Heads up Members,

With direction from the University, we will not longer allow the following  masks with exhalation valves or vents into our facilities.

“These types of masks are designed to protect the wearer, and to make breathing easier for the individual, but do not reduce the spread of aerosols or airborne droplets as well as the standard cloth face coverings.  Our policy is consistent with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control regarding face masks. ”

(This type of mask is pictured below, the second image in the “Do Not Chooses Masks”  list.)
