Georgetown University Will Require Students To Wear Masks While In Class

Students who attend Georgetown University will have to continue wearing masks during in-class courses.

As COVID-19 and monkeypox continue to make rounds across the nation, schools like Georgetown University are already gearing up for students to come back to campus. Unless a student gets approval from a medical professional or is given a religious exemption, all students will be required to wear a mask in classrooms, labs, and other course-related areas on campus.

However, students won’t have to wear a mask during “informal gatherings” like study areas or libraries. But if a student uses university-sponsored public transportation or goes to their school’s health care facility, they’ll have to wear one there as well.

The reinstatement of masks comes after a “significant increase” in COVID-19 cases on campus back in April, The New York Post reports. About 98 percent of Georgetown students are vaccinated, but it looks like the university isn’t taking any chances.
