Auburn University will now require that all students wear masks while they are indoors or outdoors on campus.
In an email sent to students, faculty and staff, the University said that the only exceptions to this rule will be designated areas or for approved medical reasons.
This policy will be effective on Wednesday, Aug 19.
Previously, the University had only required that students wear masks while inside buildings on campus.
This policy change was announced on Auburn's second day back to campus.
