Tidewater Community College students are being instructed not to return to campus after Spring Break, which concludes Saturday, March 14, in order to limit the spread of COVID-19.
TCC has cancelled all classes on March 16 and 17.
“Guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been consistent in recommending social distancing as a strategy to help stem the spread of coronavirus,” President Marcia Conston said in a message to faculty and staff. Like many colleges, TCC is canceling classes “out of an abundance of caution and concern,” she said.
Classes will resume March 18 using remote instruction, which may include email, webinars or conference calls, in addition to established distance learning technology. Classes will remain in remote delivery at least through April 1.
“The college’s goal is to maintain continuity in instruction for our students while doing our best to limit the spread of COVID-19,” President Conston said.
Priority enrollment for Summer Session and Fall Semester will open on March 16; students can register for classes online.
Open enrollment begins March 23. New students can call 757-822-1111 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain virtual assistance.
If there is a decision to continue with remote learning beyond April 1, TCC will advise faculty, staff and students by March 27.
