Now that CDC guidelines have changed to indicate that face masks are no longer required for vaccinated individuals in most situations, can we stop wearing masks in labs if we are vaccinated?

You must still wear your mask in research spaces, regardless of being vaccinated. Changes to Purdue’s mask policy will be campus-wide (i.e., not specific to those vaccinated v. not vaccinated) and a result of the campus population vaccination rate. The Protect Purdue Implementation Team intends to maintain the current mask policy throughout the summer, using this time to gather data on student, faculty, and staff vaccination status with the plan to use this data to assess the mask policy for the fall.
