  2. Communicate regularly and clearly.
  3. Maintain continuity and integrity of services, when/where possible.

  5. Establish and maintain contacts and connections with federal/state or local officials.
  6. Restore regular College operations partially or entirely, when/where possible.


NWC Pandemic Response Team for COVID-19


The goal is to transition areas of campus between operational conditions over a period of time (i.e., semester), known as operational flexibility, which will allow us to transition to more restrictive or relaxed guidelines, as possible, based on the current conditions. The plan allows us to pivot quickly and to the best of our ability as conditions change throughout the next year.
