Health and Safety.

We have been working with MSU Health and Safety and custodial teams to make sure the planetarium is safe for visitors to come back and learn about the night sky! Here is how we are keeping visitors and staff safe.

Masks are Not Required

As of March 6, 2022, masks will be considered optional for faculty, students, and staff in most indoor settings on all MSU campuses. However, masks are still required in instructional settings (including in all classrooms, academic labs and shared research spaces) during course instruction and research activities. Masks also are still required in health care facilities, such as Student Health Services and MSU Health Care locations.

Masks no longer are required in offices, dining halls, residence halls, IM facilities, computer labs and libraries, among other locations.
