COVID-19 Updates

Starting Friday, November 20 at 5pm our courses will be moving to online instruction. For more information, including a list of exempt classes, check out the latest update from Dr. C. Kelley.

COVID-19 Update

Due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in our service area and across the Commonwealth, the college is preparing for a transition to remote learning for the remainder of the Fall 2020 semester. Beginning on Monday, November 23, all of our previously scheduled in-person lecture classes will be moved to Teams or BlackBoard Collaborate. You will receive communication from your instructors on how to proceed.

You will also be receiving information in the near future about the continuation of student services such as:

  • advising,
  • tutoring,
  • commencement,
  • financial aid, and
  • registration for Spring 2021 semester.

We want you to know that we are still here to help you be successful in your classes.

In the meantime, please remember your health and safety are most important to us. Continue to practice good hygiene habits and observe the following recommendations:

  • Wear a mask when you are in public or around other people. 
  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds frequently.
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer when you cannot wash your hands.
  • Do your best to avoid touching your face.
  • Practice social distancing.
  • If you have a fever and/or have respiratory symptoms, let someone know, and stay home.
  • Cough or sneeze into a tissue or your elbow.

I have been very proud of you and your commitment to staying #HealthyAtMCC this fall. This move to remote learning is a response to the statewide and national situation and not anything that has happened specifically at the college. You have worn your masks, maintained social distance, and followed our local campus rules. I am very thankful for that.

Again, I want you to know that we are here to help you be successful even in the midst of this pandemic. If you have any concerns, please reach out to your advisor or our Dean of Students, Cathy Vaughan.  Stay healthy, stay safe, and stay MCC Stronger

My best,
