The South Dakota Board of Regents approved a policy this week that will require face masks be worn in most public areas on the six state university campuses.
Regents Executive Director Brian Maher says he has had a lot of input from the university presidents.
Maher says they will work with federal and state guidelines.
The policy uses a tiered approach, with level one the least restrictive, up to the most restrictive level four. Maher says he recommends a starting point.
Level three would require face masks in all public indoor areas on campuses.
