spring semester

Lyon College has updated its mask policy for the spring semester due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases and the rise of the highly contagious Omicron variant.

In order to safely continue in-person education, the College will require all persons to properly wear a mask when indoors in all campus buildings, including academic buildings, Edwards Commons, Becknell Gymnasium, and residence halls.

Properly wearing a mask is defined as wearing a mask that covers both the mouth and nose. Disposable medical-grade masks, multi-layered cloth masks, or N95 masks meet the mask requirement. 

Additionally, classroom capacity has been decreased from 80 percent to 70 percent.

Please note that the mask requirements are subject to change if cases drop and the presence of the Omicron variant decreases. The College will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and its variants and will adapt COVID policies as needed.
