PRCC COVID-19 Campus Plan

August 12, 2022
The PRCC COVID-19 Campus Plan has been developed to enable PRCC students and employees to return to a college environment that is as normal as possible, while still taking precautions to keep our students, employees, and visitors safe and healthy. We want to ensure that everyone understands their roles and responsibilities. PRCC leadership has received input from a wide array of medical and health professionals and guidance from state authorities. In addition to the above operational levels, all local, state, and federal guidelines will be implemented as directed.

If you test positive for COVID-19, everyone, regardless of vaccination status:

  • Stay home for 5 days.
  • If you do not have symptoms or your symptoms are resolving after 5 days, you can leave your house.
  • Continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days.
  • If you have a fever, continue to stay home until your fever resolves.

 

If you were exposed to someone with COVID-19:

  • Since new CDC guidelines do not require quarantining after being exposed to someone who has COVID, you may still come to campus for your regularly scheduled activities. 
  • Having been exposed, you are asked to wear a high-quality mask for 10 days and seek testing after 5 days. If the test result is positive, then you will need to stay at home for 5 days. 
  • If you are fever-free for 24 hours without the aid of medication, you can return to normal activities as long as you are fever free. 
  • You are asked to continue wearing a mask for an additional 5 days. 

 

If you develop symptoms get a test and stay home

 

If you have symptoms of COVID-19, but do not know if you have been exposed:

  • GET TESTED TO KNOW FOR SURE.
  • Refer to the options listed above.

 

Standard Safety Protocols

  • Increased handwashing protocols are encouraged 
  • Increased cleaning of personal work areas and classroom space 
  • Self-evaluation of symptoms using the CDC Coronavirus Self-Checker 
  • Temperature kiosks available in all campus buildings should be used 
  • Required reporting of possible contacts and confirmed COVID-19 infections by completing our COVID Reporting Form 
  • Those with an immune compromised system are highly encouraged to wear masks at all times while on campus 
  • According to the CDC, quarantine if you have been in close contact (within 6 feet of someone for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) with someone who has COVID-19, unless you have been fully vaccinated. People who are fully vaccinated do NOT need to quarantine after contact with someone who had COVID-19 unless they have symptoms.

Institutional CARES Act – Higher Education Emergency Relief Grants (HEERF I, II, and III)

Institutional Funds Reporting

Combined quarterly reports for September 2020, December 2020, March 2021, and June 2021 may be found below as required for full transparency.

HEERF I: Pearl River Community College received $2,192,974.50 from the CARES Act for the institutional portion of emergency relief funding. 

Section  18004(c)  of the  CARES  Act allows  Recipient to use up to  50  percent of the funds received to cover any costs associated with significant changes to the delivery of instruction due to the coronavirus so long as such costs do not include payment to contractors for the provision of pre-enrollment recruitment activities,  including marketing and advertising;  endowments;  or capital outlays associated with facilities related to athletics,  sectarian instruction,  or religious worship  (collectively referred to as  “Recipient’s  Institutional  Costs”). Section 18004(c) also requires Recipient to use no less than fifty percent of the funds received to provide emergency financial aid grants to students for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to the coronavirus (including eligible expenses under a student’s cost of attendance such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, and child care). 

HEERF II: In December of 2020, the U.S. government passed the Coronavirus Response and Recovery Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) which provided supplemental grant awards to higher education institutions. The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF II) is authorized by the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA), Public Law 116-260, signed into law on December 27, 2020. This new law gives the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) approximately $22.7 billion to distribute to institutions of higher education in order to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus through the HEERF II. The CRRSAA requires that an institution receiving funding under section 314(a)(1) provide the “same amount” in financial aid grants to students from the new CRRSAA funds that it was required or which it would have been required to provide under its original CARES Act Student Aid Portion award. Pearl River Community College received $6,175,335 for institutional portion. The U.S. Department of Education provided guidance in making these awards in March of 2021. Students were required to fill out an application providing permission to receive HEERF II funding from the institutional portion for balances from the 2020-21 school year.

