    Your health and safety, as well as that of our students, is our primary concern as we continue to operate during the pandemic.

    On Nov. 4, the federal government set Jan. 4, 2022, as the deadline for companies with 100 or more employees to mandate COVID-19 vaccinations or start weekly testing of their unvaccinated workers. This Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulation will force the companies to require unvaccinated workers to test negative for COVID-19 at least once a week and wear a mask while in the workplace. Also, federal workers and employees of contractors that do business with the federal government will be required to be vaccinated.

    After consulting with legal counsel, the current mandate does not apply to Southeast Community College. SCC is excluded from OSHA because of its political subdivision status and, while the exact definitions under the Executive Order are not clear, SCC should not constitute a federal contractor.

    While the College is not requiring the vaccine as a condition of employment, it continues to encourage all employees to get vaccinated. The College will continue to monitor local and federal government mandates and Directed Health Measures and will communicate any changes to employees.

    SCC continues to follow the latest DHM issued by the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department. Masks are required to be worn by all individuals over age 2, regardless of vaccination status, in indoor spaces at SCC when at least 6 feet of distance cannot be maintained.
