Per https://research.ncsu.edu/coronavirus, the AIF no longer requires face masks in the labs.
In response to recent improvements in pandemic conditions across Wake County and North Carolina, and in alignment with new guidance provided by the UNC System Office, beginning March 7 face coverings will be optional in most campus indoor locations, including classrooms and other instructional settings.
Although face coverings will no longer be required in most campus spaces, all university community members are encouraged to continue wearing them indoors, especially in instructional settings.
