Due to the decrease in active Covid cases in our service area counties and the state, Ozarka College will lift its face mask requirement effective immediately. While masks will be optional in all buildings on our campuses, individual faculty members reserve the right to require masks for certain classes and/or activities for the safety of students and faculty alike. Masks and distancing are still encouraged as individual health conditions dictate.
The decision comes after the Ozarka administration team met to review local COVID statistics and determine appropriate protocols with regard to the health and safety of all students, staff, faculty and visitors.
The College administration will continue to closely monitor local infection rates among other state and local data. Ozarka will adjust protocols in accordance with COVID indicators.
