Subject: Pratt Ends Masking Requirement

Dear Pratt Community,

Pratt Institute’s senior administration and the Post Pandemic Remobilization Operations (PPRO) task force are pleased to announce that, effective immediately, wearing a mask is no longer required anywhere on Pratt’s campuses, including in instructional spaces.

Mask wearing is still strongly encouraged and, as a community, we respect and support those who choose to wear a mask. Community members are also strongly encouraged to test if they are experiencing symptoms of the virus or have been exposed to someone with COVID, and to stay home if they are sick.

Pratt will continue to follow guidance from the CDC, as well as city, state, and federal directives, and may revise our current policy if circumstances require.

We thank all members of our community for their sustained cooperation, vigilance, and care for one another throughout this pandemic, and ask that you continue to support our efforts to keep our community safe.


Donna Heiland, Provost
Cathleen Kenny, Vice President for Finance and Administration
Delmy Lendof, Vice President for Student Affairs
