Christian Brothers University is a “mask friendly campus.” 

This means that face masks are no longer required in indoor public spaces or residence halls. Masks are still required in classrooms and offices, but faculty and staff members have the option to opt out at their discretion, meaning masks are not required in their individual designated spaces.
Masks may still be required at certain events, based on the density of the event. They may also be required at events and meetings if requested by the department or person holding the event/meeting. Faculty and staff members may also request persons visiting their office or workspace to wear a mask. Anyone who is asked to wear a mask in these circumstances should graciously comply with the request.
Although mask-wearing in many places and circumstances is no longer be required, everyone on the CBU campus is welcome to stay masked if they wish. As a Lasallian community that practices “respect for all persons,” all of us certainly respect their decision.

Vaccine Boosters

CBU strongly urges fully vaccinated individuals to receive a “booster” dose of vaccine if at least six months has passed since their second dose. Results of early studies indicate the booster doses may provide valuable protection against the Omicron variant, as well as the more common Delta variant.
