You’ll need a mask when on the ACC campus this fall.

The college’s board of trustees updated their COVID-19 pandemic plan on Tuesday night, wherein the decision was made for masks to return to campus.

According to President John Masterson, the policy was reinstated “mainly because of the surge in the delta variant” along with increasing cases across the state and region.
