Coronavirus (COVID-19) Notifications
Clackamas Community College is closely monitoring the worldwide situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and continues to follow the guidance of the Oregon Health Authority, Clackamas County Public Health Department and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
A novel coronavirus is a new coronavirus that has not been previously identified. The virus causing coronavirus disease 2019, otherwise known as COVID-19, is not the same as coronaviruses that commonly circulate among humans and cause mild illness, like the common cold.
The college is participating in statewide measures to slow the spread of COVID-19 in Oregon. Clackamas Community College has established a Rapid Response Team to assess and communicate the impacts of the coronavirus on the college community. We will continue
to update this page as we have new information to share.
April 3, 2020: Message to CCC students
Firstly, I want to commend you for prioritizing your education during this stressful time as we continue to attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19. Secondly, I want to thank you for your flexibility and adaptability as we enter spring term. We have all been asked to change how we interact with each other and how we navigate this world.
With a COVID-19 state mandate to move classes online through April 28, Clackamas Community College students have shown great resiliency. To create some stability for our students, as well as our staff and faculty, during these unprecedented times, we have decided to extend all online courses through the end of spring term.
This means that if you have a class starting online next week, it will remain online through all of spring term. The few health sciences classes that have in-person components will continue to offer those components in-person.
The good news is that our instructors have been planning for this scenario. They are well prepared to help you succeed in your classes. Our student services teams are also ready to assist you through the term with remote advising and tutoring.

Dr. Tim Cook,
President, Clackamas Community College
