2/22/2022: Update on Masking in Residence Halls/Visitation Policy

You are welcome to continue to wear a mask if you desire, but they will no longer be mandated in W&M Residence Halls.

We’ve included the excerpt from the notice below:

Masks Optional in On-Campus Student Residences  Effective Wednesday, February 23, W&M will move to “masks optional” in public spaces in residence halls. Although masks have been optional in individual dorm rooms or apartments the entire academic year, this change will allow all on-campus students the flexibility that off-campus students have to determine when or if they wear masks in their residence halls. We continue to welcome masks in residence halls for anyone who chooses to wear one and encourage all to be mindful of one another’s comfort levels. Masking remains an effective way to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 as well as a host of other diseases, including colds and flu.  

It is important to note that this change only applies to student residences. W&M continues to require indoor masking in all shared, non-living spaces, including all classrooms, labs, shared offices, recreational facilities, meeting spaces and indoor hallways, except when actively eating or drinking.

Following this announcement Residence Life's restriction on non-W&M visitors in residence halls will be lifted on Wednesday February 23 as well. Beginning today you may have family and friends unaffiliated with W&M visit your residence hall. All visitors must be escorted, and you must follow all other guest and visitation policies.

We welcome these initial transitions as W&M continues to monitor trends and adjust protocols accordingly.
