STCC Response to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response
This website provides the latest campus news and comprehensive information about the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) on the STCC community.
STCC is closely monitoring coronavirus (COVID-19) developments and is in constant contact with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. The college is also following guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control.
STCC is online for fall with some limited low-density labs on campus.
Stop the Spread - Springfield
STCC is hosting a free Stop the Spread COVID-19 test center in Student Lot #3 (located at 490 Union Street, behind the former Burger King). This free drive-up, walk-up testing site is operated by Fallon EMS. For hours of operation see the Mass.gov Stop the Spread Springfield site.
Face coverings are mandatory, except in cases where an individual requests an accommodation. Be advised that no one will be allowed to enter the building without a face covering. Individuals are urged to properly cover their nose and mouth. Specific campus or lab mask protocols must be adhered to. Students attending clinicals or co-ops must also adhere to site-specific protocols.
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”), enables STCC to provide eligible students with grant support to help you cover expenses incurred due to campus disruption related to COVID-19. Apply for funding from STCC through the CARES Act.
