Mask Policy 

We are now dealing with the Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus. It is 2 to 3 times more contagious than the original virus.  As such, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends universal mask wearing regardless of vaccinated status in institutions that do not have universal vaccination.  Accordingly, The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) strongly recommends we adopt this practice in an effort to protect the safety of our staff and students and to promote in-person learning.

Throughout this pandemic, we have taken the guidance from both the CDC and CDPHE very seriously and have used their expertise to guide our college protocols. Therefore, effective Thursday, Aug. 26, 2021, all employees, students, and visitors at Pueblo Community College – all campuses and sites – will be required to wear a mask when indoors in gathering spaces such as classrooms, labs, libraries, study areas, theaters, etc.

Masks will not be required when walking outside or in a private office, unless the occupant of the office respectfully asks for such an accommodation.

In addition to required masking, please stay home if you are not feeling well.  We have the technology in place to support both PCC Flex for classroom instruction for our students and remote working from home for employees when need be.  Finally, while I know it is easier said than done, please remain mindful of maintaining adequate physical distancing when congregating in a group.

PCC Flex 

PCC will continue to offer PCC Flex scheduling. Attend class in person or live online – whatever works best for you!
