Other qualified exceptions:
For purposes of this policy, acceptable face coverings include disposable or cloth face masks that cover the mouth and nose as well as face shields that cover the eyes, nose and mouth and extend below the chin. Other specific devices, such as N95 respirators, may be applicable in certain healthcare or laboratory settings, and in those cases, individuals utilizing such devices will be considered in compliance with this policy.
As with all University policies, failure by employees to comply may be considered insubordination, which may result in disciplinary action up to and including termination.
