Returning to Campus for Spring 2021
PC students, professors and staff members did an incredible job managing a challenging fall term.
As in the fall, it will take a collective effort with each of us living and learning together to have a successful spring.
Everyone in the PC community learned a great deal last year. As we build on it, we’ll look back on 2021 and recognize what we achieved as a living and learning community.
Thanks to you, we’ll continue to deliver on PC’s mission in meaningful ways.
Please see below for important information about returning to campus for Spring 2021.
- For your convenience, PC is partnering with Self-Regional Healthcare to offer Free COVID-19 Testing every Tuesday from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. in front of Bailey Stadium.
This Spring we are asking you to step up again by:
- Wearing your mask in public and PC community spaces, especially when within 6 feet of others, whether during formally scheduled or informal events, meetings, programs, or other gatherings. You may remove your mask if you are 1) outside on campus, 2) walking by yourself, and 3) without anyone within 6 feet of you. Otherwise, if you’re in groups outside, or inside campus buildings, please continue to wear masks as required by existing policy
- Social distancing on a regular basis when exercising, eating, waiting in lines, gathering informally with friends, or anytime you are around others.
- Continuing to use your LiveSafe app to monitor your symptoms daily
Check out all of our #ProtectPC pages for other ways you can help keep the PC community healthy as a caring member of our college.
Call the COVID Helpline at 864-872-0999 if you have COVID symptoms or receive a positive COVID test result.
Take Steps to Prevent Illness
While there is a vaccine to prevent COVID-19, the process of administering the vaccine is lengthy. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus.
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’s page on Steps to Prevent Illness for more information.
