Facemask Policy at Castleton University
In accordance with recommended changes in COVID-19 policies from the State of Vermont, Castleton University ended its mask mandate on March 11, 2022.
Despite this change, there may be circumstances where you are asked to wear a mask, so be ready to comply. For instance, when a faculty member requests mask use in the classroom, an office requests a mask upon entering, a varsity athlete encounters mask protocols established by the opponent’s host institution, or a student participating in a field experience is required to follow a different policy established by their agency.
Members of our community should be empowered to use a mask or ask others in their presence to do so where and when it is important for them without question, pressure, or negative repercussions from others. Honoring and respecting one another is the Castleton Way.
The COVID-19 policy remains fluid. This change reflects the latest guidance by the State and may change again if conditions warrant.
