Purdue University announced Thursday that masks will no longer be mandated in a number of indoor spaces for those who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, starting July 1.
Those spaces will include offices, dining areas, libraries, lobbies, and the France A. Córdova Recreational Sports Center.
Masks will still be required for everyone in classroom settings, and unvaccinated individuals must continue masking inside in any space. Those who haven’t received a COVID-19 vaccine and go without a mask will be considered in violation of the Protect Purdue Pledge.
On Wednesday, Purdue’s athletics department announced that -- with the sign-off of the Tippecanoe County Board of Health -- upcoming home football and volleyball games at Ross-Ade Stadium and Holloway Gymnasium would be at 100% capacity, with no masks or social distancing required.
COVID vaccinations for Purdue’s students, faculty, and staff continue to be encouraged, but not mandated.
