What consequences do students and employees face if they refuse to wear a mask or face covering on campus?
Failure of students to comply with the University’s Student Code of Conduct regarding personal protective equipment (PPE), such as masks and face coverings, may result in the following: written warning, meeting with the Office of Student Conduct, educational requirements, residence hall probation, deferred removal from residence halls, University probation, removal from course/s, campus ban in designated areas, removal from residence halls, deferred suspension, suspension and expulsion. For more information, see the Masks/Approved Face Coverings section of the Student Health and Safety Policies.
Failure by employees to follow these safety protocols may result in counseling and/or disciplinary action — up to and including termination of employment — in accordance with WVU Board of Governors (BOG) Talent and Culture Rule 3.8 and BOG Faculty Rule 4.2.
