While masks are optional on the NTCC campus, we highly recommend wearing them while in enclosed spaces where social distancing is not possible. Masks are available in the Student Services Center if you need one.

NTCC will continue to use enhanced cleaning and sanitation procedures in classrooms and other public spaces. Disinfectant wipes are available at stations in most classrooms.

Hand sanitizer is widely available throughout campus. We encourage everyone to use it in conjunction with proper handwashing techniques.

Please reference the CDC website for more information on the best ways to prevent getting sick.

NTCC highly encourages everyone to get vaccinated for COVID-19. Many local pharmacies, hospitals and clinics offer vaccine appointments by appointment or walk-in. You can also schedule a vaccine through Texas Health and Human Services here.

COVID-19 testing is widely available in the area at no charge. Click here for a map of current Texas testing locations.


If you have tested positive for COVID-19 or have been directly exposed, please use the blue links above to report to NTCC administration. Doing so will help us provide you with support and also help protect others who may have been exposed.

 

As a Texas state-funded entity, NTCC is prohibited from requiring masks on campus per an executive order by Governor Greg Abbott.
