COVID-19 Information

Campuses are open 8am to 5pm Monday through Friday. Fayette Campus will remain closed on Fridays.

Beginning on Monday August 9, Southern State Community College will once again require all employees, students, and visitors to properly wear a mask while inside one of our buildings regardless of vaccination status. You are not required to wear a mask if you are working in an office by yourself, when presenting, when eating or drinking, or have a medically qualified mask exemption on file. Of course each additional precaution of hand-washing, maintaining safe physical distancing, and staying home when ill remain extremely important.

The decision to revise the campus mask policy is based on compliance with the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This guidance recommends that people in counties experiencing substantial or high transmission rates, along with low vaccination rates, mask while indoors regardless of vaccination status. Because the Delta variant can be transmitted by fully vaccinated people to others, masking adds another layer of protection for employees, students, and visitors. We will closely monitor our counties' transmission and vaccination rates. As those rates improve, along with improving vaccination rates among our general public, we hope to be able to once again revert to that maskless environment we all enjoyed.

When combined with masking, the vaccine remains the most effective tool to prevent the spread of COVID-19. If you have not yet been vaccinated, we strongly encourage you to do so. It is widely available now.
