Update: October 11, 2021

In an effort to stem the fall surge in COVID-19 cases, Wake Technical Community College is taking the following measures to help keep our campus community safe. Consistent with our “Learn Well” focus of making safety a priority while allowing students to progress toward their academic goals, the steps below will remain in place until further notice:

  1. Masks are required in classrooms, labs, hallways and other gathering spaces for everyone, regardless of vaccination status. 
  2. Social distancing is being observed in our in-person classes. 
  3. Consistent with current State and Wake County employment requirements, all Wake Tech staff and faculty are required to submit results of weekly COVID-19 testing or voluntarily submit proof of vaccination, beginning November 1.
  4. The college has hired three full-time contact tracers and has invested in a mobile software application to facilitate these additional reporting requirements.
  5. We have centralized communication for COVID-related reporting at [email protected].
  6. All faculty office hours are being conducted online by MS Teams (unless special accommodations are required to meet specific student needs).
  7. Libraries and ILCs have converted their seating to accommodate social distancing requirements.
  8. Additional outdoor seating has been acquired for several campuses and new socially-distanced indoor study spaces have been designated.
  9. All indoor student meetings and activities must accommodate for social distancing.
  10. All indoor food services and coffee shops have been converted to “grab and go,” and the opening of Flavors Restaurant (Wake Tech’s Culinary Arts lab) is postponed until further notice.

Wake Tech is not requiring but does highly encourage vaccination for staff, faculty, and students to help us all move past the risks and restrictions of COVID-19. To that end, Wake Tech is sponsoring vaccination opportunities throughout the semester.

The college also encourages faculty, staff and students to be mindful of other health and safety recommendations, including frequent hand washing. Anyone who forgets a mask can pick up a disposable mask at campus welcome desks, cashiers offices and libraries. Students who feel sick should not come to campus, but should seek medical care and contact their instructor.

Employees or students who test positive or have come in contact with the coronavirus, either directly or indirectly, should email [email protected] and follow these important 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 outset of the pandemic. We will continue to adjust our health and safety protocols as events warrant.

Student Services

Wake Tech has established a Virtual Support Center for students, which is the best and safest way for students and prospective students to receive services such as admissions, financial aid, registration and records, advising, veterans services, career and employment resources, and wellness counseling.
