Governor Pritzker lifted the mandate requiring face coverings to be worn on public transportation. Effective immediately, face masks are not required on the Huskie Bus Line, but riders are welcome to wear them voluntarily. (4/20/22)
NIU continues to require masks in the following circumstances and/or locations:
- Faculty members can require masks be worn in their teaching spaces
- Surveillance testing locations
- Northwestern Medicine Student Health Clinic
- NIU health clinics
Huskies are also expected to wear masks at the request of individuals when meeting in the personal work or living spaces of those individuals.
Masks will be optional in all other settings. Any member of the NIU community who prefers to continue to mask is welcome and encouraged to do so.
