WHO IS PERMITTED ON CAMPUS?
Students who are:
Employees, Vendors, and Visitors:
- Essential campus personnel
- Employees completing an essential function
- Employees who have a verifiable on campus appointment
- Vendors who have scheduled business on campus
- Visitors attending authorized events and meetings
All students, employees, vendors, and visitors must complete a Health Screening Questionnaire prior to arriving on campus and are required to wear an approved face covering and go through a screening process once they arrive.
COMPLETE ON-CAMPUS SCREENING
Screening locations for students will be held at the main entrances to Aberdeen, Darlington, and Joppa Halls. Test Center students and students with appointments at the library are asked to screen at Aberdeen Hall. Effective January 25, 2021
MON-FRI: 6:30 AM–3 PM
MON–THU: 7:30 AM–7:30 PM, FRI: 8 AM–3 PM, SAT: 7:30 AM–3 PM
MON–THU: 8 AM–8 PM, FRI: 8 AM–4 PM
Plan to arrive at the screening location closest to your class approximately 30 minutes prior to the start of class*. Once there, a screener will verify your class or appointment time, request the confirmation number provided to you after your Health Screening Questionnaire, and provide you with a wristband. The wristband is good only for the specified time and building and indicates to Public Safety that you have been properly screened. Put it on immediately and wear it the entire time you are on campus.
*Please note that buildings are not open for general access and the screening process is required before entering a building. Anyone with a fever of 100.4 or higher will be asked to leave the campus.
For Employees, Vendors, and Visitors
Screening for employees, vendors and visitors will take place at the side entrance to Joppa Hall, as well as at Aberdeen and Darlington Halls. Arena events will offer screening at the Arena entrance.*
When you arrive at the screening site, a screener will verify your reason for accessing campus, request the confirmation number provided to you after your Health Screening Questionnaire, and provide you with a wristband. The wristband is good only for the specified time and building and indicates to Public Safety that you have been properly screened. Put it on immediately and wear it the entire time you are on campus.
*Please allow up to 30 minutes to get through the screening process.
Resources for Students, Employees, and Community
The College continues to receive questions from students, employees, and the community relating to how the College is handling COVID-19 issues such as availability of technology and internet, and food, family and financial resources that are available. Below we have provided links to some of the most commonly asked questions as well as to services and resources that are available both from the College and the government.
The Report and Recommendations for Reopening Campus (rev. 3/31/2021) outlines a phased reopening plan for the College with each stage contingent on local, state, and federal guidelines, as well as current public health recommendations.
Stage 3, a full reopening of all campus buildings and facilities, will occur only be when the United States has developed effective therapeutic methods and/or a vaccine to combat COVID-19. It is also highly dependent on Governor Hogan’s Maryland Strong: Roadmap to Recovery. At this time it is simply impossible to predict when external conditions will become favorable and allow us to consider a full reopening of campus.
Official Statements Regarding COVID-19
Since the pandemic began, Harford Community College has been committed to providing updates to our community.
