 o Social Distancing: face-to-face classes will have fewer students
 o Personal Hygiene: everyone is asked to follow the CDC’s recommendations for personal hygiene
 o Classroom/Common Area Cleaning: PCC’s Maintenance Team is focusing on stringent building cleaning. You may be asked to help clean your space (computer lab space, etc.) prior to leaving the area.

Success:

 o Class delivery: classes are being offered in a variety of ways to ensure you are able to connect with your instructor(s). Visit www.piedmontcc.edu/schedule for more information.
