Another College Restores Mask Mandate

June 2, 2022

California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, restored its indoor mask mandate on Tuesday.

This is the last week of classes in the spring quarter. The mandate will be in place until at least June 12.

“When we informed the campus community in February that we were lifting the campus’s indoor mask mandate, we indicated that we would monitor health and safety conditions and would reinstate the mandate should those conditions require it. Unfortunately, that time has come,” said a letter from Anthony J. Knight, executive director of public safety at the university.

The University of California, Los Angeles, restored its indoor mask mandate last week, joining the University of Hawai‘i system and the Pennsylvania State University main campus in making such a move.
