Dear MCTC students, 

I hope you had an enjoyable holiday season with your friends and family! I want to welcome you to the spring semester and provide a few updates related to our COVID-19 protocols.  

We were all hopeful that the pandemic situation would improve enough that we could finally get rid of our masks. Unfortunately, the Omicron variant is spreading rapidly and so we all must continue wearing CDC-approved masks, distancing, and practicing safe hygiene while on campus. 

If you have not gotten a vaccine, I urge you to consider doing so. If you’re eligible for a booster, I hope you’ll get that scheduled as soon as possible.  

The state and CDC also have made some updates you need to be aware of. The Kentucky Department of Public Health has revised its isolation and quarantine protocols that are in the “Have you been exposed to or tested positive for COVID19?” document. This includes guidance for boosted and fully vaccinated individuals. If you have any questions about what to do if you’ve been exposed or contract COVID-19, please review this website. You also should report your exposure/case by emailing   

We are in the process of updating our protocols to align with state and federal guidelines and will continue to do so as changes occur. I will make you aware of any changes that we plan to implement. 

At this time, we are still planning to have in-person, online and hybrid class options. I know you enjoy being on campus and interacting with other students, faculty, and staff, and we enjoy having you here. As long as we work together and follow the protocols, I believe we can have a safe and successful semester. 

Again, welcome back and I look forward to seeing you soon!
