Mask mandate adjustments made for winter 2022 semester

This afternoon, an official notice was released announcing adjustments made to the current mask protocol for the upcoming winter semester.

Masks will only be required in classrooms, at large gatherings such as devotional and in locations where social distancing isn’t possible.

BYU-Idaho continues to work closely with Eastern Idaho Public Health and will watch infection and hospitalization rates.

The notice expressed that due to vaccines not being required on campus, a mask mandate is still necessary. This mandate will stay in place as long as needed to slow the spread of COVID-19. The notice encouraged students to consider getting vaccinated.

“We encourage everyone to follow the guidance of the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and BYU-Idaho’s President Henry J. Eyring by getting vaccinated and following health protocols, including mask-wearing in places where social distancing is not feasible.”
