COVID-19 response and resources
Wake Tech continues to navigate the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic with thoughtful and careful guidance for the college community. Our "Learn Well" objectives keep us focused on allowing students to pursue their academic goals while keeping health and safety top of mind. As cases of COVID-19 decline and health officials adjust pandemic protocols, Wake Tech has done the same. The following measures are currently in place:
- Masks are optional indoors and outdoors on college campuses.
- Faculty may require masks as a form of personal protective equipment in science and technical labs where close contact may be unavoidable.
- Smaller class sizes allow for voluntary physical distancing.
- The college's three full-time contact tracers continue to monitor reports of positive cases and exposure to coronavirus.
- Libraries, open computer labs and other indoor study areas are available.
- In-person and virtual admissions and advising appointments continue.
- Vending machines, coffee shops and food services, including food trucks on some campuses, are available.
- Work-related travel for employees is permitted; however, anyone not comfortable with traveling should not do so.
Wake Tech strongly recommends that all students and employees be fully vaccinated and boosted. In addition to vaccines, the college encourages faculty, staff and students to be mindful of other health and safety recommendations, including frequent hand washing. Students, employees and visitors may pick up disposable masks at campus welcome desks, cashier's offices and libraries if they would like one. Students who feel sick should not come to campus but should seek medical care and contact their instructor.
Employees or students who test positive for coronavirus or have come into contact with COVID-19, either directly or indirectly, should email [email protected] and follow the college's pandemic protocols.
Wake Tech has been responsibly monitoring COVID-19 developments on a daily basis and has been following the guidance of health officials since the onset of the pandemic. We will continue to adjust our health and safety protocols as events warrant.