HEERF III: The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund III (HEERF III) is authorized by the American Rescue Plan (ARP), Public Law 117-2, signed into law on March 11, 2021, providing $39.6 billion in support to institutions of higher education to serve students and ensure learning continues during the COVID-19 pandemic. Pearl River Community College received $7,103,385 as the institution portion of HEERF III.

ARP funds are in addition to funds authorized by the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA), Public Law 116-260 and the Coronavirus Aid, Recovery, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, Public Law 116-136. Emergency funds available to institutions and their students under all emergency funds total $76.2 billion.

Pearl River has reviewed Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves’ latest Executive Order as it pertains to athletic events and has decided to adjust its Spring 2021 attendance policy.

“We believe we have found an essential balance between adjusting our policy and keeping the health and safety of our student athletes, coaches, staff and fans at the forefront of our decision,” Pearl River Athletics Director and Women’s Basketball Coach Scotty Fletcher said.

“Pearl River is in constant contact with state and local officials to ensure we’re doing what’s best for all involved.”

Beginning Wednesday, March 3, capacity guidelines will be lifted for outdoor venues, including Dub Herring Park, Wildcat Stadium and the Pearl River Soccer Complex.

Additionally, attendance at Marvin R. White Coliseum and Shivers Gymnasium will be increased to 50 percent.

Admission for those games will be granted on a first come, first serve basis until capacity is reached.

While capacity has been increased, Pearl River still encourages all guests to maintain social distancing and wear face coverings (over the nose and mouth). Hand sanitizing stations are also provided throughout PRCC’s facilities.

All fans and employees attending games must conduct self-screening prior to leaving home; this process includes reviewing for possible symptoms and checking your temperature. Anyone who exhibits possible COVID-19 symptoms should stay home.

Pearl River has also implemented heightened cleaning and sanitation protocols throughout its facilities.

Signage reminding fans of best practices and requirements will remain visible at PRCC’s facilities.

Updated: Thursday, January 21, 2021

PRCC follows the recommendations updated by the CDC. The Covid 19 protocols have been updated to reflect the new CDC recommendations.

Exposure and Quarantine

Exposure to the virus is defined as being in the proximity of an individual who has tested positive to COVID-19. The proximity would have been six feet or closer for fifteen minutes or more while not wearing a mask.

Any individual having been exposed to COVID-19 is to stay home and self-quarantine.

If at any point during the quarantine, the individual experiences symptoms of COVID-19, then he or she is responsible for seeking a facility that administers the test for the virus. If the test is positive, the individual can return to campus ten days after the report of a positive test and at least a 24-hour fever-free period without the assistance of fever-reducing medications.

After ten days of quarantine, if the individual experienced no symptoms of the virus, he or she may return to the college.

If the individual has had no symptoms for seven days and has had a negative PCR test administered on day five or later, he or she must provide documentation to coronavirus@prcc.edu and may discontinue quarantine if approved. An email will be provided to use as documentation to return.

Allied Health and Nursing programs may have different guidelines for clinical affiliates. Please see the appropriate program director for that information.

Updated: Thursday, December 10, 2020

Pearl River Community College plans to safely welcome back students to its Hattiesburg, Poplarville and Waveland Locations for the first day of the spring semester. To ensure the safety of students, faculty and staff, PRCC will continue to implement a number of safety precautions and protocols in compliance with the local and state regulations.

CAMPUS OPERATIONS

New Pearl River students will be provided with a PRCC face mask. They can be picked up at the PRCC Wildcat Den Bookstore. Individuals will be required to wear a face mask in all buildings and confined spaces if accompanied by anyone. Students and employees are encouraged to be aware of their environment and be considerate of others while moving throughout buildings and the campuses. To encourage individuals to remember the necessity of social distancing, stickers have been placed on floors in high-traffic areas such as: outside elevators, outside of offices where lines might form and other areas where individuals typically gather in groups. There will be no crowding in small areas. Frequently touched surfaces throughout campuses will be regularly cleaned and disinfected.

Temperature kiosks and sanitization stations are available at the entrances of high-traffic areas, as well as specific program entrances. Individuals are encouraged to use these kiosks daily and self-monitor their own health. Individuals with a temperature exceeding 100.4 degrees or above should leave campus immediately and seek medical attention.

