Campus Shifts to "Mask-friendly Policy"


Starting Monday, February 28, Otero College will shift to a "mask-friendly policy". Mask friendly means that no one is required to wear a face-covering but anyone can and should feel comfortable in doing so. Faculty still have the prerogative to require face-coverings in their classrooms. Otero College does reserve the right to modify these plans based on the status of COVID transmission rates and other factors.

Starting in May 2022, the COVID-19 community testing sites located in Crowley and Otero Counties will be as follows:
