Physical/Social Distancing

Maintaining space between you and people outside your household is one of the best ways to avoid exposure to and to slow the spread of COVID-19.

People who are asymptomatic can spread the virus before they know they’re sick.

With some exceptions, physical distancing guidelines at Mason require that members of the community:

  • Maintain 6 feet separation (approximately two arm lengths) from other people when possible.
  • Avoid large groups.
  • Configure workspaces to allow for physical separation of at least 6 feet between desks, workstations, computer terminals, individual study areas, etc.
  • Consider moving or removing equipment, furniture, and workstations to allow for physical separation.
  • Reconfigure shared offices to allow physical distancing between occupants.

The CDC’s Social Distancing site features additional information on physical distancing.
