Each conversation started with the same question: “Why do you wear a mask?” One theme united the responses: a commitment to protecting one another.
Less than two days ago, Princeton administrators described a universal mask mandate as a possibility that “remains to be seen.” Today, the University implemented exactly that: an indoor mask mandate for all vaccinated and unvaccinated students, faculty, and staff.
Partially backtracking on guidance issued last month, the University will require unvaccinated students, faculty, and staff to wear masks indoors on campus this fall.
The University will permit unrestricted domestic travel for the fall semester and Wintersession, according to a Wednesday email to students from Associate Provost for International Affairs and Operations Aly Kassam-Remtulla.

The University will eliminate multiple public health guidelines related to COVID-19, including the requirement that students, faculty, and staff wear face coverings, beginning July 4. Most other restrictions will be lifted by the start of the fall semester.
The University will require all employees to submit proof of a COVID-19 vaccination prior to arriving on campus for the fall semester, according to a June 8 announcement.
