Montana State University says students, employees ‘need’ to wear masks, but stops short of a mandate

Montana State University issued a stronger message urging people on campus to wear masks indoors but again stopped short of mandating face coverings ahead of the Aug. 25 start to the semester.


MSU President Waded Cruzado in a letter sent to students, parents, faculty and staff on Tuesday evening urged them to voluntarily wear masks “because it is needed — not because it is mandated or required.”
