YVC Offers Limited In-person Instructional Activities Starting May 11th

Yakima, WA – As the governor pursues a phased approach to re-opening Washington’s economy, community colleges, like YVC, are now allowed to conduct some very limited in-person instructional activities. These activities are only possible for a small group of Workforce Education Division (WED) programs and are designed to ensure that WED students graduate on time.

YVC students affected by this change are being contacted directly by their instructors and program leaders. Some of these students have returned to campus today, following very restrictive safety and social distancing guidelines. Each of the WED programs affected has created an approved set of safety protocols, including COVID-19 specific training. YVC remains committed to offering mostly online instruction at least through the conclusion of the upcoming Fall Quarter.

It is vital, as we stressed in the early days of this public health threat, that anyone who feels they are sick, or may become sick, stays away from YVC’s campuses. We are maintaining a host of COVID-19 related resources on our webpage: yvcc.edu/coronavirus
