Alpena Community College students and staff required to wear masks

ALPENA, Mich. — Students attending Alpena Community College (ACC) this fall will have to wear masks.  The mandate requires face coverings for all students and staff while inside campus buildings.  Dr. Don MacMaster said the college based the mandate on guidance from local and national health experts.

“I hope people see it as a reasonable move,” said Dr. MacMaster.  “We did it last fall and I think it allowed us to have face-to-face-instruction safely,” he said.

Dr. MacMaster said he hopes the mask mandate is temporary.  Fall classes at ACC begin Monday, Aug. 30.
