IMPORTANT

April 9, 2021 - Governor Kay Ivey issued her twenty-sixth supplemental emergency proclamation transitioning the state from an amended Safer at Home Order to a new Safer Apart Order, the third phase of COVID-19 pandemic health orders. Masks will no longer be mandated statewide, but individuals are strongly encouraged to wear a mask or other facial covering when in public and in close contact with other people. 

Although masks are no longer mandated by the state, masks are required on Drake State campus until further notice. Students should check the College’s website, Canvas, and their Drake State student email for additional updates.
