Colorado Mountain College to rescind mask mandate effective Feb. 28
Colorado Mountain College will no longer require masks for students, faculty and staff beginning on Monday, Feb. 28.
College leadership made the decision after considering self-reported immunity rates among CMC faculty and staff, rapidly declining COVID transmission and positivity rates in the communities CMC serves, the stable and improving capacities of health care facilities, and public health plans at the city, county and school district levels.
“We serve a very diverse group of people across our 11 campus locations, from infants at our child care facilities, to people in their 90s and all ages in between. Because of that, we’ve been cautious about lifting our requirement to wear masks inside our facilities,” said CMC Chief Operating Officer & Chief of Staff Matt Gianneschi. “We are now confident in the direction of the data and are giving ourselves some extra time to assist those who need to make accommodations before this goes into effect.”
The college will announce additional guidance regarding COVID-19 protocols no later than Feb. 21.
