Consistent with state law, NAU does not require everyone to wear a mask.
Masks are not required outdoors, but are recommended indoors, as well as for people meeting in large groups.
We are promoting and encouraging a mask-friendly campus that respects individual choice regarding whether or not to wear a mask.
Masks are required in Campus Health Services, at COVID-19 vaccination and testing sites, and on public transportation, including on NAU buses.
NAU supports a Community of Care philosophy and encourages employees and students to stay home if they are sick.
NAU employees should not request others to wear masks. Whether to wear a mask is a personal decision. NAU asks that all members of our community not judge anyone on our campuses based on whether or not they choose to wear a mask.
NAU encourages all Lumberjacks to support each other’s right to make personal decisions.
