ATHENS — College students will be returning to campus in less than one month and Ohio University has announced they will reinstate mandatory masking indoors on its Athens campus as Covid-19 cases and hospitalizations cause high transmission rates throughout the state, our news partner WCPO at Cincinnati reports.
Masks will be required inside all indoor spaces on campus because Athens has moved to a high Covid-19 community level, according to the university.
Ohio University’s masking policy says when community spread is high, masks will be required. They are recommended at a medium level of community spread and optional when the spread is low.
Currently all Ohio University campuses are in areas with a high community spread, except their Eastern Campus in Belmont County and Lancaster Campus in Fairfield County, WCPO reports.
