Masks Required for Indoor Learning Spaces, Meetings and Gatherings of 10 or More
LMU now requires masks for indoor meetings, gatherings, and learning spaces with 10 or more individuals on all its campuses, due to a significant and sustained increase in COVID-19 positivity rates in Los Angeles County, as well as the increased infectiousness of the BA.2 subvariant. Please note that masks remain strongly recommended indoors regardless of gathering size, except when alone or while eating and drinking.
Reminder: Free Masks Available to Members of the LMU Community
LMU continues to provide N95 and surgical masks free of charge:
- Faculty and staff on the Westchester Campus may request an N95 or surgical mask from Environmental Health and Safety online.
- Students, faculty, staff, and visitors on the Westchester Campus may obtain surgical masks in Malone, VDA, University Hall, Campus Safety, Burns Rec Center, and the William H. Hannon Library.
- LMU resident students may obtain surgical masks in their residence halls.
- LLS students, faculty, and staff may obtain masks at the Information Center.
These protocols are subject to change as the university remains in alignment with changing guidance from public health authorities. For further information, please refer to the LMU Together A-Z Index.
*Masks are still required in specific indoor settings on campus where public health protocols require their continued use. Presently, the following areas require masks indoors: Student Health Services, Student Psychological Services, and the LMU shuttle. Other university departments or units are not authorized to set their own protocols.
Vaccines and Boosters Remain a Requirement on LMU’s Campuses
Vaccines and boosters continue to offer the strongest protection from severe illness and slowing the spread. If you recently received your COVID vaccine or booster, upload your documentation to the Vax LMU portal. You may now report additional doses (i.e. your second COVID booster, if applicable). As a reminder, those who are not up to date on their vaccines are required to test weekly.
