NWTC continues to align our pandemic response with guidance from the local city and county health departments as well as local, state and federal agencies including, but not limited to, the Wisconsin Division of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). 

Thank you for your patience as we continue to respond to the evolving COVID-19 situation. We will continue to provide updates as the situation and campus decisions change.
