The College will require all to wear face coverings according to current CDC/state guidance
Walla Walla, Washington – Walla Walla Community College is moving ahead with plans to provide in-person instruction and student services this fall. Given rising COVID-19 caseloads in the region and in alignment with federal and state guidance, the College is asking all students and employees to continue to wear face coverings while on campus.
“We are doing everything we can to deliver a high-quality, in-person experience this year while at the same time protecting our community,” said WWCC President Chad Hickox. “When current health data and recommendations change, it is our plan to make face coverings optional for those who are fully vaccinated.”
Until that time, to make vaccination as convenient as possible for students, employees, and the broader communities that we serve, WWCC is partnering with the Walla Walla Department of Community Health to hold monthly on-campus, free vaccination clinics on the Walla Walla campus.
The next clinic will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on August 11 in the new Student Recreation Center. All are invited to use this link to secure an appointment. Walk-ins will also be welcome. Another clinic will be held from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on September 13 on the Walla Walla campus.
Arrangements are being made to hold a similar clinic on the Clarkston campus.
WWCC is registering students now for the fall quarter, which begins September 20. Current and prospective WWCC students are encouraged to contact WWCC Financial Aid advisors today to learn about the many ways in which students qualify for financial help. Call 509-527-4301.
