A refresher on masks
September 2, 2020
The streets of Alva have been much busier since the arrival of university students. Classes began Aug. 17. Everyone is hopeful those in-person classes can continue, both in public school and higher education.
Schools are taking extra measures with more frequency to sanitize classrooms, cafeterias, buses and other areas. In Alva, the public schools are requiring masks in hallways and on buses. Students are allowed to remove masks in areas where they aren’t moving around and social distancing can be enforced, such as some classrooms. The NWOSU campus is requiring masks.
