As you may be aware, North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper’s latest Executive Order No. 147 extends Phase 2 of the COVID-19 reopening plans for at least three more weeks. In addition, with the recent increases in positive test results, face coverings or masks will now be required where social distancing is not possible, effective at 5:00 p.m., June 26, 2020. During today’s press conference, the Governor expressed his hope that taking these measures will result in the easing of the Safer at Home Phase 2 restrictions by July 17.
Accordingly, all Coastal Carolina Community College employees, students, and patrons are expected to wear cloth face coverings or disposable masks that cover the nose and mouth while on all campus sites where social distancing of six feet or greater cannot be maintained. Exceptions may apply as reflected in the aforementioned Executive Order. Additional information regarding face coverings or masks is forthcoming through the Office of Personnel and Workplace Safety for employees and the college’s website and/or social media for students and patrons prior to the required implementation time on June 26.
While these protective actions are being taken in an effort to provide for the health, safety, and welfare of our college community, your understanding and cooperation will be appreciated.
