Cornell AAP is following the university's masking policy. The choice to wear a face mask is a personal one, and no one should be made to feel uncomfortable because of their choice. It is well established that wearing a mask while indoors reduces the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19. Individuals who are concerned about the risk of infection are encouraged to continue to wear a mask, and we ask that all members of our community support and respect one another's masking choices. Vaccination remains the best protection against serious illness and we urge those who have not yet been vaccinated or boosted to do so.
Please adhere to Cornell University's COVID-19 guidelines. Stay informed at covid.cornell.edu.
