All concerning the IU Bloomington: Information on the IU: Indiana College
Summer is a popular time for incoming students and their families to tour the IU Bloomington campus, and other visitors to explore popular spots like the Indiana Memorial Union and Wells Library. However, everyone on campus – including current students, faculty, and staff – must continue to follow the IU’s mask guidelines until the fall semester health and safety guidelines come into effect on August 1st.
There are signs in the library and at the IMU to remind users of the current mask requirement.
The confusion over the IU’s summer policy is due in part to the fact that the Monroe County’s Department of Health lifted its order to wear masks and social distancing, and those who are fully vaccinated and think they no longer need to wear a mask, said IMU and library officials.
