Mask Mandate Update
In compliance with updated guidance from the Louisiana Department of Health, the City of New Orleans and the CDC, Tulane will no longer require students, faculty, staff, visitors or vendors to wear masks indoors or outdoors while on any Tulane campus — including residence halls, classrooms, dining halls, offices, recreation centers, COVID-19 testing centers, and campus buildings effective Friday, Oct. 29.
Although the pandemic is not over, our case load on campus and our positivity rate is very low and we are now in a mask-optional status for most of campus. This means individuals in our community may choose to continue to wear masks for their own personal health and safety but are not required to do so. All unvaccinated individuals are strongly encouraged to wear a mask while in public indoor spaces.
Individuals are required to wear face coverings in the following settings:
- While passengers or operators of public conveyances, including trains, shuttles, streetcars, buses, taxis, ride-shares, airplanes, ships, ferries and within the corresponding transportation hubs.
- In all healthcare facilities, including physician’s offices, hospitals, and long-term care facilities.
