Mask "recommended" indicates not mandatory. Am I interpreting that mandatory correctly? Masks are not mandatory for unvaccinated staff and students?

Need for flexible hybrid policy

Comment or issue submitted:

The last year has shown that staff can still be productive from home and that remote work has helped improve quality of work/life balance for many. Returning to campus will be great for in-person collaboration again, but there is still a significant benefit to staff if we can continue to work remotely at least one day a week. Many staff would benefit from a flexible hybrid policy (especially for those of us with a long commute or family needs at home) but are too afraid to ask if it is not a common university policy. There seems to be discussion about flexibility for students and faculty, but minimal information about what this flexibility will look like for staff. Is leadership considering a policy that would allow staff to opt-in to a permanent hybrid schedule?

Why isn't it mandatory for everyone to get vaccinated on campus? How will we know if were in the same room or walking by someone with out their vaccine?
