DCCC COVID-19 Update: March 16, 2020

Dear DCCC Community,

As you are aware, the recommendations and requirements issued by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and NC Department of Health are evolving rapidly. Davidson County Community College remains committed to taking the necessary steps to ensure the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and community. 

Based on the latest developments and recommended best practices by state and federal authorities, DCCC will transition to an alternate operations model starting Tuesday, March 17, 2020. Faculty and staff with the ability to work remotely will begin doing so on Tuesday. Additional communications will be provided by supervisors to address remote work plans. 

Business operations will continue, with phone lines and email communications remaining open. 

Campus Updates: 

VITA tax services have been suspended.

The Child Development Center will be closed through March 30, 2020. Parents will be kept up-to-date by the Center Director as additional information becomes available. During this unprecedented time, the College will apply payments that have been made to a child’s account for care when the Child Development Center reopens.  

Many of you may be aware that our Davidson Campus is hosting the Centers for Disease Control National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). This community health survey and the four mobile units are unrelated to the current COVID-19 developments and will be removed within the next several weeks as the survey ends.

Student Updates: 

Students will remain on extended Spring Break through March 22, 2020. This includes Curriculum, Continuing Education, ESL, Adult High School, and High School Equivalency.  Dual-enrolled students participating in Early College High School or Career and College Promise (CCP) programs should follow the same guidelines as traditional College students.

Clinicals and work-based learning are currently suspended.

We recognize transitioning to online courses will be an adjustment for many students and are committed to helping students succeed. 

  • Support services including but not limited to counseling, tutoring, technology support, food pantry (by appointment), and guidance related to COVID-19 are available. Students may visit the Student Resources webpage to access more information about available resources. 
  • All due dates and deadlines in courses will be adjusted for the extension of Spring Break, and those adjustments will be communicated by individual instructors. Questions or concerns unable to be addressed by the faculty member should be directed to the Associate Dean responsible for the course/discipline.

We are in uncharted waters and are committed to being as flexible as possible as we support our students. Increasing evidence shows that we all must do our part to help lessen the spread of this virus. 

Important Reminders: 

  • COVID-19 symptoms include cough, fever, and shortness of breath. 
  • Stay home if you are sick or if you have a compromised immune system. Contact your primary care physician.
  • Scientific and medical evidence is increasingly demonstrating the urgency of social distancing in slowing the spread of COVID-19. We ask you to implement these practices yourself and with family and friends — stay home to the extent possible, avoid crowds, keep at least 6 feet between yourself and others, and wash your hands frequently.
