Governor Cooper’s Executive Order Number 215 included the following changes for the entire state with some limited exceptions:
- No statewide face covering mandate
- No mandatory mass gathering limits
- No mandatory capacity limits
- No mandatory social distancing requirements
Effective immediately, Coastal Carolina Community College will not impose any additional restrictions beyond those in the Governor’s Executive Order Number 215 dated May 14, 2021. Face coverings, which are available on campus, and social distancing protocols are still highly encouraged for unvaccinated individuals.
It’s important to note the following:
- Nothing prevents employees or students from continuing to wear face coverings if they choose to do so.
- Individuals should not be asked to disclose their vaccination status or why they are wearing a face covering. This is private information and the personal nature of this information should be respected at all times.
- During this transition, please be patient as our employees and students continue to protect themselves on campus.
- If you teach in-person, or attend class, at an off-campus site, please adhere to the requirements of that instructional site.
- Please continue to report COVID-19-related symptoms, exposure, and diagnosis by email to CDEmployee@coastalcarolina.edu or CDStudent@coastalcarolina.edu.
- As vaccination appointments are widely available, Coastal employees and students are encouraged to be vaccinated. Vaccinations help keep our community healthy. For the latest COVID-19 vaccination information, visit onslowcountync.gov/1809/COVID-19-Vaccine.