CLASSROOM EXPECTATIONS

Pearl River is continuing to adapt to the obstacles that have been encountered in a COVID world. Academic, career and technical, and allied health classes will continue to allow for social distancing by utilizing a mix of in-class, hybrid, Hyflex, and online instruction. Sustaining the Hyflex teaching method through the spring, along with new video conferencing equipment, teachers will again be able to provide flexibility for students while maintaining social distancing standards. Students taking on campus courses will attend in person at least once a week and will otherwise take advantage of live Webex attendance during the time each of their classes meet.

Students will need to regularly check their PRCC student email prior to the first day of classes for specific instructions on how to approach the first week of coursework. Instructors will work with students during that first week to assign online, hybrid and in-class schedules specific to each group’s needs. Instructors and students will wear face coverings and maintain social distancing standards at all times in the classroom.

RESIDENCE HALLS

Students residing in dormitories for the spring semester will move in over the course of four days prior to the beginning of classes. Those students will be emailed and assigned a specific move-in time window to limit interactions. Students are allowed one person to help them move items into their dorms.

Prior to students moving in, all facilities will have been cleaned and disinfected. Students will wear face masks in buildings and confined spaces if they are with at least one other person. Dorm lobbies will be closed to groups.

FOOD SERVICES

Dining facilities will continue to have PRCC cafeteria staff serve food where applicable instead of self-service and buffet style dining. Tables, chairs and other frequently touched surfaces will be cleaned and disinfected frequently between uses. Seating capacity in dining areas have been adjusted to allow at least 6 feet of space between tables. To enhance social distancing, a limit has been placed on the number of customers allowed in the dining hall at any given time. Once the capacity is reached, the customers will be able to accept a carry out. Any customers who do not wish to dine in will have access to to-go boxes.

WILDCAT DEN BOOKSTORE

Following recommendations by the CDC, the maximum customer capacity will be 30 patrons in the Poplarville bookstore and 15 in the Forrest County Center bookstore. Commonly touched surfaces will be cleaned regularly. Dressing rooms will be closed and customers will not be permitted to try on clothing, hats or uniforms. The Wildcat Den is also offering alternative shopping options including curbside pick-up, shop by phone, online shopping, and social media shopping. Curbside pick-up can be arranged by calling 601-403-1360. Online ordering is available at bookstore.prcc.edu.


The full PRCC Protocols Handbook for Covid-19 can be found under the Guidelines tab above. Due to the fluidity of Covid-19, all information is subject to change following guidance from the CDC, state officials and health officials. QR codes are placed around campus. Students, employees and visitors can scan the QR code for the most up to date information.

“We continue to be dedicated to providing a safe, effective learning environment for our students.”

CLASSROOM EXPECTATIONS 

Pearl River realizes with a variety of class offerings including academic, career and technical, and allied health, the college will have to address the instruction of different classes in unique ways. Classes will allow for social distancing by utilizing a mix of in-class, hybrid, “Hyflex” and online instruction. 

“The administration has made efforts to prepare the college for the return of instructors and students this fall,” PRCC Senior Vice President of Instruction/Provost Dr. Martha Smith said. “Currently, Pearl River is in the process of purchasing technology to incorporate the Hyflex pedagogy. 

“This instructional method will afford flexibility in an ever-changing environment.”

Students will need to regularly check their PRCC student email prior to the first day of classes for specific instructions on how to approach the first week of coursework. Instructors will work with students during that first week to assign online, hybrid and in-class schedules specific to each group’s needs. Instructors and students will wear face coverings and maintain social distancing standards at all times in the classroom.

Updated: Tuesday, July 7, 2020

POPLARVILLE, Miss. — Pearl River Community College is planning to resume on-campus classes at its Poplarville, Hattiesburg and Waveland locations this fall with the semester set to begin Aug. 17.

“Everyday we realize we are a step closer to welcoming our students back and that’s exciting,” Pearl River President Dr. Adam Breerwood said. “Our offices have remained open and people have been working from home to continue to be accessible to our students.”

PRCC is continuously monitoring the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and considering all guidance from public health officials as it moves forward with policies for the fall. The health and security of all members of the Wildcat Family remains Pearl River’s top priority.

