Updated Covid Protocols

While COVID protocols have ended, NIC is committed to keeping the community safe and healthy. If you're feeling under the weather or experiencing any symptoms of COVID, or any other communicable disease, NIC encourages you to stay home, take care of yourself and help prevent the spread of illness to others.

  • Students feeling symptoms of illness should immediately inform their instructors of their inability to attend class. Instructors will advise and help navigate the implications of missing class due to illness.
  • Employees must coordinate sick leave or work-from-home options with their supervisor and contact their health care provider with any questions.

For the CDC's most recent guidelines on when to quarantine or isolate, visit Isolation and Precautions for People with COVID-19.

For information about COVID-19 locally, visit the Panhandle Health District COVID-19 Dashboard.
