I had the opportunity to film a brief update video on current college operational plans yesterday in light of the state and national emergency. The video message may be found on Facebook and Twitter.
College officials continue to actively monitor news and information pertaining to the novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19). We remain in regular contact with the Mississippi Department of Health and other health officials, as well as other community colleges and universities in our state and region. The College is committed to taking all necessary precautions to keep our students, faculty, staff, and the community as safe as possible.
Yesterday, Governor Tate Reeves declared a State of Emergency for Mississippi. In his message, he stated, “We must all act together to stop the unnecessary spread of this virus. To that end, we’ve asked citizens to do things that may be hard.” One of the things he mentioned in his message was the recommendation for employees to work from home where possible. Therefore, in an effort to limit the spread of the virus and in keeping with Governor Reeves’ recommendation, only essential personnel will be needed to come in to work this week, March 16-20, 2020. All other employees will work from home, as necessary.
