Operational Update

February 18, 2022

On Monday, the Guilford County Board of Commissioners, serving in the role of the County Board of Health, rescinded the COVID-19 mask mandate. The removal of the mandate was effective immediately.

Therefore, masks are no longer required indoors or outdoors on any GTCC campus, except as required by specific programs due to other regulations from governing bodies or employers. To ensure a smooth transition, this change will be effective, Monday, February 21, 2022, at 6 a.m.

With the removal of the mask requirement, we will follow the guidelines below:

  1. If you feel sick, stay home.
  2. Masks are no longer required indoors or outdoors on any GTCC campus, except as required by specific programs due to other regulations from governing bodies or employers.
  3. Masks may be worn on campus as a personal choice.
  4. All individuals will respect each person's decision to wear or not wear a mask. Individuals will not be asked questions regarding their choice of wearing or not wearing a mask.
  5. The COVID-19 hotline is still operating as a resource for you. Please call 336-334-4822, ext. COVID (26843) if you experience symptoms, test positive, or have a COVID-19 related question. Individuals who call the hotline will be directed on how to proceed with our COVID-19 protocols. Calls are confidential.
  6. We strongly encourage all employees and students to get vaccinated.
  7. Frequent handwashing is encouraged.
  8. Hand sanitizer stations are available on campus.

Increasing the number of vaccinated individuals will enable us to put the pandemic behind us more quickly and effectively. Therefore, we strongly encourage all faculty and staff to get vaccinated.
