Owens Community College will require face coverings for everyone, regardless of vaccination status, in indoor public settings on our campuses. The College recognizes that Hancock County remains in the moderate transmission category; however, in an effort to protect our community, this mask requirement applies to both Owens campuses. The mask mandate includes hallways, reception areas, classrooms, laboratories, libraries, while using college transportation, and other gathering spaces. Face coverings are not required when working alone in an office or classroom, when eating or drinking, or when actively exercising indoors. Face masks are available at the Department of Public Safety (DPS).
