Personal Protection

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and State of Ohio and local health experts, face coverings help reduce the spread of COVID-19 by limiting other’s exposure to large aerosol droplets released by exhaling, speaking, singing, coughing, or sneezing.

Consistent with the July 3, 2020 order from the City of Dayton, the Governor's July 8, 2020 order for Montgomery County, and the June 23, 2020 Sinclair Board of Trustees Resolution #2020-115, all persons at all times, while on Sinclair property, are required to wear a face covering, with exceptions granted in accordance with Ohio Department of Health guidelines, or when working alone in a private workspace.

If you have a documented medical condition that aligns with the allowable CDC circumstances for not wearing a mask, please contact Human Resources (employees) at 937-512-2514 or the Accessibility Office (students) at 937-512-5113. While Sinclair works with you to find a solution, it is likely that you will be given an alternative assignment or work arrangement away from Sinclair campuses.

Masks must be worn outdoors when physical distancing of at least six feet cannot be achieved or maintained.

+ Will masks be provided?

All Sinclair employees and students will receive an initial face covering. Employees are required to furnish additional face coverings, which may be needed or desired. These face coverings may include cloth face masks, bandanas, or disposable masks.

Employees can obtain a mask from their supervisor or department chair. Faculty will have access to masks in each classroom for students that do not have them. SIOs will have masks at designated access points for those who come to campus without a mask.

+ What if I forget to bring my mask?

Do not come to campus without a mask. The mask requirement is for the safety of all Sinclair faculty, staff, students, and their families. It is important that this precaution be taken seriously by the entire Sinclair community.

SIOs will have masks at designated access points for those who come to campus without a mask.

Please see the CDC website for proper mask wearing and cleaning procedures.

+ What do I do if I see someone not wearing a mask or following other safety protocols?

Supervisors will address the issue if employees under their supervision fail to follow the mask policy.

Faculty and other Sinclair employees interacting directly with students will address the issue if students fail to follow the mask policy.
