Campus tours are important for any university to market to potential students looking to attend in upcoming semesters, and SFA is no exception. Unfortunately, as larger groups of students are being allowed on campus at the same time, we’ve been seeing more people not wearing masks on University grounds. 

As vaccines are becoming more readily available, we are greatly anticipating the day we can forget about masks, limited contact, limited seating and, above all, Zoom. Now more than ever, it feels like COVID-19 is on its way out, but it’s not quite out yet.  

In the month of March, we have seen an average of 9-14 reported new cases per day in Nacogdoches County. At SFA, we currently have 10 active cases. It’s not gone. 

During the month of March, Governor Greg Abbott lifted the mask mandate. At SFA, and many other private businesses, masks are still mandatory. We ask that while visitors share the beautiful campus SFA has to offer, they also share our respect for the rules. 

We want to go to our classes. We want to make it through all of this together, and it takes all of us to do that. Whether you’re a student, faculty or just visiting, please be mindful of your neighbor. We want this campus to be as open as possible, while also maintaining the safety of our faculty, staff, student body and their families.
