‘Quarantine tents’ to be removed


JASPER - Area residents have questioned about large, green tents in the parking lot of the old Walker High School over the last couple of days. Officials with the City of Jasper and Jasper City Schools said Friday morning the tents would be removed within a couple of days.

Jasper Schools Superintendent Ann Jackson said a company going around the state showing portable wellness/isolation tents have been targeting school systems to rent the enclosures. 

“It’s a demo they asked us to look at,” she said. “We are not interested – wasn’t ever interested.”

The tents are expected to be removed from the area by Monday.
