(Elizabethtown, Ky) Elizabethtown Community and Technical College (ECTC) is committed to maintaining the health and safety of our students.
The college leadership team is working with state and local government and health officials, along with public school and university partners, to carefully monitor coronavirus (COVID-19) cases in our region.
“ECTC faculty and staff understand the current state of emergency and have been preparing for several weeks to continue instruction while meeting community health needs,” President, Dr. Juston Pate said. “This preparation includes determining how classes can be delivered if traditional on-site education is no longer an option.”
Unlike the universities, ECTC has no students living on campus. Additionally, the technical programs the college offers require access to equipment for hands-on training and skill assessment. ECTC also offers dual credit classes at local public schools and employment training at local businesses.
At this time, the local health department perceives minimal risk for our students, faculty and staff. However, if that changes or if Gov. Beshear shuts down public schools, ECTC will immediately move to online instruction and make appropriate campus closure decisions.
In the meantime, we are following CDC guidelines and will continue additional daily cleaning. These protocols include more frequent cleaning and disinfecting of classrooms, restrooms, student centers and other places where students and the public gather.
