Niagara County Community College is committed to transparency and immediacy when it comes to the health and well-being of the College community. This Dashboard will be refreshed every 24 hours, and – with respect for confidentiality – will report aggregate data concerning students, faculty, and staff.

If the College becomes aware that an individual is known to have been on campus tests positive for COVID-19, we will notify the Niagara County Health Department to identify and contact potentially impacted individuals.

COVID-19 Campus Safety Information

Re-Opening Plan

Guiding Principles and Governance:

In alignment and conjunction with guidance provided by New York State, SUNY and our local county sponsor, NCCC’s re-opening plan is designed to ensure compliance with these agencies of oversight. We are leveraging information provided by the CDC, and state and local health departments, to ensure best practice is implemented across our organization. Our plan is based upon current conditions provided at the time of this plan construct. This plan is subject to change due to new information, guidance and/or direction from the state.

View the Re-Opening Plan.

NCCC COVID-19 Safety Guidelines

  • Every person coming to campus must enter and exit through the Learning Commons entryway.
  • Face masks are required.
  • Every person will have their temperature screened and will have to answer health questions upon entry. For larger events, an online survey will be sent to disperse to your guests for easy entry.
  • Each person is expected to follow social distancing guidelines. Please maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from another person.
  • Room capacity is significantly reduced. Please expect maximum room size to vary from 8 people in a regular classroom to 40 people in our largest lecture hall. Capacities could change at any moment due to local and state guidelines.
  • Please park in lots 2 (if you are a guest on campus for two hours or less), 4, 5 and 6. You do not require a parking pass for these lots. New York State is utilizing Parking Lot 1 for drive-thru COVID-19 testing.

COVID-19 Screening Survey

To be compliant with New York State’s Reopening New York Higher Education Guidelines, all employees are required to be screened daily before beginning their work day.  To attempt to streamline the process as best as possible, the Office of Information Technology has created an online screening survey that can be completed prior to coming to campus.  Submitting prior to arriving on campus will help in minimizing the exposure to the campus community and aid in expediting the entry to campus.

The screening survey will be accessed through Banner Web and can be submitted from any device that has Internet connectivity.  The link to the survey will be on the first page that appears after logging in.

View Screening Survey instructions.

Efficient COVID-19 Screening for Visitors

If you are not an employee or a student of NCCC, you are considered a visitor. You can expedite your check-in process at the screening stations by submitting your screening survey online at: https://ncccbanner.itec.suny.edu/PROD/zcv19survpub.P_SubmitRequest. The form must be completed the day of the event, yet prior to your check-in at both the Sanborn and NFCI campuses. Upon completing the form, a confirmation page will display a visitor ID. This ID will need to be provided to the COVID screener upon entering the building. The screener will review the submitted answers and will then grant or deny entry depending on the answers provided.

Visitors can also print off the COVID-19 screening questions in a Word document, fill it out, and give it to a screener when they arrive. The screening questions document can be found here.
