George Mason University will start the semester as planned on Jan. 24 with a mix of hybrid, in-person and online classes.

Some public health officials are recommending a more substantial face covering than traditional cloth face covering to prevent the spread of the omicron variant.

Mason is committed to providing community members with mask options, and has ordered 180,000 N95 masks for the campus community, to be delivered in multiple shipments. The first batch of 35,000 is expected to arrive this week.
