College officials continue to collaborate with Virginia Department of Health staff, while monitoring the best available data related to the COVID-19 pandemic, especially state and local data. The College has and will continue to make decisions that place the health and wellness of our students, faculty, staff, and community as our highest priority. As current public health data provides evidence of downward trends in positivity rates, the College is prepared to resume face-to-face, on-campus instruction beginning Monday, January 24, 2022. As long as residual impacts from this weekend's forecasted weather events do not preclude alternate operating statuses, which will be communicated if necessary, Thomas Nelson becoming Virginia Peninsula Community College will resume face-to-face instruction and services on Monday, January 24, 2022. Students will receive additional information regarding their courses from their faculty. As the College returns to face-to-face instruction, it does so out of an abundance of caution, face coverings shall be required by everyone while in College buildings and/or off-campus educational sites. Social distancing is encouraged when and where possible. Socially responsible behaviors are encouraged (cover your cough or sneeze, wash hands, don’t come to work of class if you are sick, etc.).
