Since late March, when the COVID-19 pandemic made it necessary for Cleveland Community College to shift as many classes as possible to virtual formats, I have been impressed by the dedication and superb teamwork that CCC students, faculty and staff have shown. The College has remained open, transitioning courses to virtual formats, finishing the Spring semester strong, marking the graduation of the proud Class of 2020 and registering students for summer courses.
On May 8, Governor Roy Cooper announced Phase One of a gradual plan to ease restrictions. As of today, this phase extends through Friday, May 22, at 5:00 p.m. CCC is following the Phase One guidelines.
Our goal now is to move toward returning to our wonderful campus, where we can resume learning, training and working in person. Once we receive an update from Gov. Cooper, CCC will provide information regarding its plan for returning to campus while ensuring the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and visitors. In entering this new phase, all of us will need to continue working together and taking common-sense measures to safeguard ourselves and each other.
We expect an announcement about Phase Two from the Governor’s office today or tomorrow. As soon as we have more details about the state’s Phase Two, CCC will provide an update about a return-to-campus plan. Please stay tuned!
