The University of Missouri Board of Curators extended the UM System's mask requirements Monday but the issue isn't fully decided.

The curators approved an extension through Oct. 15 that includes mask exemptions for vaccinated people at certain public events. Masks are still required for everyone in classrooms where social distancing isn't possible.

Some curators have reservations about the exemption and the honor system used to enforce it, leaving open the possibility of another vote in the future.

  1. Since the vaccines do not prevent infection, nor do they prevent transmission, and so the vaccinated spread the virus just as readily as the unvaccinated, why should they be exempt?
