Bookstore Info and Updates

Need to know for the U of A Community and Bookstore shoppers

The university requires that all faculty, staff, students and visitors to all U of A campuses wear masks in all university indoor spaces — on its property, vehicles and leased spaces. This includes classrooms, labs, common areas in residences, libraries and meeting rooms. Occupants of leased properties may also be subject to additional policies and guidelines of the property’s owner or manager. It is deemed an additional and prudent measure.

The university has obtained a quantity of ASTM Level 3 Medical Masks for use by high traffic/occupancy work units. Please see Distribution Considerations for ASTM Medical Masks for information on how to order. There is no charge to the requesting unit.

Masks should be of high quality, well fitting and meet the specifications in the Face Mask FAQ.
