What’s New on Campus to Protect You:

  • The campus is fortunate to have modern Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) equipment installed and in excellent condition. The system provides Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) 13 filtration, an average of six air changes in a room per hour, and is controlled by a central building automation system. The HVAC systems are now always providing a minimum of 30% OA campus wide, constantly exhausting 30% of the air to the outside while bringing in an equivalent amount of fresh air into the building.
  • Hand-sanitizer dispensers are available in all buildings, common areas, and high traffic areas.
  • HCC Facilities staff clean, disinfect, and sanitize frequently touched objects and surfaces in public and common areas at regular intervals.
  • Any positive COVID-19 test results, possible exposures, or other concerns must be reported immediately to . All reports are confidential.
  • The college has purchased UV technology to help disinfect areas.

Remember to follow COVID safety practices to protect yourself and others:

  • Complete a daily health self-assessment
  • Consider wearing a face covering in high-density areas
  • Wash hands thoroughly and frequently
  • Maintain physical distancing when possible
  • Get vaccinated
