Since case counts have remained low over the last two weeks, Carthage is taking a phased approach to relax the mask guidelines. It is imperative that we all take responsibility for wearing masks in the spaces and buildings where it is still required.

There are now spaces on campus that are mask friendly (optional). Mask friendly means that if any party in an individual office or meeting space prefers the wearing of masks, all parties should continue to carry a mask and wear it appropriately.

Should cases rise again we will revisit our masking policies.

Mask Friendly areas as of March 1, 2022

  • Residence Halls
  • Tarble Athletic and Recreation Center (TARC)
  • Campbell Student Union
  • Todd Wehr Center 
  • Donna’s Bytes in Hedberg Library

Masks are still required in offices within these buildings (for example, the Health and Counseling Center), and are required in the classroom spaces of the TARC.
