We previously reported that officials at an Atlanta University imposed a mask mandate for 14 days as a precautionary measure. Morris Brown College will not permit parties or large student gatherings on campus during this time. Other precautions include temperature checks upon arrival, social distancing, and contact tracing. Morris Brown College requires vaccines for students, with exemptions allowed for religious and medical reasons.
Officials have also advised students to maintain social distancing and prohibited parties and large student gatherings for two weeks. In an editorial published by the American College of Physicians (ACP), government doctors and public health experts in Seattle have again called for mandatory face coverings in healthcare facilities. They argue that hospital patients face a higher risk of severe illness or death from Covid and would benefit from reducing the risk of infection among patients and healthcare workers.
The Hollywood studio Lionsgate brought back mask mandates at their offices. The Hollywood Report wrote that Lionsgate sent out an email to all staff members requesting that when traveling to particular floors, they “mask up.”
The protocol was put in place after several Santa Monica employees caught the virus, they are also asking employees to self screen before coming to work.
