    Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

    by Heather Gable -

    Hello Students, Faculty, and Staff,

    As you are all aware, the college is closed today to honor Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and his legacy.  While we may not be able to attend in-person events due to the snowstorm we received in the last 24 hours, I encourage everyone to reflect and use this day as an opportunity to serve and learn.

    "Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'" - Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Stay safe and warm on this snowy and icy day!

    At this time, the college will open as planned tomorrow.  However, the potential for melting and refreezing of the precipitation we just received, may result in a delayed start in the morning.  Please check Moodle or WSET before you leave for your clinical rotation or the college.  A decision will be made early in the morning if a delay is needed.  

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Heather Gable

    COVID Notification Procedures

    by Susan Burnette -

    Hello,

    Welcome to spring semester! Sadly, COVID-19 is on the rise again and I wanted to send a reminder of what to do if you believe you have COVID symptoms or a positive test result.

    First of all if you believe you may have symptoms of COVID-19 check the Virginia Department of Health Symptom checker at this link :  https://www.vdh.virginia.gov/coronavirus/coronavirus/what-to-do-if-you-have-confirmed-or-suspected-coronavirus-disease-covid-19/#covid-symptoms

    If your symptoms are consistent with those on the symptom checker, please contact me (Mrs. Burnette -Student Health Nurse), Dr. Puckett, and Sherrie Cheryba our Health Works Liaison from Centra all on one email and include your symptoms. Based upon your symptoms, test results etc. you will be instructed on how to proceed. It is vital you follow these steps or your absences from class/clinical will NOT be excused. Once furloughed you may NOT return to in person class or clinical without clearance from Ms. Cheryba.

    Currently , if someone in your household test positive or you have been exposed you do not have to quarantine unless you are exhibiting symptoms.  

    Also, if you are going to be absent from class or clinical please make sure that you communicate with EACH faculty member from your courses.

    COVID Mitigation Strategies

    by Heather Gable -

    Hello Students,

    We want to maintain the safety of everyone here at the college. Due to the increased number of COVID cases in our region, we adjusted the access and usage of two areas in the building. The goal is to avoid multiple students in a small, restricted space and congregating while masks are removed.

    Study Center: This area is closed to all students. If you need to print, you will need to use Room 164 when it is not in use.

    Student Lounge: This area is available for vending and bathroom use only.

    These restrictions will remain in place until February 1, 2022. At this time, we will reassess the number of COVID cases, and access will continue to be limited or discontinued.

    Please continue to be diligent by wearing a mask, social distancing, avoiding congregating in common areas, and using proper hand hygiene.

    We appreciate your understanding and patience as we adjust to these changes.

    Thank you,

    Dr. Heather Gable
