Your health and safety, as well as that of our students, is always our primary concern.
SCC continues to be vigilant in its commitment to safe face-to-face instruction. Below please find important updated
information on the College’s pandemic protocols prior to Aug. 22, the first day of the 2022 Fall Semester.
The College’s COVID Guidance Documents (login required), located on The Hub (login required), will continue

Thank you for your patience and support. The College is committed to transparent and frequent communication to ensure
the safety and wellness of its employees, students and communities.
The College has provided a safe return to in-person instruction since Fall 2020 and learned much in the past two
years in response to safety concerns. Vaccination continues to be the leading public health prevention
strategy to manage the COVID-19 pandemic, and prevention strategies to mitigate the spread of the virus remain
critical to protect everyone. As we transition into the 2022-2023 academic year, we continue to work closely with
our local health departments and will implement additional strategies when needed throughout the academic year.
With our past experience in safety and response protocols, and with the extensive information available to us today,
we shift into ongoing management of the virus in accordance with CDC and local public health guidance. The
availability and use of at-home testing and access to directions on exposure, symptoms, and positive test protocols
often results in individuals managing their illness without the internal need of SCC case managers.
Beginning July 1, 2022, the COVID-19 protocols for exposures, symptoms, positive results are:
We are no longer asking students and employees to submit a TIPS report for exposures, symptoms, or
We are no longer employing case managers to provide instruction to students or employees.
Please follow these steps unless notified otherwise by the College in accordance with county health officials.
Residence Hall students: Students living on campus are encouraged to be up to date on all
vaccinations due to the higher risk of a spread of illness in residence facilities. Please contact Residence
Life Staff immediately if you are exposed, symptomatic, or test positive for COVID-19.
Additional safety protocols to be considered:
In addition to the above exposure, positive, or symptomatic protocols, other safety precautions that may be
considered include, but may not be limited to:
Wear a Face Covering:
Anyone needing further assistance or instruction is encouraged to contact Campus Safety & Security OR the
Campus Dean of Students/Assistant Campus Director.
