FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Purdue Fort Wayne has extended the face mask requirement through Monday, Jan. 31, 2022.

Face masks are required inside campus buildings and structures through that date and includes all students, faculty, staff and visitors regardless of their vaccination status.

The university cited the rapid rise in cases across Northeast Indiana and the emergence of the Omicron variant as the reasons for the extension of the mask mandate in an update to the campus community Monday.

The mask requirement will be revisited in January.

Reason!?!…why do you need a reason? You have been telling students for the last 2 years that you are the authority and everyone is not allowed to think for themselves.

You are academia and should never provide a reason especially when it doesn’t make sense or follow science…just makes you look stupid

If the mask protocol worked why isn’t it working?

Masking up is conditioning so we will OBEY more strict life protocols. Our liberty is GONE!

Do not live you life in a state of fear. Fear is being used to control us.

yes the university is requiring masks to gain control of students! It starts with the masks and ends with total world domination!!! Or…the school is just trying to prevent Covid spread in any way they can…
