[January 6, 2022 | MENA, Ark.] Masks will be required in all indoor public spaces effective immediately due to the stark increase of positive COVID cases in the local area.

“We live in a small community and we must do what is in the best interest of our fellow colleagues, students, and communities. So, we are back to practicing social distancing whenever possible and reinstating a mask requirement effective now,” said Chancellor Dr. Phillip Wilson in an email to employees earlier today.

Dr. Wilson emphasized the administration’s commitment to make every effort to keep students in the classroom and not virtual and therefore, is taking every precaution. “I anticipate that the masking requirement will be determined on a weekly basis. That said, I do believe that we will be in masks, at a minimum, through January.”
