Spring and Summer 2021 Announcement

Updated: Jan. 13, 2021

Upon review of federal and state guidelines and the collegewide COVID-19 Task Force recommendations, HACC has developed a four-phased approach (pdf) to reopening our campuses. Our summer semester represented phase one.

For the spring and summer 2021 semesters, HACC will move to phase three:

  • The College will remain open.
  • HACC’s campuses will remain closed until Aug. 12, 2021. Therefore, all exercise facilities and food services on our campuses are also closed.
  • All internal and external campus events, such as walks/runs or car shows, are canceled through Aug. 12, 2021.
  • Classes will be taught online through remote instruction and virtual learning. Classes that are scheduled for remote will be held at their scheduled time over Zoom.
  • Student services will continue to be provided remotely.
  • Only credit and Workforce Development programs with required hands-on/experiential components, such as labs, to meet learning outcomes will be permitted to hold on-campus classes. All other labs will be conducted remotely, and students will still be accomplishing the course learning outcomes.
  • When the spring and summer 2021 schedule are posted, students will be able to see which classes are remote, which ones are online and which ones will have hands-on labs. For on-campus classes, class size may be limited, and personal protective equipment (PPE) and social distancing guidelines from the Pennsylvania Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) must be followed. Anyone approved to be on a HACC campus is required to wear a mask that completely covers their nose and mouth at all times while on campus. This includes driving up to the wellness screening stations, in the classroom and in all common areas (indoor and outdoor). If a student has a medical condition that prevents them from wearing a mask, they will not be permitted to come on campus. Instead, we will ask them to work with their instructor to see if they should postpone course completion or work on an alternate assignment.
  • Only essential personnel or employees involved in the approved programs may return to campus.
  • Employees and volunteers involved in wellness screenings have been trained regarding COVID-19 protocol and processes.
  • Those approved to go on campus (students, employees, vendors, tenants or partners) are required to complete HACC’s Wellness Screening Form within 24 hours prior to each campus visit. Once the online form has been submitted, you will receive an email confirmation. Upon arrival to campus, please proceed to the wellness station (identified for your course, if a student) and show your email confirmation (printed or electronic) to the wellness screener. The wellness screener will verify your questionnaire answers, take your temperature and provide you instructions on proceeding forward from the wellness station.
  • If you have traveled to one of these states, you must quarantine for 14 consecutive days prior to accessing a HACC campus. This is subject to change at the direction of the Cabinet or by state mandate.
  • HACC is honored to be included as a site for COVID-19 vaccination distribution. The Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) is managing the entire process. This is not a HACC event. We will be given limited notice of when these events will occur. To limit the possibility of any COVID-19 exposure for our students and employees, and out of respect for DOH, on the dates of distribution, we will close the portion of each campus where the vaccines will be distributed. If you are a student or essential worker approved to be on a HACC campus and your work or class schedules are affected by this event, you will be notified via email. Please note: The vaccine is not for public access at this point in time. It is for a specific subgroup of individuals determined by DOH. Unless invited by DOH, you are not authorized to access the vaccination distribution site.
  • To understand how the College will handle weather announcements during the COVID-19 pandemic, please visit our weather announcements webpage.

What does this mean for HACC students?  What does this mean for HACC employees?

 

The courses within the matrices below have been approved to complete the required hands-on components on campus for the spring 2021 semester.

Please note that:

  • Only the hands-on components will be taught on campus. All other aspects of the courses will continue through remote instruction.
  • Instructors will contact students in these courses with additional details at least one week prior to the start of class.
  • Nursing classes will not be scheduled on campus. Instead, students in nursing courses will be scheduled for appointments on campus to do skills demonstrations.
  • The Senator John J. Shumaker Public Safety Center (PSC) will continue to offer select public safety programs that were approved to be taught on the Harrisburg Campus and at some off-site locations for the summer and fall 2020 semesters. For more information about PSC’s program schedule, please visit hacc.edu/1stResponders.
  • If you have traveled to one of these states, you must quarantine for 14 consecutive days upon return and prior to accessing a HACC campus. This is subject to change at the direction of the Cabinet or by state mandate. Please be sure to notify your instructor of your need to quarantine due to your recent travel. Your instructor will work with you to develop a plan for completion of missed coursework.
  • If a building in which a class is located is closed, the College will:
    • Email credit students using their Hawkmail addresses
    • Email or call workforce students. 
  • This information is tentative and subject to change.

Courses with required hands-on labs approved to be on campus for the summer 2021 semester will be added below by Jan. 27, 2021.

