Coronavirus (COVID-19) Notifications
Clackamas Community College is closely monitoring the worldwide situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and continues to follow the guidance of the Oregon Health Authority, Clackamas County Public Health Department and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
A novel coronavirus is a new coronavirus that has not been previously identified. The virus causing coronavirus disease 2019, otherwise known as COVID-19, is not the same as coronaviruses that commonly circulate among humans and cause mild illness, like the common cold.
The college is participating in statewide measures to slow the spread of COVID-19 in Oregon. Clackamas Community College has established a Rapid Response Team to assess and communicate the impacts of the coronavirus on the college community. We will continue
to update this page as we have new information to share.
May 13, 2020: Message to CCC students
This Friday we will start to see some openings across the state amid the coronavirus pandemic. However, we still do not know when Clackamas County will begin to reopen and to what degree. Because of this, we have decided to move fall term online, with
some exceptions for particular programs.
As a reminder, the date fall registration opens was moved to June 1 to allow more time for faculty to plan for classes and for us to better define which classes are remote and which ones are online. “Remote” means classes will be taught at
a set time and day each week, and “online” means there is no dedicated time and day to meet as a class.
The decision to remain online is not an easy one as we would like to open our doors and see our campuses filled with students, staff, and faculty again. But we want to provide as much certainty as we can to you now, so you can plan for the fall. If businesses
start to open up more over the summer and rules for social distancing are loosened, we may be able to offer face-to-face classes. We will be closely monitoring this.
Your safety is of the upmost importance to me. We have a team that is planning how we can safely open the college when the time is right (even if we are not having face-to-face classes) so we can serve students in person.
COVID-19 and related shutdowns are becoming much longer than many of us anticipated and hoped. Many of you are tired. Many of you are frustrated. And, I think all of us would like this to be over. I want to ensure that CCC is here for you. We are dedicated to your education and together, we will get through this.
Dr. Tim Cook
President, Clackamas Community College
