COVID-19 Pandemic Information

The Wellness Center is monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak very closely. We recognize that this time of uncertainty may be stressful for people. The health, safety, and well-being of our college community is our top priority. Please be advised that NCCC is following all CDC, DOH, and SUNY guidelines.

If an NCCC student tests positive for COVID-19, they should contact the Supervisor of College Nursing Services/Wellness Center, Cheri Yager, at 716-614-6275. All information will remain strictly confidential. The Department of Health of the County the student lives in will be notified as per the regulations associated with the pandemic, however, no confidential information will be disclosed at any time.

NCCC must follow the guidelines and mandates put forth by SUNY and the NYS Department of Health.  Students must receive COVID shots and a booster when they become eligible per these mandates.  As a reminder, eligibility is as follows:

  • 2 months after receiving Janssen J&J
  • 5 months after receiving Pfizer
  • 5 months after receiving Moderna

Students must receive their boosters within 2 weeks of becoming eligible and submit proof to the Wellness Center.  Students may bring in their immunization cards or take a picture of both the front and back of the card and email it to: wellnesscenter@niagaracc.suny.edu

Students who are not compliant with the COVID shot/booster mandate will only be allowed to register for classes online and they will not be allowed on campus for any reason.  Students who are compliant with the mandate may register for any modality of classes they wish.

As you know, information is fluid with the pandemic. Please monitor your TWolves email closely for changes in the mandates and guidelines.
