Good Afternoon Everyone,

Well, the semester has begun and so has our exposure to Covid-19. WTC will be following the updated CDC recommendations below (also available at https://www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2021/s1227-isolation-quarantine-guidance.html)  If you have been exposed, or if you have tested positive, please check below for the current recommendations. Of course, please feel free to check with Brad Keller in HR if you have additional questions.

FYI - Our Dorms open this Friday and all resident students must submit a negative Covid-19 test before moving in. In order to be valid, the negative test can not be dated earlier than 72 hours before move-in.

Reminder - Our In-Service Opening Session is Thursday, January 6, 2022, at 9:00 am in the Fine Arts Theater. See you there!
