Our Federal, State and County authorities are working to ensure that all adults will have the opportunity to be vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to the end of May 2021. To reduce personal risk and protect our community, we highly recommend that you receive the COVID -19 vaccination prior to registering for a face-to-face or hybrid section. If you are unable to be vaccinated, please consider registering for an online section of the course. Stay informed about COVID-19 vaccination clinics by visiting My Turn.
Our goal is to provide you, students, employees, and our community, with resources and the latest news on the coronavirus (COVID-19) developments. Updated: 03/25/2021