Please note that:

  • Only the hands-on components will be taught on campus. All other aspects of the courses will continue through remote instruction.
  • Instructors will contact students in these courses with additional details at least one week prior to the start of class.
  • Nursing classes will not be scheduled on campus. Instead, students in nursing courses will be scheduled for appointments on campus to do skills demonstrations.
  • The Senator John J. Shumaker Public Safety Center (PSC) will continue to offer select public safety programs that were approved to be taught on the Harrisburg Campus and at some off-site locations for the summer and fall 2020 semesters. For more information about PSC’s program schedule, please visit hacc.edu/1stResponders.
  • If you have traveled to one of these states, you must quarantine for 14 consecutive days upon return and prior to accessing a HACC campus. This is subject to change at the direction of the Cabinet or by state mandate. Please be sure to notify your instructor of your need to quarantine due to your recent travel. Your instructor will work with you to develop a plan for completion of missed coursework.
  • If a building in which a class is located is closed, the College will:
    • Email credit students using their Hawkmail addresses
    • Email or call workforce students.
  • This information is tentative and subject to change.

If you are approved to come on campus, you must complete HACC’s online Wellness Screening form prior to each campus visit. Please:

  • Fill out HACC’s online form within 24 hours of coming to a HACC campus. 
  • Note: This form must be submitted every time you come on campus.
  • Note: You will receive a confirmation email.
  • Drive to the wellness screening station upon arrival to campus.
  • Show the confirmation email (printed or digital) to the wellness screener upon arrival to campus each day
  • Have your temperature taken by the wellness screener. If the employee, student or visitor is screened and found to have a temperature of 100.4 degrees or below, they will be issued a wristband and cleared to proceed to their designated area of the College.

Please bring your mask with you to campus. Cloth masks should be washed after training each day.

If you are sick or have had a fever over 100.4 degrees within 48 hours prior to coming to campus, please contact your instructor and DO NOT come to campus.

Wellness screening stations have been established in centralized locations on each campus and are identifiable by signage. Screenings are conducted by wellness screeners. In the event that a screener is not available, the screening is conducted by a safety and security officer.


        View the transcript of HACC cleaning and building protocols! (pdf)

 

  • Disinfecting procedures will be used, as per governor’s orders (pdf) and CDC recommendations to do our part in maintaining student, employee and building safety (where occupied). Deep clean and disinfecting protocols are used in the classrooms, offices and common areas used by on-campus programming and departments.
  • Social distancing is also required, maintaining at least six feet of distance between individuals. 
  • Screening protocols will be administered by HACC staff in the approved programs at the start of each day. If anyone shows symptoms flu or COVID-19 (fever, cough, rash, etc.), they will be asked to leave the campus.
  • Campus maps for entrances into and exits from parking lots have been developed and shared with students and employees for the buildings that are occupied.
  • Sections of buildings are open only to students and employees involved in the programs approved to have hands-on components completed on campus. Limited essential staff are also permitted. No visitors or public will be admitted.
  • All occupied classrooms and training areas have been redesigned to maintain the six-foot physical distance requirements.
  • Appropriate signage has been installed in building entryways, hallways, bathrooms and at PPE stations. Campus building systems are monitored for proper airflow.
  • Filters have been upgraded and changed to adhere to the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) COVID-19 Resource Recommendations.

 

  • Anyone approved to be on a HACC campus is required to wear a mask that completely covers their nose and mouth at all times while on campus. Neck gaiters may be worn only if the neck gaiter has two layers. If not, the gaiter must be doubled over. Please see this link for more information. Also, please note the face coverings must be worn when driving up to the wellness screening stations, in the classroom and in all common areas (indoor and outdoor).
  • Masks are required for anyone on campus and must cover the mouth and nose.
  • Gloves are required for task-specific protocols (Examples: cleaning, involvement in hands-on components of specific programs, etc.). Please ask your instructor or supervisor if gloves are needed for specific activities and see this webpage for additional information.
  • CDC guidelines (pdf) should be followed regarding proper glove removal and disposal.

If anyone has symptoms of the flu or COVID-19 (fever, cough, rash, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell, etc.) or shows signs of symptoms during the screening process, they are to:

  • Refrain from coming to campus or return home if already on campus
  • Contact their supervisor or instructor to make alternate arrangements
  • Check with their primary health care provider
  • Notify the College by emailing corona@hacc.edu. Please describe whether you’ve tested positive, have symptoms or have been in contact with someone who has tested positive. Contact is defined as within 6 feet for 15 minutes or more.
  • Self-isolate to meet PA Department of Health and CDC Requirements


If you have come into contact with anyone suspected of or confirmed or having COVID-19, you should quarantine for 14 days, and return to campus if you are symptom-free at that time.

Here is HACC’s four-phased approach (pdf) to reopening our campuses. This is tentative and subject to change.
