Conn. (WWLP) – At all University of Connecticut campuses, face coverings are now required once again in all indoor instructional and working spaces. Masks will also be required for indoor events of more than 100 people.

As a result of rising cases of COVID-19 in Connecticut campuses, the mandate will remain in effect until the end of the semester.

“During the month of March and prior to that, the number of positive cases among students was also consistently low. Over the most recent seven-day reporting period, there were approximately 150 new positive cases both on- and off-campus,” shared university officials.
