"In May, COVID Safe Campus — which tracks mask policies in university-affiliated hospitals and health systems, according to its website — and COVID Advocacy Initiative/Mandate Masks US organized a week in May to advocate for keeping masks in healthcare settings."

"Last January, Griest Schwartzman started COVID Safe Campus, a group that advocates for increased COVID protections in higher education and other institutions and tracks masking policies at hospitals and universities across the country.
More recently, they’ve been working with members of a new group — COVID Safe Maryland — to urge hospitals to change their policies. Advocates fear the roll back of mask rules will lead to more people catching the virus, being hospitalized or dying from it, and developing long-term complications from the disease."
