The mask requirement is updated as data points change, allowing for quick responses. The status will be displayed with the following icons on MyGallaudet. Whereas the campus may be in one status (e.g., GREEN), certain buildings may be in yellow or red. Please adhere to signs posted in those buildings (e.g., Student Health Services (SHS), Ballard North Lobby, etc.)

When masks are not required (during green and yellow status), many choose to continue wearing a mask for their own personal comfort, and the community is expected to support their choices.

Mask resources:

At SHS, people can pick up Bendshape masks (5 per bag; are washable), N95s, KN95s, KN94s, and swag bags. 

  • Swag bags have masks, thermometers, hand sanitizer, and hand wipes.
  • Swag bags/Bendshapes can be picked up on a monthly basis.
  • Masks can be picked up on a weekly basis (you get 5 masks per pick up.)
