Facial Coverings (Masks)

All students and guests will be encouraged to wear a facial covering (mask) that covers your nose and mouth. Attending large, indoor, public gatherings has been linked to increased risk of COVID-19 transmission. Wearing a mask will help protect you and other new Mavericks attending orientation.
