In response to current COVID-19 conditions, staff members continue to work mostly off-campus. Services are still being provided, both on campus and remotely, during regular business hours Monday through Thursday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Friday 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. There will be no disruption to services, but some processes may take longer to complete. Staff members will continue to provide access to on-campus resources such as the Food Pantry, Library, and Bookstore, but we encourage you to take advantage of remote services whenever possible. For those who do need to come to campus, the College continues to conduct enhanced cleaning protocols and we ask everyone to wear a mask, maintain social distance, and practice frequent handwashing/sanitizing.
Services are available via e-mail, telephone, and/or videoconferencing. E-mail is the most reliable way to communicate. Phone calls may go to voicemail, so please leave a message and we will return your call. You can also schedule a virtual meeting to talk with staff members in real-time. These measures are in the best interest of everyone’s health and safety and they allow us to continue providing services in the most safe and effective way possible. Contact information for the services and resources listed below is available on the College’s website www.wilsoncc.edu. We are here for you so please let us know how we can meet your needs.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work together to keep WCC and the community healthy.
Wilson Community College is monitoring ongoing Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) updates from local, state, and national authorities. As facts develop, we intend to provide accurate and timely information whenever warranted.
In response to the dangerously high rate of COVID-19 cases, the Governor’s Executive Order #180 went into effect on 11/25/2020.
The most recent Executive Order is an expansion of the previous mandate (EO #169) and specifies that face coverings must be worn in any place outside the home, under the following conditions:
- Face Coverings must be worn indoors if anyone else is in that space who is not a member of the same household.
- Face Coverings must be worn outdoors if it is not possible to consistently be more than six (6) feet apart from non-household members.
Exceptions: Face coverings are not required for people who have a medical/behavioral condition or disability (proof of condition or disability not required – EO #169). Also, wearing a mask in certain working conditions is not required if it creates a safety risk, as determined by local, state, or federal workplace safety guidelines.
Please continue to minimize face-to-face contact with others on campus whenever possible, and be diligent in wearing a mask/face covering in any setting where you anticipate contact with others, i.e. common areas, hallways, restrooms. The campus community has been vigilant in exercising precautions and we strongly encourage you continue practicing good judgment and discipline in wearing a mask/face covering, maintaining social distance, and frequently hand washing/sanitizing. These measures have helped ensure that there have been no COVID-19 clusters or any known instances of community transmission on campus. We sincerely appreciate your help in keeping WCC safe for everyone.
The NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) has launched a new app to help slow the spread of COVID-19 that notifies anyone who has been exposed to COVID-19. It also allows you to anonymously share a positive COVID-19 test result, should you have one. This is one small step that can make a big impact.
- Download the free SlowCOVIDNC Exposure Notification app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
- Enable Bluetooth and Exposure Notifications, and then opt to receive notifications
- You’re all set! You will now be notified if you have been in close contact with someone who has shared a positive COVID-19 test result in the app. SlowCOVIDNC protects your identity and is completely anonymous.
