Masks should be worn in indoor group settings, including classrooms, but not when alone in the office or when eating or drinking.

Vaccinated individuals do not need to wear masks outdoors or in their dorm room.

The UNM Gallup and Los Alamos sites are exempt from the indoor mask requirement. Unvaccinated people should wear masks everywhere.

This policy is based on CDC guidance and requires masks to be worn in counties where more than 7 new cases per 100,000 people are infected with the community on average over a 7-day period.

McKinley County has an average of 7 new cases per 100,000 people over a 7-day period. Los Alamos County has an average of 4 new cases per 100,000 people in 7 days.

89% of McKinley County’s population is fully vaccinated, the highest percentage in any county in the United States.

UNM masking policies are reviewed when relevant data such as community infections, test positive rates, and spread rates are being monitored.
