As COVID infection rates in the region continue to drop significantly, and the number of cases reported on NCC’s campus remain low, the college will resume on-campus classes for all programs on Monday, January 31, as planned.

As a result, any on-ground class that had temporarily moved on-line at the beginning of the spring semester will meet in person beginning January 31. Students should reach out their advisor, Success Navigator or professor with questions regarding class schedules. 

Students, faculty and staff members are required to wear a mask at all times when on campus. The college is strongly recommending all those on campus wear a N95, KN95 or surgical mask versus a traditional fabric mask because of the greater protection they offer. Neck gaiters are no longer acceptable as a masking option at NCC.

Surgical masks will be available to those who need them beginning January 31 at the Health Center and individual school dean’s offices in Bethlehem, at the Keystone Hall front desk in Monroe, and at the front desk at the Fowler Center. N95 masks will also be available at the same locations beginning in early February.

Unvaccinated individuals must complete the Health Check in the NCC mobile app before coming to campus and students must display their NCC identification card at all times when on campus. 

Members of the NCC campus community who believe they may have been exposed to someone who has COVID, or have personally been infected with COVID, should contact the Health Center at or 610-861-5365 and follow the protocols here for quarantining and returning to campus.
