A Message to Members of the WCCCD Family Regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19):

To continue to keep our students, faculty, staff, and community safe “at home” during this unprecedented time, Wayne County Community College District is transitioning all face-to-face courses, including online courses with labs, to Alternative Instruction Models effective Friday, April 17, 2020. Distance learning courses and any other online courses will also resume April 17.

Additionally, WCCCD is extending the 2020 Spring Semester by four weeks, ending June 9, to allow the time to accomplish learning outcomes. Your instructor has been asked by the District to contact you on how your individual classes will be conducted no later than Wednesday, April 8.

Alternative Instructive Methods can incorporate lessons received via email, telephone, virtual office hours, teleconference, video conference, webinars or additional methods. Given the nature of some of our programs, your instructor may use a combination of some, or all of these methods to complete instruction.

This is an unprecedented action taken by WCCCD during an unprecedented time. We continue to monitor the situation and are in daily contact with the CDC, as well as local and state officials, as the COVID-19 situation is fast changing.

Please continue to monitor your WCCCD email, the college’s website at www.wcccd.edu for any new information. Please also consider signing up for our text alert system through Web-Gate.  We will share any new announcements through all of these channels.


What You Can Do to Stay Healthy

The most effective way to minimize risk and prevent the spread of Coronavirus is to follow the tried and true rules of proper hygiene.

  • Stay home from work, school or social settings if you have flu-like symptoms, especially if you have a fever.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently. Use warm water and work up a robust lather of soap, rub and scrub for at least 20 seconds.
  • If you’re out and don’t have access to a sink, use an alcohol-based sanitizer (60%, or greater alcohol content).
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth - especially important after touching common surfaces - until you can wash your hands.
  • If you feel a sneeze or cough building, quickly move away from people and sneeze or cough into a tissue, your shirt or elbow. Immediately throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Avoid close contact, such as shaking hands, kissing, and sharing cups or eating utensils with ill people
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces in shared spaces using disinfectants effective on coronaviruses. These include isopropyl alcohol or ethyl alcohol (60%+), dilute bleach (follow manufacturer recommendations for concentration for disinfecting), or dilute hydrogen peroxide, amongst other things.
