How Does Jefferson County’s COVID-19 Status Impact Jefferson College? 

The Jefferson College Return to Campus Plan is not based solely on the status of Jefferson County. A possible shift to "Red" status does not dictate an immediate closure of the College. At this time, the College will continue to follow the processes and procedures that have been implemented along with ongoing contact tracing to make sure that students and employees are safe. The College is already in alignment with recommendations for schools associated with a county wide "red" designation.  

We continue to make the health and safety of employees, students, and campus visitors the highest priority as we respond to issues surrounding COVID-19. Thank you for continuing to work together for the safety of our college community. Each one of us has an important responsibility to minimize the spread of COVID and all viruses.

Who to contact at Jefferson College if you have COVID-19 symptoms?

  • Student Contact Tracer - Tina Robinson,
  • Employee Contact Tracer - Chris Stanfill,

Mask Guidelines & Social Distancing

The College continues to operate using best practice protocols and procedures designed to protect all students and employees, including the requirement that everyone must wear a mask when inside a campus facility (with limited exceptions). 

Under recent guidance by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Jefferson County Health Department, please note the following new guidelines that were recently issued concerning masks that will be incorporated into the Return to Campus Plan:

Type of Mask

  • CDC does not recommend the use of face shields alone. Face shields can be worn when an individual meets the exclusion category.
  • CDC does not recommend the use of a single layer gaiter. Appropriate gaiters consist of two layers.
  • Wear masks with two or more layers.
  • Wear the mask over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin.
  • Do NOT wear masks intended for healthcare workers, for example, N95 respirators.

Social Distancing: Social distancing will also be enforced in all campus buildings and classrooms with a minimum of six feet where possible.
