WACO, TX — Starting Wednesday, June 24, McLennan Community College will require face coverings to be worn at all times while on campus.

Along with face coverings, McLennan Community College will also require visitors to follow all social distancing protocols while on campus.

Accepted face coverings include homemade masks, scarfs, bandanas, handkerchiefs, or face shields, and must be worn over the nose and mouth.

Coverings must be worn in common campus areas, including classrooms, lobbies, lounges, dining halls, hallways, elevators, and common area bathrooms when in close proximity to others.

Face coverings are not required in the following situations: an employee is in her/his office alone, individuals working outdoors and maintaining proper physical distancing, when exercising outside or engaging in physical activity outside when doing so poses greater physical health, safety, or security risk, while operating outdoor equipment, while in a building or participating in an activity that requires security surveillance, screening, or identification and when consuming food or drink.

Employees, contractors, and visitors who cannot wear a face covering for medical or other reasons should contact Human Resources and students who say the same should contact the Accommodations office.
