TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Cloth masks will no longer meet the University of Arizona and Pima Community College’s face covering requirement, officials announced on Wednesday, Jan. 5.

According to news releases from the schools, students will be required to wear surgical or higher grade masks, including KN95, N95, KF94 and N99 in all indoor spaces where it is not possible to continuously maintain social distance.

UArizona officials said surgical masks or those of a higher grade are required inside the McKale Center, and will be provided upon entry to anyone who doesn’t have one. Such masks are also required in any building where patients or human research subjects are seen in person, in locations where protective equipment has always been worn and inside any public transportation provided by the university.
