NTC Resumes Limited Essential Programs
As previously mentioned, we have been working diligently to bring programs back on campus as allowed by the State of Wisconsin. We recognize that NTC plays a critical role in supporting the industries that are on the front lines of this pandemic. In accordance with the “Safer at Home” order, we will be resuming labs/hands-on activities in select program areas in the School of Health Sciences and School of Public Safety beginning Monday, April 27th. Students who are impacted have been contacted directly by their faculty or dean. Please continue to monitor Canvas and your student email for important information related to your course(s) and program(s).
Please know that we have paid special attention to safety protocols and strict screening measures will be followed. Faculty and students will be directed to designated entrances where they will be screened. Labs will be restricted to groups of ten or less in accordance with the “Safer at Home” order and everyone on campus will be required to wear a disposable mask, cloth mask or face shield. Please be assured that all lab and classroom spaces will have processes for routine disinfection and strict sanitation measures to ensure the safety of all students and staff. Students will receive additional information on the essential procedures that will be in place beginning Monday for affected programs.
In addition, we have submitted a request to both the state and Marathon County asking for permission to expand additional lab programs in essential and critical areas in the School of Agricultural Sciences, Utilities, and Transportation and the School of Engineering & Advanced Manufacturing.
It is still our plan to reopen to the public on Monday, June 1st though that may be subject to change based on local, state and federal guidelines. We will continue to move forward as best we can with the safety, health and wellbeing of our students, staff and campus community as our top priority.
All the best,
