TCC is Safety Focused
TCC works hard to ensure we are helping to keep our students, faculty and staff are safe. We follow all required guidance on operating the TCC campus and employ these basic tactics in fighting COVID-19 transmission:
- requiring college employees to be fully vaccinated or have an approved exemption
- requiring college students to self-attest their vaccination or exemption status
- strongly encouraging the use of masks
- washing hands
- cleaning and disinfecting
- Air filtration system has been upgraded to MERV-13

If we have suspended operations, you will be notified through our TCC Alerts (Omnilert) system that sends out calls, emails and text messages. Now is a great time to sign up for Omnilert or check and make sure your notification settings are correct. We also post messages on Facebook and Twitter, update the website, alert the news media, update the hotline and send out emails. Please be aware of these communication channels.
Stigma Related to COVID-19
Misinformation about coronavirus can create fear and hostility that hurts people and makes it harder to keep everyone healthy. We’re stronger as a community when we stand together against discrimination. Discrimination based on ethnicity or ancestry will make the situation worse. Having Chinese ancestry – or any other ancestry – does not make a person more vulnerable to this illness. Coronavirus doesn't recognize race, nationality nor ethnicity. Please help stop fear and discrimination by letting people know that being of Asian descent does not increase the chance of getting or spreading COVID-19. You can read more about this here and help fight stigma.
