MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Southwest Tennessee Community College has reinstated its mask mandate .
All students, employees and visitors to any Southwest campus are required to wear face coverings while indoors regardless of vaccination status. The only exceptions are when employees are in a private office or while eating.

Those who test positive for COVID-19 are encouraged to fill out a confidential self-report online through the college’s website. In accordance with Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) guidelines, the College will continue internal case reporting and contact tracing.
Southwest returns to on-campus learning Aug. 23. Students have the option to take courses virtually or in-person or a hybrid of both.
