Face Coverings


UPDATE: For the safety of our college community and to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, face coverings are REQUIRED to be worn indoors in all NWACC locations. The face covering requirement is for everyone - students, employees and visitors - whether you have or have not received a COVID-19 vaccine. Leadership will continue to reassess face covering requirements on a monthly basis.

If you are not able to obtain your own face covering, NWACC has single use, disposable masks/face coverings available at Department of Public Safety (DPS) stations and at building entrance tables.

Box for Masks


There is also a cloth face covering/mask drop box located outside the DPS 
station in Burns Hall where college members can donate cloth face coverings and pick out a face covering if needed. If you'd like to donate new cloth face coverings, please call DPS (479-619-4229) to arrange a drop off. 

NOTE: Please be sure to wash or disinfect cloth masks regularly. 

Brightwater Students: You are required to wear an approved mask while at Brightwater and in labs; there's no need to take a mask from the drop box. One of these approved masks will be provided to you on the first day of classes.
