WILBURTON, OK (May 17, 2021) – In response to new Center for Disease Control guidance released on May 13, Eastern Oklahoma State College will no longer require the mandated use of masks or face coverings on campus. Eastern also plans to return to full capacity, in-person classes and activities this fall.

The changes in Eastern’s COVID-19 policies are effective immediately. These updates to current policies are subject to change or modification depending on COVID-19 case counts in Latimer and Pittsburg counties. Eastern officials will follow the guidance of the CDC, as well as local and state health officials, in determining any needed changes. Updates to the website and relevant signage removal on the Wilburton and McAlester campuses will take time to complete.

Students attending classes on Southeastern’s McCurtain County Campus in Idabel and Kiamichi Technology Center’s Campus in Antlers will be required to follow the hosting institution’s policies and procedures.
