Free surgical masks are available at the entrance of every building, according to the school, and a limited number of KN95s are available in Main Campus buildings. MORE LOCAL HEADLINES"We will continue to monitor the situation and may have to make adjustments to our masking and other policies later in the semester depending on conditions, but for now, let’s be respectful to each other and take care of ourselves," the school said. Meanwhile, the Temple Association of University Professionals (TAUP) shared a statement saying it "does not agree with the university's decision on masks." They claim the decision was made without "meaningful consultation" with faculty or staff. TAUP is requesting that Temple allow instructors the option to require masking in their classrooms and teaching spaces.In accordance with Philadelphia's vaccine mandate on institutions of higher education, Temple students and staff are still required to have at least the original COVID-19 series.
