Masks Must Be Worn at All Times

All people must wear a mask while on the Vanderbilt University Medical Center campus.

The Medical Center's break rooms and other similar areas, including the new MCE Lounge, are not mask free areas. Masks should always be worn unless you are eating or drinking.

Masks are required everywhere including:

  • Bathrooms
  • Breakrooms
  • Cafeterias
  • Elevators
  • Food Courts
  • Conference Rooms
  • Waiting Rooms
  • Outdoors
  • Masks should also be worn while walking outdoors to and from buildings and from parking areas.

Masks may be removed only if you are at your assigned workplace (office, cubicle, lab bench or desk) and can maintain at least 6 feet of distance from others OR to eat or drink (but you must stay in place and maintain 6 feet of distance from others).
