Mask Procedures: When and Where

Mask Procedures

As students return to campus from across the country, PCC is monitoring guidelines from federal, state, and local agencies and requiring the use of face masks to reduce community spread of COVID-19.

Upon arriving at campus, each student will receive two PCC face masks, although students are welcome to bring and use their own. During smart casual dress hours, masks should be plain or patterned with no writing or symbols with the exception of official PCC branding.

Disposable or cloth face masks that extend over the nose and mouth are required where social distancing is not possible. Masks should be worn in

  • Any shared space or high-traffic areas, such as the Commons and retail spaces
  • Lobbies of auditoriums, dining facilities, and residence halls
  • Hallways between classes
  • Stairways and elevators
  • Library and computer labs
  • Restrooms

We understand some students may not be able to wear a mask due to health reasons. Students with an exemption request may e-mail a doctor’s note to
