Coronavirus Update

March 11, 2020 | 5:45pm

Dear Students -

With two presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 now identified in southeast Michigan, I wanted to reassure you that we are actively monitoring the evolving situation. We continue to follow the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, the Office of the Governor and the Macomb County Health Department.

It is our goal to balance two imperatives: taking precautions to protect our college community and the communities around us, while continuing to deliver courses and key college services in a manner appropriate to circumstances.

As a result, we will be suspending on-campus, in-person classes beginning at 5 a.m., Thursday, March 12, through Sunday, March 22. This pause will allow us to work through the process of moving most classes online. Current online classes and offsite clinicals will continue as scheduled and will not be affected by this suspension.

We are also cancelling events that involve more than 100 participants through Sunday, April 12.

While the college will be open during the suspension of on-campus, face-to-face instruction, we encourage you to call departments for resources and support rather than first coming to campus.

We will continue to monitor and make adjustments to protect the well-being of the college community. I appreciate your flexibility as we navigate through rapidly evolving circumstances.

James O. Sawyer IV, Ed.D.
Macomb Community College
