Campus Reopening Plan


Ready for the Now, Prepared for the Future

UPDATED: March 2, 2021

On Feb. 23, President Rowley released the following statement:

“Thanks to the decrease in statewide Covid-19 cases, the number of counties moving to yellow and green, and the arrival of a vaccine, we can look forward with more optimism to returning to a fuller version of campus life. However, we are not there yet. We must remain vigilant to protect our colleagues and our community. Please continue to follow Covid protocols: wear a face mask/covering, wash/sanitize your hands frequently, and social distance.

Travel is still not recommended. However, if you do plan to travel or are returning from a trip outside of state lines, I highly advise you discuss this with your instructor, dean or supervisor in order to make arrangements that prioritize the safety of our campus and your students and colleagues. In accordance with New Mexico Department of Health policies and CDC guidelines, anyone arriving in or returning to New Mexico is strongly advised to self-quarantine for at least 14 days and to take a Covid-19 test.” (View full statement)

The Spring 2021 Semester is taking place primarily online.

SFCC’s return to on-campus activity will occur in phases and will involve the careful evaluation of data and public health recommendations.

The college is currently in Phase 1.  

Phases are determined based on the current rate of community spread, as outlined in SFCC CARES: COVID-19 Readiness Plan.

Compiled from materials in SFCC CARES: Campus Readiness Plan.

Protocols will evolve over time and are guided by recommendations from the State of New Mexico, the New Mexico Department of Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the New Mexico Department of Higher Education.
