Employee Update - June 22, 2020

Dear Faculty and Staff,

With the recent increase in the number of COVID-19 cases within the McLennan County area, the Leadership Team and the Emergency Operations team believe it is important to begin the requirement of face coverings on the McLennan Community College Campus on Wednesday (June 24, 2020). This new requirement is a vital part of our mitigation efforts and is consistent with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as local and state governments.  Details of the face covering requirement can be found in policy E-XXXXI on the College’s website.  Face coverings will be required to be worn by all individuals (faculty, staff, students, and visitors) as outlined in the policy.

We appreciate your cooperation with this new public safety measure.  Wearing face coverings is an additional prevention measure, and we encourage everyone to continue to practice other healthy habits. To assist employees, we will be providing cloth face coverings at a later date, and more information will be forthcoming.  Disposable masks are available in the Campus Police Department. 

For additional information about our COVID-19 response, please visit our website. Questions may be directed to or to your vice president or me.
