Face Masks on Campus

Unless you have a documented medical or psychiatric condition on file with SAS, you will be required to wear a face mask on campus, which is one of the best practices for reducing the spread of Covid-19. All returning students have signed the F&M Pledge, which includes wearing a face mask.  

The ADA policy on face masks clearly explains the conditions under which one needs a face mask along with alternatives if one is not able to safely wear a face mask.

What are some reasonable modifications to the face mask policy? As excerpted from the ADA policy:

  • Allow a person to wear a scarf, loose face covering, or full face shield instead of a face mask;
  • Allow a person to wait in a car for an appointment and enter the building when called or texted; or
  • Offer appointments by telephone or video calls.
