01/08/2021

WISHING YOU A HEALTHY NEW YEAR

Your Eastern Shore Community College is closely tracking COVID-19 data in our community. There is an alarming surge in cases that should worry all of us. We hope you and those you love are and remain healthy.

ESCC SAFETY PLANS FOR SPRING 

We are still operating under our health safety plan to reduce risk. Many courses are being delivered remotely, most of our staff are working remotely, we’ve reduced access to our buildings, and we are committed to reducing risk through effective mask wearing, social distancing, and cleaning.

YOUR COLLEGE IS OPEN

Although we adjusted some practices to reduce risk to students, staff, and faculty, Your Eastern Shore Community College remains ready to serve you. 

·         Our buildings are open Monday – Thursday, 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and during class meeting times. 

·         For other services Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., please visit our website, call (757)789-1720, or email studentservices@es.vccs.edu.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR ON-CAMPUS STUDENTS

If you are enrolled in a class that will meet on campus, please be sure to follow all risk reducing protocols.

(1)    Be sure your mask fully and tightly covers your nose and mouth at all times.

(2)    Maintain social distancing at all times.

(3)    Report to your instructors any symptoms or exposure you have to others who have tested positive for COVID-19.
