UF updated its mask policy to require face-coverings outdoors on UF and UF Health property, effective immediately.
“If two or more people are within 6 feet of each other outdoors they must wear a mask or cloth face covering,” the policy states.
The only exceptions to the policy are private offices, workspaces and outdoor spaces where a physical distance of 6 feet can be maintained at all times, according to an email from UF Public Affairs sent to all UF students Monday afternoon.
UF’s previous policy mandated face-coverings inside of all UF buildings, on shuttles and RTS buses, at all times, with an exception for children less than 2 years old. These requirements are still in effect.
