Local News

VINCENNES, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Vincennes University says it will temporarily return to a campus mask mandate.

The policy takes effect at 8 a.m. on Friday, August 6.

All students, faculty, staff and visitors will be required to wear a mask or face covering in indoor spaces at all VU campuses and sites throughout Indiana.

VU says this change aligns with recommendations from the CDC and with practices at other Indiana colleges and universities.

The new policy will remain in effect for the foreseeable future.

VU says that masks and face coverings are not currently required outdoors, but they may be required in some cases at specific outdoor events where large crowds make social distancing impractical.
