Update – DECEMBER 4, 2020
Greetings Central Coast College Students,
With COVID-19 (coronavirus) on the rise, flu season upon us and, the holidays fast approaching, we must continue to take proactive steps to maintain a safe environment for you and others while on campus. Due to the rise, it is imperative that we remind you that it is critical that you do not report to class or campus if you have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID or you yourself are experiencing respiratory symptoms such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills or fatigue. Currently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that individuals remain at home until at least 24 hours after they are free of fever (100 degrees F or 37.8 degrees C) or signs of a fever without the use of fever-reducing medications.
EVERYONE is required to do the following:
- Stay home when you are sick (be sure to notify your instructor).
- Wash your hands frequently with warm, soapy water for at least 20 seconds.
- Cover your mouth with tissues whenever you sneeze, and discard used tissues in the trash.
- Avoid people who are sick with respiratory symptoms.
- Clean frequently touched surfaces.
- Ensure you are wearing your masks and/or appropriate PPE gear while on campus at all times. (NEVER REMOVE YOUR MASK)
- Friends and family will not be permitted on campus, Only Students.
- Students will not be allowed to leave campus during breaks.
- Breaks will be limited to 5-10 minutes and should be done on an individual basis. (Only as needed)
- And lastly, practice social distancing whenever possible.
As additional information is received from our Health Officials, Governor or Mayor’s Offices, we will ensure that everyone is kept informed if there will be any changes or adjusts pertaining to COVID-19. We remain an essential business and continue to operate as such.
Please be advised effective Monday, December 7, 2020 the following measures will be put into effect.
For Central Coast College:
If your Class ended at 11:00 am – Class will now end at 10:30am

Dear CCC Students,
We have been monitoring the COVID-19 situation and wanted to provide you with an update after today’s news conference from Governor Newsom. It remains the same as the original written Order from the Health Officer “Educational institutions (including public and private k-12 schools, colleges and universities) for the purposes of facilitating distance learning or performing essential functions (limited lab), provided that social distancing is maintained to the greatest extent as possible.”
All students attending limited lab classes, VN Clinicals and Externships unless notified from the site, “they are ordered to close” we are to continue business as usual. We can still meet with individuals on a one-on- one basis for new student enrollment or any other essential duties that assist in any new students in getting them prepared for online learning. At this point, our staff positions remain essential and you should continue to report to work. We are committed to your health and safety and are monitoring and following the directives coming from local, state, and federal officials. It is IMPERATIVE you WEAR YOUR MASK when you are around others. It is for the safety of others and yourself.
Students, thank you for your commitment and dedication to reach and achieve the Education Goals you have set for yourself. I sincerely thank you staff, faculty and the community for serving our students.

Update – MARCH 29, 2020
Dear CCC Students,
During the weekend our Online Learning Management System, Moodle went down. Classes will continue tomorrow as scheduled through Ring Central Meetings. Your instructor will be in contact with you via email or CourseKey chat to provide you with the link or meeting ID for Ring Central to get into class online. Your instructor has a plan and will provide you with instructions regarding your weekly objectives, assignments, homework and testing. We sincerely apologize for this set back, we are moving quickly to restore the online instructional delivery and are confident we will maintain a quality delivery of education until we have Moodle restored. Please follow your instructors directions and thank you for your patience.

Update – MARCH 17, 2020
Dear Central Coast Students, Faculty and Staff,
We have been monitoring the COVID-19 situation overnight and are aware that Monterey County has ordered a “Shelter in Place” order throughout the entire county effective at midnight, tonight.
Central Coast College Students we have a plan. We have faculty that have prepared course resources and materials to be distributed this evening or emailed to each student. It will be a manual process for a few days. Central Coast Program Directors, Sharon Willis and Maria Ortega, are in Lancaster getting trained to move all of our Central Coast Programs online.
We have taken the data you have provided, related to your online readiness, and we will start scheduling training. We are working to get our programs online and train students on how to shift to an online learning environment by next Monday, March 23. Your instructors will be contacting you to organize training to shift to online. It will begin this Thursday and Friday – March 19 – March 20. As I have previously shared with you, the new learning environment will be “Live Online” where the faculty and students attend the classes in an online environment together at regularly scheduled times. Rather than the faculty being in front of the class, they will be in an online environment with the students.
Comcast is offering free internet access for 60 days to low income students. Click here for information: https://www.internetessentials.com/covid19
Central Coast College will be prepared for classes to be conducted in an online environment beginning the week of March 23.
For labs, we will move to online simulation. We are still working through those details.
Clinicals for all programs will not be disrupted unless the site instructs the students not to attend. The student should contact the campus if they receive this notice and we will plan accordingly for their next steps.
All staff we are assessing their online capabilities to have them work from home and will be in contact this week.
We remain confident that we can maintain our institution through this COVID-19 crisis. Thank you for your passion, dedication and commitment. We will be in touch as changes continue to occur.
We will continue to monitor and evaluate the status of the situation rigorously and communicate any changes via email and text. Please refer to this website for the most recent updates:

Below are some guidelines of what you can do right now.
- Wash your hands ─ thoroughly and constantly. Remind each other. Take pride in it. Make up silly songs that last the recommended 20 seconds so it won’t seem like such an eternity.
- If you have symptoms including fever, cough, or shortness of breath, contact your own doctor as soon as possible.
- Stay home if you are sick. If you are at school and feel sick, we encourage you to go home. If you are unable to do so, each campus has a designated sick room. Please ask your instructor about the location.
- Avoid personal travel, is possible, to any place where there is community spread of coronavirus, including in the U.S., because if you do so, it may become necessary for you to self-isolate before returning to class to avoid unwittingly spreading the virus to our community.
