Steps STCC is Taking to Help Protect You

The STCC Facilities Department is ensuring that all wall-mounted hand sanitizer dispensers are replenished. Additional free-standing dispensers are also being set-up at building entrances and in public areas especially during public events.

STCC Facilities, IT, and Library staff will increase the frequency of cleaning public spaces and computer labs.  

The STCC Health & Wellness Center located in Building 19 (room 177) has tissues and hand sanitizer on-hand and available for distribution.    

Best Practices to Protect Yourself

The STCC Health & Wellness Center reminds all students, faculty, and staff to remember these tips to avoid spreading any respiratory virus, including COVID-19. If you are symptomatic, the CDC recommends you stay home and contact your primary care provider.

If you are feeling ill and please do not come to campus to be tested for COVID-19. Instead, use drive-through testing sites which you can find through local healthcare facilities. Free testing is provided by the state through the Stop the Spread Campaign. Details can be found on the Stop the Spread website.

These simple steps will help to prevent the spread of all respiratory viruses (including flu) and promote a healthier campus community.
