**Updated 8/2/21 – Eight Puget Sound region health departments issued a statement recommending everyone wear masks indoors, regardless of vaccination status, as did Gov. Inslee and the CDC. Our own campus public health advisors have also reviewed and endorsed their recommendation. The University of Washington is now strongly recommending everyone, regardless of vaccination status, wear a face covering indoors in areas where they are not already required.

IMA Facility Access Reservations are NO longer required to access the IMA.

  • Face coverings are required for unvaccinated individuals per the updated guidelines from the University.
