**Due to high and substantial COVID-19 transmission in the region, masks are currently required indoors at all Southwestern Community College locations. More info.**
**Please Note: If you are unvaccinated and have been in close contact (within 6 feet for a cumulative 15 minutes or longer over a 24-hour period) of someone who tested positive, you will have to quarantine for 14 days - meaning you will be unable to attend class in that span.**
**If not feeling well, please download our SCC Alert App and take our COVID-19 Self Assessment before coming to an SCC location. If you answer YES to any of the questions, go/stay home and call your healthcare provider**
If you want to get the COVID-19 vaccine, please contact your local health department (following are links to the ones in our service area):
