What does this mean?


To reintegrate critical employees and a limited number of students onto the physical campus for essential functions and classes that cannot be carried out remotely. The primary focus is implementing recommended physical distancing measures, procuring, and installing additional personal protective equipment to ensure staff and students' safety.

Cautiously Reopening Phase


Starting August 10, 2020, ECC will be transitioning to the next phase of its reopening plan, referred to as “SemiNormal.”

Fall Classes

To keep our students and campus community safe, fall 2020 classes will be offered primarily online – with face-to-face instruction provided only when necessary. Learn more about what to expect in the Fall 2020 semester.

Meetings, Events & Visitors

  • ECC facilities are not open to the general public, although limited on-campus appointments are available. Hours are published on the RemoteHub.
  • To limit exposure of COVID-19 through social distancing, ECC is limiting large gatherings during the fall semester. 

Reporting to Campus

  • Classes start on August 24, and we continue to prioritize the health and safety of all.
  • Most employees, except those identified as having critical functions, will continue to work remotely.  If you are coming back to campus, it is required that all employees complete the Return to Work/Illness reporting form before their first day back on campus. English Version Spanish Version
  • As always, if you are sick or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, including fever, coughing, or difficulty breathing, do not come to campus.

Travel

  • Currently, no out-of-state College-sponsored travel is approved, and only local travel is approved for critical functions to support student success directly.
  • We will re-evaluate College-sponsored travel in October to ensure we are in keeping with best practices and recommendations.
