Effective Wednesday, Feb. 23, face coverings will be optional for all individuals on Auburn University’s campus. 

Face coverings must be worn by everyone in the following areas:

  • University Transportation Services, including Tiger Transit, as mandated by federal law.

Faculty members may require all individuals to continue wearing face coverings during their classes if the faculty member has a face coverings requirement in the course syllabus.
