Paul Quinn College will require students to wear a mask as they return back to classes.
The school is a private institution, so it doesn’t have to adhere to Governor Greg Abbott’s non-mask mandate.
“We are requiring students to have vaccines. We’re requiring them to wear masks. We didn’t think it was anything particularly controversial. The science was very clear on these things,” Dr. Sorrell, president of Paul Quinn stated.
He says that he knows that there will be opposition. But, his job is to do what is in the best interest of the students. As a matter of fact, students will be continually tested every two weeks.
Approximately 200 students will go to classes in person at the college. On-line courses will be available for those who are not vaccinated.
