What is the masking policy for in-person human subjects research?

At all Penn State locations except the College of Medicine, Penn State Health and other facilities/buildings with specific masking requirements, masking is optional for in-person human subjects research that recruits healthy participants, as of March 23. For studies recruiting high-risk participants (as defined by the CDC), masking continues to be required for both participants and study team members at all indoor locations.
