Fayetteville Technical Community College began its spring semester on Monday, Jan. 11, with most classes being offered online until Jan. 25.
Students should consult their FTCC email accounts and/or their Blackboard accounts for information on their classes and schedules.
FTCC faculty and staff who come to campus are required to provide documentation of negative COVID-19 tests. The College is doing free testing for faculty and staff. Students and others who come to campus are not required to obtain a negative COVID-19 test but are required to follow the College’s safety protocols, including:
- Proper wearing of face coverings at all times when inside campus buildings and outside when social distancing from others is not possible
- Maintaining 6 feet of social distancing from others whenever possible
- Washing or sanitizing hands frequently
- Undergoing and passing a temperature check once each day on campus
- Wearing the wristband provided by the College upon passing the daily temperature check (the wristband must be worn on the wrist)
- Following all other COVID-19 safety protocols at FTCC, including immediately informing the College if you test positive for COVID-19 or know or suspect you have been exposed to the virus
FTCC’s protocols are aimed at safeguarding the health, safety and security of students, faculty, staff, and the community at large. FTCC is not aware of any positive cases of COVID contracted on its campus during the fall semester. With COVID cases rising in the state and the nation following the holidays, the College has increased its vigilance at maintaining safety, including pushing most classes online until Jan. 25 and requiring negative COVID tests of employees. Going forward, FTCC asks everyone to obey all safety protocols on campus and, just as importantly, to behave safely off campus as well.
“We have a plan that has been shown to work,” said FTCC President Dr. Larry Keen. “We are operating with extreme care and intend to continue helping our students reach their educational goals and graduate on time.”
