Campus Reopening Status
Spring/Summer Semesters 2021: Most classes for all entities remain online and many employees continue to work remotely. Some essential courses will be taught on-site with the appropriate safety precautions. All sites continue planning for a gradual return to open campuses and in-person instruction.
August 2021: All campuses/sites will have completed their Reopening Plans and the majority of staff will be scheduled to work on site at least two days per week.
Fall Semester 2021: We expect more classes to be taught face-to-face, though many courses will still be remote. The priorities for on-campus classes will continue to be those that are difficult to teach online, with special attention given to high-demand gateway courses in all disciplines that support students making academic progress. The number and mix of classes for fall will depend on student need, space availability, instructor availability, and Orange County health guidelines.
Health and Safety Protocols Remain in Place
As part of NOCCCD's efforts to keep employees and students safe, the District continues to require compliance with all Health and Safety Protocols for being on-site. This includes appropriate physical distancing as defined by the CDC, and facial coverings that cover your nose and mouth. For updated information on health and safety protocols, please visit the COVID-19 pages for your campus.
Safe Reopening Guidelines
The District continues to take a cautious approach to safely transiting back to open campuses in phases. Our plans to return to campus and other sites follow local and state health recommendations and well as the NOCCCD COVID-19 Guidelines.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to fluctuate, requiring constant monitoring and flexibility. All of us are expected to take personal responsibility for our own health and to respect those around us. Thank you for your continued resiliency and resourcefulness during these times.
