Jefferson College reinstates Mask Mandate

(Jefferson County) Fall semester courses are set to get underway in less than two weeks at Jefferson College.

The college Board of Trustees held a special meeting last week to discuss reopening plans. College spokesman Roger Barrentine says mitigation strategies were discussed including face masks.

Even though face masks are required at the college in cases where distancing 6 feet cannot be met, Barrentine says there are those cases where you do not have to wear facial coverings.

Majority of fall classes get underway the week of August 23 at Jefferson College.
