Specific measures have been put into place to protect the health and safety of the entire college community as we work together to limit the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, only employees identified by their supervisors as having critical functions will be permitted on campus, unless other arrangements are made. All students, employees, vendors, and necessary visitors on campus must wear a face covering and stay six feet apart. Do not come to campus if you are sick or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, including fever, coughing, or difficulty breathing.
