A message from President Gorman:

As of 5/20/2022, Salem County’s COVID-19 Community Level is classified high risk (Red) by the CDC. Therefore, effective immediately, Salem Community College has reinstated the indoor mask mandate for employees, students and guests. Social distancing should be exercised as much as possible and handwashing should be rigorous.  
The mask mandate remains in effect until further notice. All campus business and operations are to continue as usual. The CDC re-evaluates every county each Thursday. We will keep you informed.


Report COVID-19 diagnoses or positive test results to the SCC COVID Hotline: 856.351.2840.

All in-person activities are rigorously monitored to comply with CDC and New Jersey public health guidelines. Everyone entering SCC buildings must wear a mask and practice social distancing. All occupied and/or actively utilized areas are subject to enhanced cleaning protocols.


Know Your COVID-19 Community Level

COVID-19 Community Levels are a new tool to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. Levels can be low, medium, or high and are determined by looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area. Take precautions to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 based on the COVID-19 Community Level in your area.
