From BU Today: Boston University’s Mask Mandate to End, with Exceptions
- March 7: Masking at BU becomes optional except for classrooms, the BUS, and health facilities.
- COVID-testing for on-campus employees becomes optional that day, too.
- Those who opt to continue masking and testing may do so.
March 7 will be a bigger date than just the Monday of spring break. It will also mark the end of Boston University’s masking mandate, which has been in place since the arrival of the coronavirus almost two years ago, except in classrooms and certain other venues. The University is weighing a decision to lift the classroom mask mandate effective April 4.
BU will also end mandatory COVID-19 testing on Monday, March 7, for employees who come to campus, as well as proof-of-vaccination requirements at entertainment events and fitness centers open to the BU community and the public. (The University will continue to make COVID testing available for employees who want it or need to test after a close contact experience. People with COVID symptoms can schedule tests at BU’s Health Services Annex in the back of Agganis Arena.)
