Everyone on campus — regardless of their vaccination status — is required to wear a face mask indoors.Due to the highly contagious nature of the omicron variant, cloth masks alone no longer meet the university's mask requirement. DePaul strongly recommends using medical grade masks such as KN95 or N95 masks. If you do not have an N95 or KN95 mask, you may double mask with a cloth mask layered over a surgical one. A well-fitted surgical mask by itself is also acceptable but not preferable.
If you need one, KN95 masks are available at a limited number of first-floor desk areas near building entrances at the following locations: Loop Campus:
Lincoln Park Campus:
Face masks remain optional outdoors and may be removed if individuals are alone in an office with the door closed.
