News from the President of Tidewater Community College

Dear TCC Family –

Due to the increase in COVID-19 cases, the spread of the omicron variant, and out of an abundance of caution, we will implement a remote work and learning environment until January 18, 2022. As we have since the pandemic began, we will lead with the safety of our campus community in mind. We will continue to monitor the effects of this pandemic in our community, reevaluate, and adjust as needed. Although the campuses are closed to most employees, the College remains open.

Beginning now and continuing until January 18:

  • To foster the person-to-person interaction that our classes provide, we will temporarily switch all in-person classes to synchronous online delivery.
  • All critical infrastructure employees will continue to report to work. All other campus employees should work remotely. Employees with questions about whether to report to work should contact their supervisor.
  • All on-campus events and activities are moved to virtual – including the upcoming Convocation/Learning Institute.
  • TCC will continue our COVID-19 protocols concerning mask wearing. Masking indoors will continue throughout TCC to reduce the transmission of COVID-19.
  • N95 Masks will be available for faculty and staff upon return to campus and upon request.
  • During this remote time-frame, cleaning protocols will be increased in the buildings where students and staff are present.

We remain hopeful that this is a temporary measure and will continue to analyze the latest data. We anticipate that we will be able to resume in-person classes and activities soon. Please continue to check your emails and the TCC coronavirus website for the latest information.

As you prepare to enjoy the dawn of a New Year, please do so safely. The omicron variant spreads rapidly, but we are confident that by adhering to the safety measures that have guided us through this pandemic, we can make a quick return to campus.

I thank each of you for your service to TCC, our students and community.

Marcia Conston
