How to Wear a Mask Correctly

See how to properly put on and take off a mask.

Amherst College requires face masks or covers to be worn on campus in all spaces inside and outside, with the exception of when alone in private personal offices. Make sure the mask covers your mouth and nose. Continue to keep a physical distance of at least six feet from individuals; a face cover is not a substitute for physical distancing.

Disposable, pleated filter face masks are available to students, faculty, and staff who are living or working on campus. Pick up masks at the Service Center at the Services/Police Building or at the Commissary at Schwemm’s in Keefe Campus Center.
