Tufts requires that all individuals wear masks indoors, including in offices, conference rooms, classrooms, laboratories, studios, libraries, dining halls, and residences. Masks do not need to be worn indoors when alone or when eating; however, social distancing is strongly encouraged while eating or drinking. For more information on face mask requirements, visit https://coronavirus.tufts.edu/healthy-at-tufts.

We encourage you to work with the Tufts Office of Equal Opportunity (OEO) if you have questions or concerns about wearing a mask or cloth face covering in your Tufts workplace. In many situations, OEO has already found acceptable and safe adaptations, alternatives and accommodations for those individuals who are unable to wear a mask or cloth face covering because of a physical or mental impairment or sincerely held religious belief. OEO will engage in an interactive dialogue with you in order to increase your feasibility of wearing a mask or cloth face covering safely in your workplace with the goal of reducing the risk of spreading COVID-19 across Tufts University.
