Do I need to wear a mask and maintain social distancing off campus or in the neighborhood near UWM?

September 15, 2020

UWM strongly encourages members of the UWM community to wear masks or face coverings whenever 6 feet of social distance cannot be maintained, including while off campus and while walking/traveling to campus.

Public health authorities have determined that consistent use of face coverings can be effective in limiting the spread of COVID-19. The City of Milwaukee and other local municipalities require the use of face coverings, as do several states.
