Limited students begin resuming labs and hands-on courses

Friday May 1, 2020
Greetings NWTC Community,
We recognize the critical role NWTC plays in supporting essential services on the front lines of COVID-19 pandemic. Beginning on Monday, May 4, we will begin resuming labs and hands-on courses in programs in Health Sciences and Education and Public Safety that provide essential workers for the pandemic response. This will give students in these programs the opportunity to finish their semester and graduate.
Students who are impacted will be contacted directly by their faculty or dean/associate dean. Please continue to monitor Blackboard, the college website, and your student email for important information related to your course(s) and program(s).
Recommendations from Wisconsin Technical College System and Governor Evers’ Safer at Home order allow NWTC leaders to bring students back in essential programs back to campus. With that said, the College is taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of our students and employees. 
We have very specific instructions and expectations for this limited return to class.
Safety Guidelines for Coming on Campus for Labs/Hands-On Courses
  • All College doors are locked because the College is closed to the public. Therefore, students will be directed to designated entrances to meet their instructors.
  • Students, faculty and staff are required to wear a disposable or cloth mask while on campus.
  • Anyone feeling ill or with COVID-19 symptoms (cough, shortness of breath/trouble breathing or a fever) will not be permitted in the building. College staff will follow-up with students regarding alternate learning options.
  • Social distancing will be practiced.
  • Labs will be restricted to groups of nine or less. We will make every effort to maintain physical distancing when in the classroom/lab environment. 
  • Classrooms and labs have been and will continue to be routinely cleaned and disinfected to ensure the safety of all students and staff.
  • Students will stay in their classroom or lab area while on campus.
  • We are following all CDC, Wisconsin Department of Health Services, and Brown County Health Department practices and protective measures. 
We know many of you are anxious to get back to campus.  The College will remain closed to the public and other students until Tuesday, May 26, until the end of the emergency order, or notified otherwise.
We know the last few months have been difficult for our community. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time. Be safe and be well. We will continue to keep you updated with any new developments or plans as we move forward.
