Johnson County Community College now requires masks in some areas on camps


OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Johnson County Community College is the latest metro college to announce a mask requirement on campus.

The mandate started August 17, 2021, and requires everyone on campus to wear masks while indoors. People who are alone in private offices are not required to wear a face covering.

The college said it was working to update signs across campus to remind visitors about the mask mandate.
