AUBURN, Ala. (EETV) - Beginning Monday, November 15th, Auburn University will no longer require face coverings in most campus buildings for those who are fully vaccinated. This change in policy comes with Auburn following the guidelines of Executive Order 14042 for requirements of federal contractors which also includes the vaccine mandate for University employees.
Face coverings must be continued to be worn in certain locations on campus, regardless of vaccination status, including Tiger Transit and health care settings such as the Auburn University Medical Clinic.
It is still up to faculty members' discretion whether to require individuals to continue wearing face coverings during their classes if they have a mask requirement in their syllabus.
Individuals who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (including those granted an exception to the university’s COVID-19 vaccine policy) must continue to wear face coverings at all times, with a few exceptions. Exceptions include: being alone in an office with a closed-door, actively eating or drinking, and maintaining appropriate distancing and actively exercising at the Auburn University Campus Recreation and Wellness Center.
