Halifax Community College (HCC) will be suspending all essential business services and campus access from April 3 through April 13 to allow for deep cleaning of facilities and buildings.
Campus access and operations will resume on April 14.
This is a proactive step taken to maintain a healthy campus environment.
“This decision is being made with the wellbeing of our students and staff being paramount,” said Dr. Michael Elam, president of HCC. “We have been made aware that one of our employees has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. That employee has not been on campus since March 18, so they have not had contact with anyone on our campus. However, we are taking this prudent measure now just as a precaution.”
Despite the suspension of essential business services and campus access, all students are still able to complete online learning for their curriculum classes.
Students can still contact their instructors and advisors via email or telephone. In addition, registration for the summer and fall semesters, that began on March 30, is still underway. Curriculum students can register by going online to www.halifaxcc.edu and clicking on the WebAdvisor link. Current students should contact their advisors directly for advising. Finally, all student support services, counseling, and tutoring services are still available online and via telephone for all students.
“HCC continues to be fully operational online,” Elam said. “Students needing Internet access are being asked to contact the Learning Resource Center staff to make arrangements to maintain their connection. Our mission to continue delivering first-class education and services does not change – no matter the challenge we may face.”
