JSU reinstates mask policy for all campus buildings, so it’s No Mask, No Entry at tournament, ticketing details and more

Jacksonville State has renewed a mask policy for all campus buildings effective Wednesday so facial coverings will be just as important to get into the Calhoun County Tournament as the ticket that fans will purchase through GoFan.

Until further notice, masks will be required inside all university buildings. The policy applies to all students, faculty, staff, contractors and visitors regardless of vaccination status.

No Mask. No Entry.

The only exemptions to the policy are when along in offices and private workspaces, while eating or drinking inside campus dining facilities or participating in physical activities. So, while the players don’t have to be masked on the court, the fans in the stands have to be.

The university said masks will be available at building entrances.

The tournament starts Friday with four games:

Pleasant Valley vs. Wellborn, 4:30 p.m.
JCA vs. Ohatchee, 7:30 p.m.
Faith Christian vs. Donoho, 3 p.m.
Saks vs. Wellborn, 6 p.m.
