Bluegrass Community College will require masks starting Friday

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Masks will be mandatory inside all Bluegrass Community and Technical College (BCTC) facilities, regardless of vaccination status, effective Friday, the college announced Thursday.

BCTC will offer fully online, face-to-face and hybrid class options in each of the 16-week, 12-week and 8-week sessions.

Face-to-face classes will have an online or remote instruction element, so if in-person classes must move online for a while the transition will be easier for students.

All buildings will meet health guidelines set by federal, local and state health officials for students and employees to remain #HealthyAtBCTC.

BCTC will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and follow the governor’s guidelines regarding higher education for the fall term while offering flexible solutions to prepare the community for career options.
