CARTERVILLE, Ill. (KFVS) - School leaders at John A. Logan College suggest masks be worn on campus.

On Wednesday, July 28, the college said they will keep a combination of face-to-face and hybrid classes during the fall semester.

“We are determined to maintain our plan for the fall semester,” said Dr. Kirk Overstreet, president of JALC. “Through the use of masks, social distancing, and proper hygiene, we are striving to provide a safe working environment for all.”

School leader say they have taken additional measures to keep the campus clean and disinfected by reactivating the COVID Coordinator position, preparing classrooms to comply with COVID-19 protocols, adding sanitation stations and making masks available in all classrooms.

Also, all public areas, including classrooms, will be sanitized each evening.

Overstreet said, currently, all counties in the college’s district are considered a substantial risk for the Delta variant.

“To maximize protection from the Delta variant and prevent possibly spreading it to others, we will follow the suggestions of both the CDC and IDPH and suggest that all individuals on campus wear a mask regardless of vaccination status,” he said.

The John A. Logan College COVID Taskforce is scheduled to meet Thursday, July 29 at 1 p.m.

The ICCB leadership will also be meeting on Thursday at 2 p.m.
