Mask Reminder

Due to the high level of positive COVID-19 cases, some areas in Allegheny County are requiring masks indoors. As of today, Carlow University policy remains mask-optional on campus, except in The Campus Laboratory School and Early Learning Center where masking is required. As this trend continues to evolve, we are monitoring our strategy.
