Policy on Face Coverings
All members of the ETSU community, including visitors, are required to wear face coverings in public spaces. Read COVID-19 Policy on Face Coverings for details.
The CDC recommends people wear face coverings in public and in other settings where they are around others who do not live in their households, especially when physical distancing may be difficult to maintain. COVID-19 has been shown to spread person to person primarily through respiratory droplets created when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. Employees, students and other persons who are present face-to-face on campus may be exposed to one another for prolonged periods of time, sometimes in environments where physical distancing may be a challenge such as in the classroom.
ETSU takes the health of our employees and students seriously, and we appreciate your cooperation in taking measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 including wearing a face covering while present on campus in classrooms and other indoor areas, as well as outdoor areas where physical distance between persons cannot be maintained.
