As of Thursday, masks are mandatory on all Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College campuses due to rising COVID-19 cases in the region. The decision was voted on by Southern’s COVID-19 Task Force.
All students must wear masks in classrooms, hallways, and all other public areas of buildings on campus.
Students and staff are asked to monitor their condition and not to come to campus if experiencing symptoms or if there is a possible exposure.
Anyone positive for COVID must receive a negative test result at least seven days after exposure or quarantine for fourteen days before returning to campus. Test results must be sent to Joe Linville, Southern’s Chief Facilities Management Officer at Joe.Linville@southernwv.edu before returning.
Southern encourages students to receive a COVID vaccine through their primary care physician, pharmacy, or local health department.
