Important Updates Regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Published Wednesday, March 11, 2020 - 8:01am

Dear Maricopa,

Despite the increasing severity of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak globally, at the time of this email on March 11, 2020, there are no reported cases of Coronavirus within the Maricopa community of students, faculty, and staff.

At this time, the Maricopa Community Colleges will remain open, and classes following our Spring Break schedule will resume next week. In the event of a College or campus closure, information will be shared immediately through email, Twitter, Facebook, and our website. All members of the Maricopa community are urged to sign up for Rave Alert to receive emergency text alerts. If you have already signed up, please log in to ensure that your contact information is up-to-date.

I understand the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 has created anxiety, concern, and, in many cases, fear. It is important during these uncertain times to support one another. COVID-19 is a virus that can affect all humans, and we ask that you remain kind and respect one another, continuing to support our community.

MCCCD’s Continuity Response Team (CRT) continues to actively consult with the Maricopa County Public Health Department. We will provide regular updates and advisories on our website with current information from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The health and well-being of the Maricopa community is our top priority. If you are feeling ill, please take care of yourself by following these recommendations from the CDC. Together, we will navigate through this time of uncertainty.

Please continue to check your emails for updates and, you can find ongoing information on our website: https://www.maricopa.edu/coronavirus-2019-nCoV

Sincerely,

Steven
