Summer Quarter Welcome and COVID-19 Protocol
WELCOME TO SUMMER QUARTER
Summer Quarter starts Tuesday, July 6, and the college will operate mostly as we have this academic year with a few changes. Many of you know that the governor has lifted most COVID-19 restrictions and issued new guidelines for higher education institutions (IHEs). RTC falls under the category of an “IHE without fully vaccinated campus” (pp. 4-6). RTC will continue with restrictions to protect everyone in our community while we work through the complexities of the new regulations.
- Masks are still required indoors on campus, even if you are vaccinated. COVID-19 is still spreading in the community, and health officials warn the new Delta variant is more contagious and dangerous than previous strains.
- Students and employees on campus can reduce social distancing from six feet to three feet. We continue to urge you to limit your close contact with others on campus, particularly if you have not been vaccinated.
- Faculty, staff, and students must complete a daily health screening. We have shortened this access form to make it simpler to complete.
- Protocols will be updated in the future to reflect requirements about individual vaccination status information and other matters.
IN-PERSON STUDENT SERVICES
All offices will continue to provide remote service, but limited in-person Student Services resume Tuesday. Most offices will be open Mondays and Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Please visit our Summer Hours page for exact hours and locations.
Vaccines have proven highly effective against COVID-19, even the variants. If you have not been vaccinated, we strongly encourage you to do so! Find a location.
Stay safe, and good luck with Summer Quarter.
