Exceptions to Mask Requirements for ALL statuses (Red, Yellow, Green):
Gallaudet recognizes that traditional masks can be a barrier to communication for facial expressions, non-manual markers, and lipreading for our community members. Clear masks are available to all of our students, staff, and faculty. If you have not received yours, please go to the SLCC Atrium during Shild T3 testing times and request.
Questions may be sent to email@example.com.
Exceptions to Mask Requirements during Yellow and Green status:
An important note about respect
Each individual will monitor their own vaccination status and comply with the mask policy accordingly. Community members will not police mask usage, and will respect each other’s privacy by not inquiring about vaccination status and refraining from making assumptions based on their mask usage.
When masks are not required for those who are vaccinated (during green and yellow status), many will choose to continue wearing a mask for their own personal comfort, and the community is expected to support their choices.
All GU Community members will receive masks upon request at SLCC during testing hours:
How to use KN95/N95/KF94 masks:These masks may be rotated throughout the week, allowing them to air out in between use. They may be reused as long as they are clean, undamaged, and still retain their shape, for up to 10-20 uses. More masks are available upon request at SLCC during testing hours.
Care instructions for BendShape clear masks:Mask washing instructions
