JAMESTOWN – Students are returning for the fall semester at SUNY JCC Monday, and now due to COVID-19 delta variant concerns, face masks will be required for all.  







Officials announced the news late last week, saying face masks will be required in all campus buildings regardless of vaccination status. 

Previously the college was going to allow those vaccinated against the virus to ditch their masks. 







Those who are rooming together, however, do not need to wearing masks within their dorm. 

Although guests who do not reside in Hillside Suites as part of the Residence Life program are not allowed. This includes outside friends, family, and non-residential JCC students.  













The college says exceptions will be made for move-in and move-out days when up to two family members will be allowed to assist residents. 

In addition, the school has also implemented new security protocols this fall, with doors now automatically locking after normal business hours. Students still have access the campus anytime with their key cards.
