Plan for Fall 2022

COVID-19 is still with us, and there will still be some important guidelines all of us will be expected to follow related to COVID-19.

PC currently strongly recommends that everyone on campus be vaccinated to protect themselves and the entire community.

Please see below for important information about returning to campus for Fall 2022. Some plans may change as CDC guidelines adapt to this fluid situation.

Positive Cases

Call 864-872-0999

A student who tests positive for COVID-19 should call the PC COVID-19 Help Line.

More information can be found at the bottom of this page.

Take Steps to Prevent Illness

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends protecting yourself by cleaning your hands often and avoiding close contact with people who are sick.

You can protect others by:

  • Staying home if you’re sick
  • Covering coughs and sneezes
  • Wearing a facemask in public settings
  • Practicing social distancing (stay at least 6 feet from other people)
  • Cleaning and disinfecting

Please visit the CDC website for more information.

Procedures for Positive Cases

  • A student who tests positive for COVID-19 should call the PC COVID-19 Help Line at 864-872-0999. A Campus Life staff member will help the student make arrangements to go home. The student must be isolated at home for at least 5 days.
  • Staff will notify the student’s professors and other offices so they can reach out to the student to help them stay connected during that time.
  • Students in close contact (suitemates, teammates, and close friends generally) with the student with COVID who are unvaccinated must quarantine for 5 days as well. Students who are fully vaccinated for COVID and have no COVID symptoms will not be required to quarantine or miss out on on-campus activities.
  • Employees who test positive for COVID-19 should follow this flowchart for instructions on how to proceed.

The health and safety of each of our students, faculty, and staff are paramount.  Working together this past academic year allowed our students to remain on campus and to be successful. It will take ALL of us working together so that each of us may enjoy a fun and successful year at PC!
