Mask Guidelines

A message from Scott Burnotes

May 18, 2020

Mayor Bowser's latest stay at home extension directs essential businesses to require their employees and contractors to wear masks. Businesses must also instruct employees how to do so safely.

To comply with this order, GW wants to reiterate to all employees and contractors that masks are required to be worn on campus when you are in public spaces, in our buildings, and walking around campus. When there is a possibility that you may encounter other people, you need to be wearing a mask or have your face covered. GW shared a video on safe mask usage in April.

Please continue monitor our GW COVID-19 website for all the latest up-to-date information on the university’s response, and contact 1-855-GWU-INFO (855-498-4636) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for any questions regarding university operations. 

Thank you for your hard work and dedication during these challenging times.

Raise High!
