In order to monitor, prepare for and respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19) threat, Montgomery Community College is taking steps to actively protect the health of our students, employees and their families.

The college is working with state agencies to keep the public informed, and is proactively preparing for any potential risk.
While the possibility for exposure is still low in North Carolina, Montgomery Community College is taking the following precautionary steps:
1. The college’s administration reviewed its internal plans and policies regarding pandemics, communicable diseases, and exposure control and remains in a state of readiness should it be necessary to implement the plans.
2. The college has shared information received from the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS), Governor Cooper’s task force, and the Montgomery County Health Department on preventive measures to keep from spreading respiratory illnesses.
3. The college’s Facebook and Instagram pages provided links to the NCDHHS website where individuals can obtain the most reliable, up-to-date information about COVID-19.
4. The college is working closely with Montgomery County Schools in a coordinated effort to communicate with employees, students, parents and families about what steps are being taken in response to COVID-19.
If the college receives confirmation that the potential exists for a pandemic, the college’s emergency management team will be activated. This team determines the college functioning based on how far the illness has already spread.
As always, the health and safety of students, employees, and the public are of utmost importance. In the event of an actual pandemic, the college will work with state and local public health officials and other authorities to begin containment measures including temporarily closing the college.
