Face Covering Procedures

Per CDC guidance, face coverings are not required for anyone that is fully vaccinated. For anyone that is not fully vaccinated, face coverings and social distancing are highly recommended. The Tennessee Board of Regents recommends that individuals who have not been vaccinated do so as soon as possible.

  • Per TBR legal guidance, it is not permissible to ask individuals whether they have been vaccinated or request that they wear or remove a face covering.
  • According to the CDC, persons are considered fully vaccinated:
  • 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
  • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.
  • The Regional Center for Advanced Manufacturing will continue with screening protocols for students and staff as required for our industry partners.
