Nov. 17: All Classes, Except those in Health Areas, to be Offered Remotely Nov. 18-Dec. 8; College to Remain Open

MCCC President Dr. Kojo A. Quartey has announced that in response to Department of Health and Human Services Emergency Order on Nov. 15, all Monroe County Community College in-person classes, with the exception of those in health areas, will be offered remotely from Wednesday, Nov 18 through Tuesday, Dec. 8.

Classes in the health areas will continue to be offered in-person but in small, socially distanced groups and employ the use of masks and/or other personal protection equipment.

The college will remain open with as many employees working remotely as possible, Quartey said.

There is a possibility face to face classes could resume for a short time prior to the end of the fall 2020 semester, said Vice President of instruction Dr. Grace Yackee. Faculty are in discussions with the division deans and will determine how to proceed for each of the classes they are teaching.

Registration for Winter Semester is ongoing. Classes begin January 8, 2021. The majority of courses will be offered in online and blended formats that can include both online and on-campus instruction in small, socially-distanced groups. Registration information is available at www.monroeccc.edu/registration

Through the Futures for Frontliners program, those who worked in essential industries during the COVID-19 pandemic from April 1 – June 30 can apply for funding to attend MCCC tuition free beginning with the Winter Semester. The application is available at www.Michigan.gov/Frontliners. More information is available at www.monroeccc.edu/frontliners.

All who enter the Monroe County Community Campus are expected to comply with the protocols and guidelines put in place in response to the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • Do not come to campus if you are sick.
  • Social distancing practices must be followed by staying 6 feet apart from other people at all times, not gathering in groups and avoiding crowded places and mass gatherings.
  • Face masks or face coverings must be worn by all persons inside college facilities. Face shields are required in classrooms and labs when direct contact is unavoidable. In these cases, shields will be provided to faculty and students. Per CDC guidelines, face shields should not be used as a substitute for face coverings. Instead, shields are to be used in addition to face coverings as an extra layer of protection when direct contact is unavoidable and/or social distancing is not possible. 
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, sneezing or touching your face. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol.

There is a possibility face to face classes could resume for a short time prior to the end of the fall 2020 semester. Faculty are in discussions with the division deans and will determine how to proceed for each of the classes they are teaching.
