Today, Governor Brown issued a new executive order. Individuals are still allowed to travel for work purposes. In addition, the College will continue to observe social distancing and facilitate telework and work-at-home policies to the maximum extent possible. The college will also dedicate an employee or employees to enforce social distancing, consistent with the Oregon Health Authority guidelines.
Since the computer labs will remain open to provide students with technology, it will be important to ensure the workstations are properly sanitized after every use. Please make sure you follow the rules of social distancing and allow the employees working in the lab to sanitize stations before use. The keyboards and mouse shall be wiped with Clorox wipes (do not spray the keyboard) and the provided disinfectant shall be sprayed on tables, chairs and any other touched surface.
Remember, some buildings will remain locked until April 28. The Ontario Bookstore will remain open Monday through Friday. The Residence Hall will allow NO visitors at this time. The Caldwell Bookstore will be closed until at least Wednesday, March 25, 2020 and possibly all week. Students can call in their orders to Ontario (541-881-5750 or 541-881-5746) or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and can pick up their orders the next day in the student services area in Caldwell. Students may also drive to Ontario to get their books, but if they do, they should call ahead to make sure the book is in stock.
Feeling “cooped” up? Don’t forget that TVCC is offering some great classes during spring term - Yoga, Zumba, Intro to Computers, Business Communications, SQL, Nutrition, Shakespeare, and many more! Just because travel plans and get-togethers may have been postponed, your mind is never cancelled! You know we love that eternal optimist Dr. Seuss and he once said “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” We have even developed a new class called Lifetime Fitness, which will help you maintain your fitness and nutrition goals while at home.
