Eastern updates mask mandate on sponsored transportation

Staff Report

Eastern has updated the mask mandate on Eastern sponsored public transportation to mask optional on Wednesday in alignment with the change in federal state’s policies for masks on public transportation announced Tuesday.

In an email sent out to students on Wednesday, University President David Glassman announced Eastern is no longer mandating masks on Eastern sponsored public transportation, like the Panther Shuttle.

Starting Wednesday, it is mask optional on Eastern sponsored public transportation.

Glassman reminded the Eastern community that “the University remains supportive of all students and employees who wish to continue their mask-wearing practices in EIU facilities, in University vehicles, or on campus grounds.”
