RCC Happenings

We are saying goodbye to February and hello to March, the spring season and warmer weather! Enjoy a great Spotify playlist to get those spring vibes going - https://spoti.fi/3hmBiIg

Over the last few months COVID-19 has made safety and mental health exceedingly difficult and stressful. As we work to find a balance and based on the Governor’s recommendation, Starting Tuesday, February 22 RCC will remove the indoor face covering requirement and transition to optional and encouraged face coverings indoors for everyone.

The College will continue to require students, staff and faculty to self-report if they have COVID-19 symptoms, have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, or have themselves tested positive using the Exposure Notification Concern Form.

The safety and mental health of our faculty, staff, and students is paramount. We continue to evaluate the risks and implement strategies to promote the safest and healthiest campus environment possible.

If you are concerned about a possible COVID-19 exposure, please remember to report it through the exposure form: https://randolphcc.wufoo.com/forms/zdek9mo1cocgfx/
