GW Health: COVID-19

GW University Response

The University mask mandate will end February 27, 2023.  Wearing a mask will be optional in most university-owned or -operated facilities, with the following exceptions: masks will still be required for 10 days following a positive COVID-19 test and in university health care facilities, including the Student Health Center and the GW Medical Faculty Associates buildings. Masks are also still required in clinical spaces, which includes both the CLASS Center in Ross Hall and all GW MFA buildings, and in the gross anatomy lab. 

If you have questions about the masking policy in SMHS facilities, please contact  Hellen Olumilua ( and Sharon Boyd (
