What is the status of public access, pandemic protocols and general university operations on campus?

The full University of Maine System updated guidance is online.

Among the highlights:

  • Effective March 26, face coverings will be optional for students, faculty, staff and visitors in non-classroom facilities on campus and in our facilities statewide, both indoors and out, regardless of vaccination status.
  • For indoor events of more than 75 persons, face coverings are required unless proof of vaccination or a negative test is required as a condition of entrance, in which case face coverings can be optional as determined by the organizing authority. Proof of vaccination against COVID-19 or a negative test is already required at indoor University events of more than 250 persons, meaning face coverings can be optional at such events as determined by the organizing authority. For indoor events of 75 or fewer persons, face coverings are optional.
