LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – The University of Nebraska-Lincoln announced Friday that it will no longer be requiring masks inside buildings.

UNL updated its masking policy today after Health Director Pat Lopez announced that Lancaster County’s mask mandate will end at midnight.

Chancellor Ronnie Green said UNL will still encourage people to wear masks while indoors but will no longer require them.

Some classes may still require masking.  Students can go to their class syllabus to find out whether or not they require masking.

Green also said random mitigation testing will continue during the school year.

“This positive trend is thanks to your efforts, and I continue to be so incredibly proud of how our UNL community has pulled together during this pandemic,” Green said.

Today, LPS also announced that it will no longer require masks inside of its buildings.
