UW Schools to Drop Mask Mandates… Maybe… Eventually…

Why wait?

The 26 University of Wisconsin System campuses will begin lifting masking requirements as soon as March 1 and no later than spring break, outgoing System President Tommy Thompson announced Wednesday.


Thompson pointed to campuses’ high vaccination rates and the current decline in COVID-19 case counts across Wisconsin as the reason for the decision.




UW-Madison announced Wednesday afternoon that it would end its mask order on March 12, which is the beginning of its spring break.  Dane County’s mask order is set to expire March 1.
