6. Why do I have to wear a mask/face covering while on campus?
All Pennsylvanians are required to wear a mask as mandated by Governor Tom Wolf’s order when in businesses (including college campuses).
From the CDC: Masks and cloth face coverings may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others. Wearing a cloth face covering will help protect people around you, including those at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19 and workers who frequently come into close contact with other people (e.g., in stores, on campus and restaurants). Cloth face coverings are most likely to reduce the spread of COVID-19 when they are widely used by people in public settings. The spread of COVID-19 can be reduced when cloth face coverings are used along with other preventive measures, including social distancing, frequent handwashing, and cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces.

Manor students are expected to bring their own face masks/coverings to campus. Should a student forget their mask, students can go to the receptionist desk on the first floor of the Basiliead Manor building to receive a mask.

Manor staff are expected to bring their own face masks/coverings to campus.
