UPDATED: March 7, 2022

The St. Louis City mask mandate ended March 5th at 11:59 p.m.

The Department of Health strongly recommends you continue to wear a mask indoors, especially:

  • If you have, or are around people with, pre-existing medical conditions
  • If you are immunocompromised or around people who are immunocompromised
  • If you are at risk, or around someone at risk, for severe disease
  • If you are over 65 years old, or are around people who are over 65 years old
  • Around children under the age of 5, who are not eligible for vaccination and many of whom are unable to wear a mask
  • Around children (ages 5 – 11) who are not eligible for boosters
  • In congregate living facilities
  • In schools
  • At faith community gatherings
  • At social festivities

While masks will no longer be required by the City of St. Louis, any of our students or faculty/staff who wish to continue wearing them may do so. Some are ready for masks to go away but some also understandably still have concerns and will continue wearing them. Please be respectful of those making choices different from your own.
