COVID-19 Updates

Stay Safe. Stay Calm. Sail On, Proas.
COVID Update

Due to the continual increase of COVID-19 cases in our community, supervisors are still authorized to allow employees to telework and/or instructors whose courses are face-to-face or have face-to-face components to continue virtual/online learning through December 17.

Note that employees must secure approval from their respective supervisors in order to telework or continue with virtual/online learning, and students must await official notification from their instructors about any continuation of virtual/online learning.

The college has recently received notification that an NMC student has tested positive for the Covid-19 virus. Contact tracing activities are being conducted to determine the extent of the outbreak. Other safety protocols are being carried out by our Facilities team and other departments at the College.

COVID Update

The safety of the residents of the CNMI remains the top priority of the Governor’s COVID-19 Task Force and the Commonwealth Healthcare Corporation (CHCC). With approximately 90% of the CNMI’s adult population receiving at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and approximately 84% of its residents fully vaccinated, combined with the rollout of the pediatric COVID-19 vaccines, the Governor’s COVID-19 Task Force and the CHCC will be implementing a comprehensive testing and surveillance strategy that will strengthen the travel process to rapidly identify and contact CNMI residents at risk of exposure to COVID-19.

COVID Update

The Commonwealth Healthcare Corporation, in partnership with the CNMI Public School System, will offer school-based COVID-19 vaccinations at PSS schools. The effort follows the approval of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5 to 11 years old by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Nov. 2, 2021.
