2/28/22: Mask requirements still in effect

UB leadership is in consultation with SUNY and the Erie County Department of Health about mask requirements on UB’s three campuses.

The move comes following Gov. Kathy Hochul’s decision to lift the mask mandate in K-12 schools effective March 2.

Decisions about whether to relax mask requirements at UB will be made in collaboration with SUNY and the county health department based on CDC guidance and on the prevalence of the virus at the university and within the local community.  

Any changes to UB's guidelines will be promptly communicated to the university community. For now, the university will continue to require masking indoors at UB and on UB buses in accordance with our current guidelines.
