Neosho County Community College Response to Coronavirus (COVID-19) Situation
Official Statement from NCCC President, Dr. Brian Inbody
Ottawa Campus Moved to Phase III, Chanute Campus Remains in Phase III
With the Governor’s Executive Orders now expired, the Ad Astra Plan is now essentially a set of recommendations. Individual counties in Kansas have the ability to set a phase level or remove all restrictions.
Franklin County has moved to Phase III of the Ad Astra Plan. As a result, the Core Emergency Response Team (CERT) has adjusted the level of the Ottawa Campus to Level III. Campus events/group meetings can be scheduled for groups of 45 or less.
Officials in Neosho County have removed all restrictions as of May 29, 2020. As a result of this action, the Chanute Campus of NCCC moved to Level III of the Ad Astra Plan on June 1. Groups of 45 or less are allowed on campus.
All campus buildings at both Chanute and Ottawa are currently open to the public for normal summer hours, 7:30am to 5:30pm. Summer hours are Monday through Thursday (closed on Fridays). Athletic facilities are open to the public if properly scheduled, approved by the Vice President of Operations, and under 45 participants.
When visiting campus, social distancing remains recommended, as is the wearing of masks. Additional physical modifications have been made to the buildings, including clear barriers, frequent cleaning, hand sanitizing stations, and social distancing reminders.
Students and community members are able to access services face-to-face during normal business hours. Students are also able to communicate with college personnel remotely for services such as advising, financial aid, cashier, and tutoring. Contact information for various services can be found in the links below.
