NSCC Updated Safety Protocols

Message from Albert Lewis, Jr. - Executive Vice President

Dear Campus Community,

Welcome back for the fall semester. It is my hope that this email reaches you at a safe and healthy time in your life.

For the past couple of years our world has dealt with the COVID-19 pandemic which affected all our lives in so many ways. Because of your diligence and adherence to Northwest State Community College (NSCC) health and safety protocols, the college did not experience an outbreak on campus. For the past several months, the college has been monitoring infection rates on campus and infection rates have been kept to a minimum. To that end, effective immediately, the college no longer requests that you report your positive COVID-19 test to the college.

Everyone is encouraged to continue to stay updated on their COVID-19 vaccinations and get tested if experiencing symptoms. If you are at high-risk for severe illness, please contact your health care provider about what precautions you need to take. NSCC will continue to monitor the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Ohio Department of Health, and the Henry County Health Department for the latest developments.

Remember, if you are feeling ill, please stay home. Staying home is for your own safety and ours. Should you become ill, faculty and staff should contact their supervisor and learners should contact their instructors. The safety of our staff, faculty, and learners is our priority.

All the best,

Albert Lewis, Jr.
Executive Vice President
