Amarillo College says that it will replace its campus-wide mask mandate with a masks-optional policy beginning on Monday, April 26.
AC said it had delayed compliance with Governor Greg Abbotts’ ruling, when he lifted the statewide mask mandate, only long enough to give students, faculty, and staff an opportunity to get fully vaccinated if they wanted it.
AC said it partnered with Walgreens Pharmacy and served as a host site for vaccine clinics on the Washington Street Campus to aid the process of vaccinations.
Masks, however, must be worn at the College’s Spring Commencement on May 14 at Hodgetown Stadium, which mandates that all who enter wear face coverings said AC.
