Help us spread the word.

For me. For you. For all of us.

You’ve shown us your resilient spirit, and it’s more important than ever to rally together to slow the spread of COVID-19. No matter where you are, stay the course and wear a mask, physically distance and wash your hands.


Coach James Franklin, Penn State alum and HGTV personality John Colaneri, and others share why they mask up and the importance of protecting our campuses and communities.



Follow #MaskUpOrPackUp to see who’s masking up for our community.


Do your part to keep our communities safe.

As Penn Staters, we care about and look out for one another. The time is now to keep masking up and continuing to do the right thing for the greater community.
