COVID-19 update 3.18.20

Dear NVCC employees: 

As we move online for the balance of the semester, our default mode of work will become telework, and we wanted to be clear regarding employee presence on campus: 

  • No employee is to come to campus unless they have been informed by their manager that they are designated as Level 1. This may be communicated through email, direct phone contact, text, or other electronic means.  

  • Our goal will be to minimize Level 1 designation to the greatest extent possible. 

  • Level 1 designation status is subject to evolve as we move through the semester in our new operating model. Your status may change so maintain regular contact with your manager. 

  • If you are designated as a Level 1 and are unable to come to campus due to child, eldercare or personal health issues inform you manager of these issues as soon as possible. 

  • All other employees NOT designated by their manager as Level 1 should continue to telework as previously directed. 

Please contact your respective deans with any questions regarding this guidance. 

Mil gracias y bendiciones, Daisy

Precautions to Safeguard Yourself

Precautions to Safeguard Yourself

Hand washing:

All students, faculty, and staff can help to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases by regularly washing hands for at least 20 seconds. To learn more about proper hand washing, visit the CDC’s website page When and How to Wash Your Hands (CDC)

Other Precautions To Take:

In addition to frequent hand washing there are many other steps you can take to help prevent the spread of disease. These steps include:

  • Refrain from shaking hands, hugging, or kissing as a means of greeting.
  • Do not share food or beverages.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
