MAYHEW, Miss. (WTVA) — School administrators at one community college are preparing to welcome its students back to campus in August.
East Mississippi Community College Vice President of Instruction Dr. James Rush said students will come back to campus for in-person instruction on August 17.
He said the task force for the college is discussing the best plan to keep its students and faculty safe during the coronavirus pandemic.
Rush said task force members are considering whether to require everyone to wear face masks on campus, set up sanitation stations outside of classrooms and require students to sanitize before entering and leaving the classroom.
Rush said they’re also discussing flexible schedules for students to attend in-person or online classes.
The fall semester at EMCC will end the last week of November, said Rush.
However, administrators are making new courses for students to take between the fall and spring semesters.
Rush said final plans for the semester will be revealed in July.
