COVID-19 Updates

During Governor Cooper’s press conference, he encouraged schools and local governments to end the mask mandates in place. Local school districts, colleges and universities have responded by implementing optional masking into their protocols. The CDC has also updated guidance easing mask mandates. Therefore: 

    • Face coverings are optional in most classroom spaces on campus, however, due to federal and state guidelines, masks will remain required in health care settings, including clinical sites.

Although masks mandates are easing, COVID remains a public health risk.

    • Individuals who feel more comfortable wearing a face mask still have the option and are encouraged to do so.
    • Unvaccinated individuals or individuals who are at higher risk should consider continuing to wear a face mask in all situations when in close proximity to others.
    • Please remember to practice safety measures: wash your hands, cover your mouth when you sneeze or cough, use hand sanitizing agents, and most importantly, do not come to campus or work if you are sick.
    • Employees and students are strongly encouraged to get fully vaccinated.
    • Fully vaccinated employees and students are encouraged to get a booster shot as soon as you are eligible.
    • COVID-19 stations have been placed in designated, high traffic areas. The stations are stocked with a limited supply of disposable masks, face shields and hand sanitizer, and should be used as needed.
    • High touch areas or high traffic areas and buildings are cleaned and disinfected at regular intervals throughout the day, and a deep cleaning will occur every evening.
    • Water fountains and water dispensers may be disabled to prevent the spread of the virus.
    • If a positive COVID-19 case is reported or suspected, the area or building will be closed and sanitized according to CDC guidelines


As the situation remains fluid, the college will continue to monitor the data and will take any necessary steps as needed to ensure the safety of its students, faculty, staff, and community.
