Morris Brown College, based in Atlanta, has made the decision to reimpose its COVID mask mandate for the coming two weeks.
The move reportedly comes as a response to the detection of positive COVID cases within the Atlanta University Center, a prominent institution within the city.
A formal announcement shared on the college’s official Instagram account outlined the updated protocols that will remain in effect for the next 14 days.
“All students and employees will be required to wear face masks,” the college stated on Instagram.
The college further called for students to practice physical distancing. It also cancelled all “large gatherings” and events for the next two weeks.
“Compliance with college-initiated contact tracing efforts is expected,” the statement also said.
