“Mask” means a covering made of cloth, fabric, or other soft or permeable material, without holes, that covers only the nose and mouth and surrounding areas of the lower face. A mask that hides or obscures the wearer’s eyes or forehead (a costume mask for example) is not a considered a mask for NKU’s purposes. A mask may be factory-made or may be handmade and improvised from ordinary household materials. The mask should be comfortable, so that the wearer can breathe comfortably through the nose and does not have to adjust it frequently to avoid touching the face.
Masks are required for all persons in common areas where you might voluntarily or involuntarily encounter another person. This includes conference/meeting rooms, hallways, lobbies, and other indoor spaces.
When students are in their room assignments within their residence hall, they are not required to wear masks.
NKU is providing reusable masks to all faculty, staff, and students. Reusable masks will be available using your NKU All Card from the Student Union Information Desk (2nd Floor) during normal building hours. Supplies may be limited.
Limited quantities of disposable masks may be available at the Welcome Center, Student Union and University Center Information Desks, Steely Library Distribution Desk, and Campus Recreation during normal business hours.
