Per Interim Chancellor, Steven Gonzales, the return-to-campus target date for most faculty and staff is postponed to Monday, October 5, 2020, at the earliest, in alignment with the timeline in preparation for Spring registration.
We have been closely monitoring local and national COVID-19 data and continue to reassess our phased approach as needed. Each College has significantly limited the number of in-person courses that will be offered in the Fall semester to ensure all of our safety standards are met, and the District is developing a contingency plan in the event that we are again required to move all operations to a fully remote environment. Our Colleges are identifying limited, in-person student enrollment and support services that are necessary to support the success of our most vulnerable students for Fall 2020. Each college may also identify a limited number of faculty and staff who provide academic support services in controlled, on-campus learning spaces. Updated: August 24, 2020
Keeping You Safe on Campus
PVCC’s guiding principle during this pandemic is protecting the safety, health, and well-being of our students, employees and visitors. This is a community effort, with everyone doing their part to flatten the curve of the novel coronavirus and its illness, COVID-19. PVCC is following guidance from the CDC and from local and state health officials, implementing a number of measures so that we all can do our part to help keep each other safe.
- Students, employees, and visitors are expected to wear a face covering in all buildings and classrooms at all times and outside when physical distancing cannot be maintained. #MaskUpAZ
A face covering will be required while on campus. If you have forgotten yours, we can provide you with one.
- Students, employees, and visitors should maintain at least a 6-foot distance from others. Classrooms and other spaces have been set up to allow for physical distancing so furniture arrangements should not be changed at any time.
- PVCC has added signage around campus regarding traffic flow through building entrances/exits, stairways, elevator usage, and similar common use areas. Please follow these directions.
- Our facilities staff have increased
cleaning and sanitation schedules in addition to several other changes designed to help stop the spread.
The Puma Den Cafe, including catering operations, will be closed during the Fall semester. Vending machines will be filled at the following locations only: inside KSC Building, inside Q Building, outside of G Building (SW side), Black Mountain Orion Building
Water fountains will be out of order to protect against the spread of the virus so be prepared by carrying your own water. Bottled water will be available from vending machines.
Report to your supervisor or instructor as soon as possible if you’ve become sick or have been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19.
If you cannot reach them, please email the response team at:
We are confident in our cleaning procedures but letting us know if you’ve been on campus while sick will allow us to apply extra steps to those spaces which have been exposed.
