As always, PCM considers the guidance of local, state, and federal public health agencies as well as best practices adopted in local schools and peer organizations. As such, we continue to strongly recommend indoor masking while on campus and, although it is no longer a requirement, we encourage all eligible students to be vaccinated, and all members of the PCM community to receive any boosters for which they are eligible.
