The COVID-19 Task Force continues to monitor the number of cases in Cuyahoga County and follow guidance from the CDC and other public health officials. At this time, the CDC recommends that vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals wear a mask in indoor public spaces in areas of substantial or high transmission. This currently includes Cuyahoga County.  Therefore, the University will continue to require the wearing of masks while inside any University building until the campus community is notified otherwise.
