Dear Colleagues,

The success of our planning to expand education and research at the MBL rests with each member of the campus community consistently taking steps to help keep themselves and our community safe.

This is a reminder that everyone is expected to wear a face covering over the nose and the mouth at all times while in MBL buildings, with narrow exceptions. Individuals can remove face coverings if they are in a private room/office alone with the door shut or while eating indoors with at least 8 feet of social distance in designated breakrooms. Face coverings must also be worn outside while on MBL grounds when others are within 6 feet.

Please refer to the Guidance on Using Masks in MBL Work Areas for specific guidelines. If you have any questions of concerns, please contact Eric Jensen (EHS Manager) at 508-289-7424 or by email at

Thank you,

Paul Speer
Chief Operating Officer
