ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, N.C. (WGHP) — Rockingham Community College announced on their Facebook page that they would require masks for the Fall semester.

To ensure the health and safety of our campus community, RCC again requires face masks in all campus buildings, and social distancing outdoors, whether or not you are vaccinated.

This is in response to the Delta variant of COVID-19. College administrators will keep an eye on how Rockingham County is faring against Delta, and may relax the mask requirement in coming months. Stay safe!

Other North Carolina colleges have announced similar requirements recently, including Duke University in Durham and Shaw University in Raleigh.
