Wright State University has distributed over 10,000 face coverings to students, faculty and staff since Fall Semester began on Aug. 24.
The university requires face covering in all buildings and also outside when people are within six feet distance from each other.
Free masks were distributed at ‘Turning Points,” the front entrance of the Student Union and at Dunbar Library for anyone who forgot their mask when they arrived on campus.
“We realized that we should have them available for students so that wouldn’t happen,” said Kathy Engisch, interim dean of College of Science and Mathematics.
Wright State President Sue Edwards has been walking around campus and distributing hundreds of masks on her own. “She has set up a condition and a culture here that she cares about all of us,” said Engisch.
Masks with the Wright State biplane logo are available for purchase in vending machines around campus for $2.25.
