Mask Usage Policy. In accordance with current CDC recommendations, Rose State College encourages all members of the campus community to wear a mask while indoors, regardless of vaccination status. However, in accordance with SB 658, Rose State College does not mandate or require the use of masks to receive service.

Recent recommendations from medical experts suggest that multilayer masks, such as N-95s or KN-95s, may be better at slowing transmission. The College strongly recommends these types of masks over cloth-based varieties.


Individuals with concerns about wearing a face covering due to a disability should contact the appropriate office.
