Visitor Expectations & Compliance Process for the use of Face Coverings

May 20, 2021

Updated Face Covering Directive

The University of Arizona has updated its Administrative Directive on Face Coverings in light of changing public health conditions in Southern Arizona and updated guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Pima County. The directive applies to all faculty, staff, students, designated campus colleagues, and visitors to the University of Arizona campuses or locations. 

Visit UArizona's Face Coverings page for detailed information regarding locations where face coverings are required regardless of vaccination status, and guidance for both vaccinated and non-vaccinated individuals.



Prior to coming to any UArizona facilities for events or other activities, visitors must monitor their own health for any coronavirus symptoms (as described by the CDC) and perform a daily screening using Wildcat WellCheck before coming to any UArizona facilities or events.

Visitors must stay home and do not come to any UArizona facilities or events if they have symptoms of COVID-19, a recent positive test for COVID-19, or direct exposure to someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19.  Visitors are strongly encouraged to contact their healthcare provider if they feel unwell.

When visitors come to UArizona facilities for events or other activities, they must: 

1.    Wear a face covering as required by the University of Arizona’s Administrative Directive on Face Coverings.

2.    Maintain appropriate physical distance in accordance with CDC guidance and follow UArizona signage and instructions.

3.    Understand that for ticketed events access may be revoked if ticket-holders do not comply with signage or UA staff instructions.  A ticket is a revocable license.



Failure of visitors to UArizona facilities and events to follow the University’s safety and health requirements may result in being asked to leave the UArizona site or to have access revoked.
