NNMC Covid-19 Response
From: President Balderas
March 24, 2023
Northern New Mexico College will no longer require proof of COVID-19 vaccination for students, staff, and faculty. Everyone is encouraged to follow best practices that were established to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including:
- wash your hands frequently,
- stay up to date on COVID-19 vaccinations,
- stay home if you are not feeling well, and
- wear a mask if you have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
The thermal temperature stations will remain by the entrances to our buildings for your convenience, but it is no longer necessary to sign in and document your temperature.
We ask if you feel ill or have a fever, to please go home and call your immediate supervisor or professor to let them know. Please be respectful of individuals who want to wear a mask. If you test positive for COVID, please notify email@example.com.
Please note that Northern’s nursing programs will continue to require proof of COVID vaccinations.
Thank you for helping us continue to keep the Northern New Mexico College community healthy!President Hector Balderas
