The group will discuss how the CDC’s guidelines, which have generally given institutions more leeway for mask mandates, should affect Pitt’s own masking protocols.
Pitt students go on spring break starting this week, and an announcement isn’t expected until after they return to campus at the earliest.
Other universities in the area have either already adjusted their plans or are in the process of doing so.
