COVID-19 infections and exposure reports have risen at the University of Maryland, Baltimore over the last month. We expected some increase when we loosened our protective measures, but the BA.2 variant is contributing to a more rapid spread.
For the time being, please use good judgment and consider wearing a mask indoors while at UMB, and please consider doing the same while in indoor areas in the community.
If you need masks:
- Baltimore: KN95 and medical masks are available at the guard's desk in the main lobby.
- USG: Students can pick up KN95 masks from Open Lab in I-214. Employees can pick up masks from Forjet Williams' office, 101-G.
