Current Campus Safety and Guidelines

Effective April 4, 2022: Masks will be optional for all. Thank you for respecting an individual's decision to wear or not wear a mask.
To keep our faculty, staff, students, and your children as safe as possible, we ask that you avoid bringing children to campus. On the Waterbury campus, children will not be permitted in classrooms, open computer labs, the library, or staff offices.
For your convenience, you may bring your child on short, business-only visits (no more than 10-20 minutes) to the Waterbury campus. All children over 2 years old must wear a face covering.
Children are not allowed on the Danbury campus due to limited space and the tightness of corridors and hallways.

Mask and Rapid Test Availability. For the those who choose to wear one, face masks will be available for students and employees. Masks can be obtained at the Information Center in Kinney Hall (5th floor) and in Academic Division Offices. Keep in mind that N95 masks are considered to be respirators, and some may find it difficult to breath when wearing one correctly. If you have concerns or questions about your ability to wear a mask of this style, please see your medical provider. Use of an N95 mask for protection against the virus at NVCC is considered to be voluntary under 29 CFR1910.134.
NVCC follows recommendations set by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the CT Department of Public Health. As this guidance change, the college adapts their protocols. Disinfectant stations are available at all building entrances, masks are available for those who choose to wear one, and classroom seating has been arranged to provide more space where possible.
