Vaccinated Individuals and Face Coverings

July 29, 2021:

  • Mask WearingUpdated Mask Guidance for the NMSU System

In alignment with updated guidance from the CDC and recommendations from New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, masks will be required beginning Monday, Aug. 2, at all indoor NMSU system locations and offices around the state when social distancing to maintain six feet of distance between individuals is not possible. This includes our Las Cruces, Doña Ana Community College, Alamogordo, Grants, and Carlsbad campuses.

This indoor mask requirement applies to all classrooms, labs, meeting rooms, vehicles, and other spaces, and to all faculty, staff, students, and visitors to NMSU campuses and offices, regardless of vaccination status.

  • Unvaccinated individuals must continue to wear face coverings and practice social distancing in all indoor and some outdoor situations.
  • The Daily Health Screening Form is no longer required. Self-monitoring for symptoms is required and any symptoms should follow the reporting process immediately. It is also required for unvaccinated individuals to report contact/exposure with COVID-19 positive individuals.

NOTE:  The COVID-19 report form is still active for these reporting reasons and can be found here: COVID-19 Report Form 

We encourage all faculty and staff who will be on campus in person to get vaccinated and support the health and safety of our DACC and the local community.  DACC offers free vaccine clinics at our East Mesa and Espina Campuses (see schedule below) or NMSU offers vaccinations Monday – Friday at the Aggie Health and Wellness Center.
