JOPLIN, Mo. — Missouri Southern is temporarily changing its masking guidance.
The university is requiring masks to be worn in classrooms, meetings where social distancing is not possible, the Wilcoxon Health Center, and the Lion Cub Academy.
Everywhere else, the school says masking is optional.
Officials say the changes are due to a rise in area Covid cases.
No word on how long the new guidance will last.
