Effective July 20, 2020, Brewton-Parker College will require all faculty, staff, students, and visitors to wear an appropriate mask or other face covering while inside campus facilities or buildings, as well as in outside areas on campus where six feet social distancing may not always be possible. Face covering use will be in addition to and not a substitute for social distancing. Acceptable masks or face coverings must cover at least the nose, mouth, and chin.
Masks or face coverings are not required in one’s own dorm room or suite, when alone in an enclosed office or study room, or in campus outdoor settings where social distancing requirements are met. However, in dormitories and other buildings, masks must be worn in common areas.
Anyone not using a mask or face covering when required will be asked to comply immediately or to leave classrooms or other areas until compliance can be satisfied. Repeated refusal to comply with this requirement may result in discipline through the applicable code of conduct for faculty, staff or students.
Reasonable accommodations may be made for those who are unable to wear a face covering for documented health reasons. Such accommodations will be granted and recognized only upon application to the office of the provost.
