The University of Maryland is giving away two free face coverings to students as part of its efforts “4 Maryland” to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
Today and tomorrow from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., students can pick up masks from tents outside of three locations: the Physical Sciences Complex, Tawes Plaza and Xfinity Center.
From Sept. 16 to 25, students who have not already done so can get masks from the welcome desk at the Visitor Center in Turner Hall, the Stamp Student Union information desk and the Eppley Recreation Center’s membership services desk during their business hours.
Students received an email on Sept. 8 that included a barcode to claim their masks. Students can pick up masks on behalf of others if they bring the unique barcode email for each individual.
Students living in residence halls received their masks during move-in.
Face coverings play a critical role in UMD’s efforts to keep students, faculty and staff safe from COVID-19. This semester, anyone on campus will be required to wear a face covering at all times indoors, and outdoors when others are nearby.
Maryland Today is produced by the Office of Strategic Communications for the University of Maryland community weekdays during the academic year, except for university holidays.
