Regardless of vaccination status, well-fitted face coverings remain required in all MIT buildings except:

  • When eating or drinking
  • When alone in a fully enclosed space
  • When with podmates or in gatherings of fully vaccinated groups within residential buildings

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts continues to require that face coverings be worn in specific spaces on our campus, including at MIT Medical (including testing facilities) and on MIT shuttle buses. Face coverings are not required outdoors.

MIT’s Office of Environment, Health, and Safety (EHS) has more information about face coverings, gloves, and other personal protective equipment (PPE).
