Cloud County Community College’s leadership and members of its Emergency Management team are constantly evaluating the spread of the virus around the globe and in the United States. The team, working in conjunction with guidelines established by federal, state and local health agencies is charged with ensuring that Cloud’s emergency preparedness plans are up-to-date should the virus reach this area.

“The situation is evolving, and being monitored daily,” said Dr. Adrian Douglas, president of Cloud County. “At this time, there are no immediate threats or cause for alarm. Classes will resume as normal after the spring break holiday on Monday, March 16.”

This is a fluid situation and each Kansas community college has a plan which includes precautions they will be taking with their students, faculty, visitors, and staff, according to Heather Morgan, KACCT executive director.

“Be assured that the situation is being continuously monitored and operations will be adjusted if the situation worsens,” Morgan said. “Student success and safety is in the forefront of each college’s plan. Each college takes the situation seriously, institutes good health practices, implements restrictions to protect health and safety, and continues to monitor the evolving situation. 

“The best course of action for students and parents is to remain informed of the evolving situation, follow each college’s social media stream and website, and remain calm and focused on the successful completion of the semester. Additional information will be released as the situation develops.”
