THE CEO at East Sussex College says students wearing face masks inside for lessons is ‘non negotiable.’

Rebecca Conroy has issued a video of reassurance this afternoon on social media.

She is urging students to be tested at the college though she says it’s not mandatory.

Students and staff wearing masks is a must unless anyone is medically exempt.

She said she would not compromise on the issue of masks.

“It’s part of our daily habits and patterns,” she says in the very positive video.

She also said some students had expressed concerns about others possibly not wearing masks. That will not happen, she says.

The video can be found on the college social media pages.
