Socorro County is considered an area of substantial COVID-19 transmission. Effective Tuesday, August 3, NMT is requiring all students, faculty and staff to wear a mask in public indoor settings on New Mexico Tech property, including off campus offices. This expectation applies to all individuals, whether vaccinated or unvaccinated, unless they are alone in an office, lab, classroom, or residence hall room.
Please note that this announcement supersedes all previous guidelines on campus and signage may not reflect the current situation. See the NMT COVID-19 page for more information.
The NMT COVID-19 Task Force and I will continue to monitor the guidance from the Governor’s Office, the NMDOH, and the CDC and update our COVID-19 requirements as conditions change.
