Update: August 10, 2021

Due to the spread of the Delta variant of COVID-19, the CDC has updated its mask-wearing guidance to encourage mask wearing by the vaccinated or unvaccinated in indoor public areas.
Grayson College is not mandating masks at this time, however, we encourage the use of masks and practicing responsible health precautions. 
  • Continue to wash your hands frequently with soap and water, or use hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available.
  • Stay home if you feel sick.
  • Get vaccinated, if able.
Vaccines are available throughout Grayson County. The Grayson County Health Department has a walk-in clinic every Tuesday from 9:30am to 12:30 pm at the Sherman Health Department, 515 N Walnut. No pre-registration is required.

Beginning Tuesday, June 1st, Grayson College moved into Phase 4 of the Return to Campus Plan.
