Masks required again for NMU classes and labs


MARQUETTE, MI— Northern Michigan University is reinstating its mask mandate for classes and labs.

Marquette County was recently moved into the CDC’s high transmission category for COVID-19 because of the rising number of cases.

President Kerri Schuiling says although the CDC recommends wearing a mask in all indoor settings for high-transmission areas, NMU is only mandating masks for classrooms and labs starting Monday, August 1. Case numbers on campus remain moderate.

The university is encouraging people to wear a mask when indoors, but it remains a personal choice outside of close quarters like classes and labs.
