Face masks will no longer be requited indoors at Kent State University, KSU announced in an email Wednesday to students faculty and staff.

Face masks will no longer be requited indoors at Kent State, the university announced in an email Wednesday to students faculty and staff.

KSU says it believes this aligns the university with recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations and is regardless of the level for COVID-19 community spread in Portage County.

“However, when the CDC designates a county at a high level of community transmission, face masks are highly recommended,” states the email. “University leadership has reached this decision after careful review of recently updated CDC guidance and in consultation with medical and public health experts from the Kent City Health Department, the DeWeese Health Center and our College of Public Health.”

Fall classes begin on Thursday.
