WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Starting Monday, August 2, Purdue will require face masks for all indoor spaces. According to a press release, it will apply to everyone on the Purdue University campus, including students, employees and visitors, regardless of vaccination status.
“We have a shared duty, part of the Protect Purdue Pledge, not only to preserve a manageable level of infection on campus so that we don’t have to suspend operations and interrupt our students’ education but also to protect our surrounding community by doing everything we can to lessen the stress on local health care infrastructure, especially hospital capacity,” said Dr. Esteban Ramirez, chief medical officer of the Protect Purdue Health Center.
