As of July 1, 2021, face masks are no longer required on Pacific’s campuses — in most facilities — for individuals who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Face masks remain required in healthcare settings, including Pacific’s clinics, and likely will be required in K-12 settings in Fall 2021, including the Pacific University Early Learning Community, which serves children in preschool through fourth grade.
Under state guidelines, face masks also are required in public transportation settings, including Pacific's vans and buses.
CDC guidance indicates that unvaccinated individuals should continue to wear face masks indoors or in large gatherings.
Additionally, face masks have proven highly effective in helping to mitigate the spread of respiratory illnesses, such as the flu and colds, in addition to COVID-19.
Pacific University urges anyone who is unvaccinated, who is immunocompromised, or who is experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness, including a cold or the flu, to continue wearing a face mask.
We also urge all members of our community to be supportive of one another’s personal circumstances and choices to wear a mask to protect themselves or their loved ones.
