* “unexplained symptoms” refers to symptoms you would not normally experience. For example, if you frequently have headaches, that would not be an unexplained symptom.

Guidelines for face coverings

Missouri S&T issued the Health and Safety Standards Policy Memorandum No. I-12 on July 1, 2020, setting a university policy on required face coverings. This policy considers the current state of science in developing a facial covering response to COVID-19.

Face coverings are an additional step to help slow the spread of COVID-19 when combined with everyday preventive actions and social distancing in public settings. Face coverings are especially important to keep people who don’t know they have the virus from transmitting it to others. 

Additional information about the policy is available in the Missouri S&T Face Covering Policy Guideline.

Examples of acceptable face coverings

Face coverings must cover the individual’s mouth and nose.  Examples of acceptable face coverings include:

  • Cloth ear-loop face coverings
  • Clear plastic ear-loop face coverings
  • Non-medical disposable face masks 

Please note: Face coverings with exhalation valves or vents should NOT be worn to help prevent the person wearing the face covering from spreading COVID-19 to others.  Exhalation valves or vents can allow for respiratory droplets to pass through and possibly reach others.”
