Face Mask and Physical (Social) Distancing Guidelines

To protect people from COVID-19, reduce the risk of being infected with the omicron variant or the possibility of new variants forming and possibly spreading it to others, NOC encourages the use of masks indoors in public.

We recommend that you wear a mask regardless of the level of transmission if you have a weakened immune system or if, because of your age or an underlying medical condition, you are at increased risk for severe disease, or if a member of your household has a weakened immune system, is at increased risk for severe disease, or is unvaccinated.

Syllabus Policy

To maintain a safe learning environment, delivery format (e.g. traditional, online live, online, etc.) may be changed as needed to align with federal, state, or organizational criteria, and the face mask recommendations may be reinstated if needed to maintain campus safety.  If the course delivery has to be changed at any time during the semester, refer to the Blackboard page of this class for instructions.
