MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — Spring Hill College has updated the school’s COVID-19 protocols and has lifted the mask mandate for vaccinated staff and students.

With COVID-19 cases decreasing in Mobile County and the surrounding counties, the college says starting on Monday, Nov. 1 masks will no longer need to be worn inside by vaccinated staff and students.

Those who are not vaccinated are told they should continue to wear masks indoors.

Two new rules that no longer require masks are:

  • No longer required for meetings, indoor activities, or in offices unless specified.
  • No longer required in any of the dining halls or the cafeteria.

Although the school has decided to lift the no masks required inside, there are still some places and situations that require masks. Those being:

  • Faculty may still require masks in their classrooms so students. (students should be prepared with a mask to follow instructor’s request)
  • Masks are still required for St. Joseph Chapel and Sodality Chapel. (applies not only for Mass or worship services but weddings and non-campus events)
  • Atheletic conferences still require masks to attend (adhere to current mask regulations for these events)
