Campus Health Precautions

CDC recommendations and precautions for a safe environment will be stringently followed. The number of students in a classroom has been reduced to allow for distancing and students are required to wear a face/mouth covering when on campus.

For the continued safety and well-being of students, faculty, and staff, the college has converted as many classes as possible to online or hybrid (online plus limited face-to-face interaction). Additional hand sanitizing stations have been installed on campus and a deep cleaning is being carried out each evening using EPA-approved disinfectants and foggers. A campus-wide sanitizing wipe down of door pulls and light switches is done twice each weekday and the use of water fountains has been discontinued. Service desk shields have been installed in high traffic areas.
