9/1/21 Update

Welcome TCC Students,

In an effort to improve our current COVID-19 reporting and contact tracing process we have created online forms for self-reporting. Employees and students should use this form to self-report positive COVID-19 results or to report exposure to COVID-19.

Human Resources will reach out to the individual to gather more information as necessary to facilitate contact tracing. The information collected on the form is confidential and will only be viewed by authorized personnel in Human Resources.

Also, in partnership with Leon County Schools, all TCC employees and students can receive a COVID-19 test at any of the testing sites for Leon County Schools.

Additionally, the Department of Health will be on-campus September 10, 13, 14, and 15 facilitating a Vaccination Clinic for students, employees and members of the community. All Vaccination Clinics will be held in the Student Union from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Walk-ins will be accepted, however, we strongly encourage all to pre-register at Vaccination Clinic Registration. We are working to secure other dates where the Department of Health can facilitate additional Vaccination Clinics. More information forthcoming.

As always, we encourage personal responsibility in helping us keep each other safe. Please continue to wash your hands often, take the day off when sick, respect one another’s personal space, and also continue to notify Human Resources if you’ve tested positive for COVID-19.

Safety FAQ's

A Letter From Our Campus

Tallahassee Community College is proud of all we’ve done to make our campus a safe learning environment during the pandemic. Based on the new Centers for Disease Control recommendations, we are planning to provide our students with a full college experience this fall that includes everything our campus has to offer.

 

Students will be able to enjoy the return of all athletic competition, student organizations, clubs and more. With more of our community getting vaccinated, and with lower cases being reported, we are confident that we can keep our students safe.

 

TCC has implemented extensive safety measures and procedures to minimize risk, prioritize health and safety considerations and enable an academic model that accommodates both remote learning and in-person instruction to better serve our students. The College is proud of its safe learning environment and will continue to invest in enhanced cleaning protocols and other measures related to safety.

 

TCC classes will continue to offer course modalities to meet students’ needs:

  • On-campus face-to-face classes.
  • TCC LIVE (Learning Interactively in a Virtual Environment) – online classes using software allowing students to meet at regularly scheduled times.
  • TCC Online – classes that allow students flexibility to complete coursework online with predetermined deadlines.
  • Hybrid – classes that may include a combination of online and face-to-face coursework.

Students, faculty and staff will not be required to have vaccinations or to wear a face covering on campus, with several exceptions. Those students currently enrolled in May Main, Mini and May Express in-person and hybrid classes, as well as students engaged in Workforce programs, must continue to wear masks in their classes. Those students registered for current classes with the understanding of an in-class mask requirement. There are also some specific programs and courses at TCC that may require personal protective equipment due to external guidelines. These may include healthcare programs, laboratory courses, etc. Faculty members will also be required to wear face coverings in those classes.

 

The College respects each individual’s right to make their own personal choices with regards to their health. Students are welcome to continue to wear masks, and we will continue to provide face coverings and other safety supplies upon request and do what we can to help make vaccination opportunities available.

What are the new CDC guidelines?

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have recommended that fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear a mask or physically distance.

Does TCC require masks now?

Following guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), masks are no longer required on campus, however, the College respects one’s personal choice to continue wearing a mask.

Can I ask someone to put on a mask?

The College no longer has a mask mandate; therefore, you cannot ask students, employees, or visitors to wear a mask. There are some exceptions as it relates to certain academic and workforce programs.

May Main, Mini and Express and current Workforce and certain academic programs will continue to require masks because those courses began with the understanding that masks are required

What about June Express and Fall Semester classes?

For June Express, the Fall Semester and beyond, the College will observe new CDC guidelines that no longer require a face covering in the classroom or anywhere on campus.

Are there some exceptions to the no-mask decision?

There are some specific programs and courses at TCC that may require personal protective equipment due to external guidelines. These may include healthcare programs, laboratory courses, etc.

What if I want to wear a mask on campus or in the classroom?

Employees and students are welcome to continue to wear masks. The College will also provide face coverings and other safety supplies upon request.

Do students and employees have to be vaccinated at TCC?

No, vaccinations are not required at TCC. The College respects each individual’s right to make their own personal choices with regards to their health.

Will there be physical distancing?

While there will be no signage or requirements for physical distancing, the College is asking everyone to respect one another’s personal space.

Will there be active student organizations and athletics this fall?

TCC plans to offer a full College life experience this fall, including the return of all athletic competition, student organizations and clubs. Student travel activities are also permitted.

Will TCC continue to offer the current course modalities?

TCC classes will continue to offer course modalities to meet students’ needs:

· On-campus face-to-face classes.

· TCC LIVE (Learning Interactively in a Virtual Environment) – synchronous online classes using software allowing students to meet at regularly scheduled times.

· TCC Online – synchronous classes that allow students flexibility to complete coursework online with predetermined deadlines.

· Hybrid – classes that may include a combination of online and face-to-face coursework.

How many face-to-face classes will TCC offer?

The College will continue to offer all four course modalities, but we will also continue to survey students and offer as many in-person classes as students want.

What happens if the CDC makes other recommendations in the future?

The College will continue to closely monitor any recommendations from the CDC and will make decisions based on the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff. TCC’s commitment to safety has remained resolute, and it continues to be the cornerstone of the College’s actions.

What has TCC done to make the campus safe?

TCC has implemented extensive safety measures and procedures to minimize risk, prioritize health and safety considerations and enable an academic model that accommodates both remote learning and in-person instruction to better serve our students. The College is proud of its safe learning environment and will continue to invest in enhanced cleaning protocols and other measures related to safety.

How many students and staff have reported positive COVID-19 test results?

You can find these results on our Student Dashboard, which is updated weekly.

What should I do if I have a positive test result?

We are asking all students and employees who test positive for the COVID-19 virus to contact Human Resources at (850) 201-8510 or hr@tcc.fl.edu.

Who should I contact if I have safety and security questions?

Students with safety questions or concerns may contact the Office of Student Affairs number (850) 201-8490.

Do I still need to do a daily self-check?

No, daily self-checks are no longer required.

Will I still need to self-report if I am exposed to or contract COVID-19?

Yes, Human Resources is still tracking this information for students and employees. To self-report, please contact Human Resources at 850-201-8510.

Can I ask if a student or professor has been vaccinated?

No, you cannot. As always, an individual’s health information is protected information. For contact tracing purposes, Human Resources may ask if an employee or student has been vaccinated during self-reporting.

The College respects each individual’s right to make their own personal choices with regards to their health.

Will physical distancing still be practiced?

Yes, physical distancing is still recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The College recognizes each person’s personal space and asks employees and students to respect each person’s personal space.

Will the College continue to provide masks, cleaning supplies, etc.?

Yes, the College will continue to provide face coverings and other safety supplies upon request. Other College implemented safety precautions will also remain in place, such as touchless facets and water fountains, viral reducing ultraviolet lighting, and enhanced cleaning procedures

Will the College continue to provide information on COVID-19 resources such as vaccination clinics, information on testing, etc.

Yes, the College will continue to provide information on available resources regarding COVID-19.

For additional questions or guidance on correct College procedures, please contact Human Resources.

You can contact Human Resources at (850) 201-8510.

Actions to Help Stop the Spread of Germs

The Florida Department of Health recommends taking routine preventative actions to help stop the spread of germs. Symptoms may be flu-like, and the CDC advises that the best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to this virus. Here are everyday actions to help prevent the spread of all respiratory viruses:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
