Mask Policy

As COVID-19 cases are rising, Kettering College is requiring masks to be worn at all times by students, faculty, staff and visitors, to protect yourself, your classmates or coworkers, friends, family and our community.

This requirement is based on current CDC guidance and the recent OSHA Emergency Temporary Standard.
