For Students

Register for the Second Eight-Weeks

Protocols Update June 2021

Beginning, immediately, we will no longer require daily temperature checks, SinePro check-ins, or the wearing of mask. Access to buildings can be made from any entry point.

Health & Safety

Face Masks/Face Coverings
Face Masks are optional while you are on campus. We strongly encourage anyone who is not fully vaccinated to wear face masks or face coverings while on campus and in the presence of others. Appropriate use of face masks or coverings is essential to minimizing risks to yourself and others near you, though it is not a substitute for social distancing.

Social Distancing
Maintaining space from others is one of the most effective tools in slowing the spread of COVID-19. Public health officials recommend that individuals remain at least three feet apart at all times, do not gather in large groups, and be cautious about attending mass gatherings. To support this effort, NCTC will continue to encourage some virtual meetings using tools such as WebEx and Zoom.

Advanced Cleaning Protocols
NCTC has collaborated with its custodial vendors to conduct advanced cleaning protocols in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines, and custodial services will conduct additional cleanings.

In addition to these disinfection procedures, additional care should be taken to wipe down commonly used surfaces. NCTC encourages all employees to wipe down their work areas with EPA-registered 60% alcohol solution.

Hand Sanitizer Stations
NCTC provides additional hand sanitizer stations in the common areas of every campus facility for use by employees and students (these stations are not intended to replace proper handwashing). Disinfectant wipes or spray will be available for use by instructors and students for wiping down instructional spaces, as needed.

Restrooms
The occupancy of restrooms will continue to be limited based on facility size to ensure at least 3 feet of social distancing between individuals. Restrooms will be cleaned at least every two hours during the day and will undergo a detailed cleaning each evening. Please wash your hands thoroughly after using the restroom. 

Elevators
Campus elevators occupancy limits are lifted.

Travel
College travel restrictions are still in effect between campuses, NCTC limits official travel to that deemed essential by the appropriate Vice-Chancellor.  

Use of Facilities
NCTC will evaluate each request for on-campus events and external requests for the use of facilities on a case by case basis to determine if the event will be approved. This includes meetings, banquets, luncheons, speeches, performances, and other gatherings.

The COVID-19 Dashboard

The COVID-19 Public Dashboard has been created as a resource for the NCTC community to provide some answers to important questions. As this virus changes, we must be prepared to respond and implement plans to continue operating and serving our students. The safety of the college community is our priority and NCTC will continue to provide information and preventative measures to keep our communities safe.

I've tested positive, believe I have COVID, or have been around someone with COVID. What do I do?

If you test positive for COVID-19 or get sick after you are exposed to someone with COVID-19, you can help stop the spread of COVID-19 to others.
