COVID-19 Coronavirus Information

Update: April 1, 2020

The QVCC Foundation Scholarship period has closed

Updated as of Wednesday, March 18, 2020

Over the last few days it has become clear that the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to have far reaching implications for educational institutions, including QVCC. These implications make it difficult for us to continue campus operations in a manner that will ensure the health and safety of QVCC students while on campus. For this reason, it is necessary for us to move all QVCC courses online for the remainder of the semester. In addition, the QVCC campus will remain closed to the general public. These necessary steps will assist in promoting social distancing, which is the state’s public health efforts to slow the spread of this virus. Unfortunately, this also means that QVCC’s spring commencement will be cancelled.

In the coming days and weeks you will be receiving additional details on the transition to online courses and plans for the College to recognize our 2020 graduates. I know the sacrifices our graduates have made, how hard they have worked and I am committed to exploring ways to celebrate their success, even if not in person!

Although our campus is closed, QVCC faculty and staff continue to be available remotely via email and phone. Please continue to check your QVCC email, QVCC website, Facebook and Instagram accounts for updates, notices and announcements.

Students  should reach out to their instructors regarding access to online courses on Blackboard. If you need assistance securing consistent access to the Internet, please contact M’lyn Hines, 860-932-4056.

As the global COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak continues to intensify, we are taking every precaution to mitigate any potential impact on campus. Working with the CSCU System Office and under directives issued by President Ojakian and Governor Lamont, Quinebaug Valley Community College is trying to be as proactive as possible, amid the rapidly evolving nature of this public health situation.

At this time, while there have been no confirmed cases of the novel (new) coronavirus (COVID-19) at QVCC, a few cases have appeared in Connecticut. This is a rapidly evolving situation, and the risk assessment will be updated as needed.

All of us on campus are collectively responsible for the health of our community. Everyone – regardless of whether you have recently traveled – should continue following some basic steps to protect yourself from coronavirus and other communicable illnesses:

Spring Break Travel Information

As we approach Spring Break, we want to share some additional information and resources that could help inform your travel plans:

CSCU President Mark Ojakian strongly discourages personal travel outside of the state of Connecticut during spring break due to the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus across the country and abroad. All institutionally sponsored out-of-state travel has been frozen until further notice.  If you already have bookings and do decide to pursue personal travel, please share some basic information about your travel plans with the college so that we have the background knowledge we need to keep our campus safe and healthy for all.

The Centers for Disease Control have listed a number of travel alerts. We encourage all faculty, staff and students to be prudent in their travel choices and continue to monitor changes in travel alerts and to monitor ongoing guidance from the U.S Department of State and the Centers for Disease Control.

If you are planning to travel internationally during spring break we recommend that you consider registering with the U.S. Department of State Smart Traveler program. This is a free service that helps to keep you connected and receive safety information to help make informed decisions about your travel.

Traveling Abroad or Out of State for Spring Break
If you are traveling abroad or out of state during spring break, we ask you to share some basic information with us so that we have the background knowledge we need to keep our campus safe and healthy for all.
