Face Covering and Social Distancing Guidelines
updated May 17, 2021
In light of Governor Cooper’s announcement on Friday, May 14, 2021, Cape Fear Community College is amending our face covering and social distancing restrictions.
Governor Cooper’s announcement included the following changes for the entire state with some limited expectations:
- No statewide (face covering) mask mandate
- No mandatory mass gathering limits
- No mandatory capacity limits
- No mandatory social distancing requirements
Effective immediately, Cape Fear Community College will not impose any additional restrictions beyond those in Friday’s executive order. Face coverings and social distancing protocols, while still encouraged for unvaccinated people, will not be required except where noted below.
It’s important to note the following:
- Child Development Center staff members, students working in the CDC, and visitors to the CDC must continue to wear face coverings until otherwise notified. College employees working in the Child Development Center for any reason must also wear a face covering while inside the facility.
- If you teach in person at a public school, you should adhere to the requirements of that instructional site.
- Nothing prevents employees or students from continuing to wear face coverings if they choose to do so.
- Individuals should not be asked to disclose their vaccination status or why they are wearing a face covering. This is private information and should be respected at all times.
- During this transition, please be patient as our employees and students make their own decisions about how to continue to protect themselves on campus. For instance, if you meet with someone in a small space, such as a private office, be mindful your students or fellow employees may request you meet in an alternate location that allows more distance.
- Please continue to report COVID-19 exposure and diagnosis to CFCC by calling the Campus Health Hotline at 910-362-7725.
- Vaccination appointments are widely available , and CFCC encourages faculty, staff, and students to be vaccinated if eligible and medically cleared to do so. Vaccinations help keep our community healthy.