“Meetings are taking place daily to assist in our reopening and we are taking all measures necessary to ensure a safe return,” Breerwood said. “Our students are the reason that we come to work everyday and when we don’t get a chance to see their faces and hear that buzz of an active campus daily, we realize we don’t ever need to take things for granted.”

PRCC’s administration is working on outlining protocols that will be released closer to the start of the fall semester. As data changes daily, Pearl River is analyzing all new information to be as prepared as possible.

ONLINE OPPORTUNITIES

If PRCC students find themselves unsure about returning to campus for coursework this fall, they will be reassured by a wide range of online class offerings at their disposal. Opportunities for seamless online semesters are a part of Pearl River’s commitment to meeting students where they are.

Students can earn their degrees by enrolling in online coursework and connecting through their tablet, mobile device or computer. Academic, career and technical online classes provide a clear path towards graduation.

Students have access to a quality education that is convenient through 15-week, 8-week and 4-week online courses.

“We always talk about remaining accessible to our students and I think that this pandemic has proven to all of us how important that is now more than ever,” Breerwood said. “Education must go on despite any challenges we may face. We are stronger because of it.”

With a new fully online student orientation process underway for the summer, new Wildcats can expect a one-on-one advisement session from the comfort of their own couch.

“We are excited to be able to offer ROAR virtually this year,” Pearl River Orientation Coordinator Emily Sheckells said. “The most important part of ROAR is getting a chance to show each student that they will have the best support system here with many people who will take time to listen to them and help them. We are still able to do just that with our virtual ROAR session and maybe even more so with one-on-one advising.”

Additional details for the fall semester will be posted to this page as they become available.

Updated March 15 at 2:10 pm.

POPLARVILLE, Miss. — The NJCAA announced Monday the immediate cancelation of all spring competitions, citing recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

“In light of the progressive evolvement of the COVID-19 situation, the NJCAA has decided to end all competition for the remainder of the academic year,” stated Dr. Christopher Parker, NJCAA President & CEO. “As an association, the NJCAA exhausted all possible avenues to potentially postpone competition for both upcoming basketball championships and spring sport competition. We believe following the recommendations of the CDC is in the best interest of our member colleges and our student-athletes.”

The cancellation includes practices, regular season, postseason and national championship play.

“I am devastated for these exceptional student athletes who have worked relentlessly to prepare for this season. We are committed to continuing to build champions on and off the field,” Pearl River President Dr. Adam Breerwood said. “I have no doubt the resiliency of our coaches and players will shine in this difficult time. Our programs will be ready to compete at the highest level when we are allowed to return to the field in the future.

“Our primary responsibility is to protect our campus and surrounding communities. I understand the necessity of the NJCAA decision.”

At the time of the cancelation, Pearl River’s men’s basketball had just been named the No. 1 seed in the NJCAA Tournament; Coach Chris Oney’s Wildcats set a program record with 28 wins and were the nation’s lone undefeated team after claiming the MACJC and Region XXIII championships.

Additionally, Pearl River’s softball team was 8-12 and in the midst of its first season under new coach Christie Meeks.

Coach Michael Avalon’s Wildcat baseball team was ranked No. 3 in the country with a 12-4 record.

Pearl River’s rodeo team was also in the midst of its spring schedule under the guidance of new head coach Frank Graves Jr. and was set to host a rodeo in Poplarville at the end of the month; the rodeo has been canceled.

“This is a tough day for our student-athletes and our staffs, as I know how much effort it takes to prepare for a season. We certainly will always move forward with the best interests of our students, staff and community in mind,” Pearl River Athletics Director and Vice President of Student Services Jeff Long said. “We understand that tough decisions had to be made. It makes it no less difficult to have these conversations with our coaches and players.

“As always, we will navigate these tough times and come out on the other side stronger and ready to represent our institution to the highest standard.”

ELIGIBILITY, RECRUITING, NLIs

The NJCAA also announced other changes:

  • No spring sport student athlete who was enrolled at a member college in 2020 will be charged a year of participation.
  • On- and off-campus recruiting for all sports will be halted until April 15, at which time the suspension will be reassessed.
  • The NJCAA will explore the opportunity to expand allowable Letters of Intent for spring sports for both the 2020-21 and 2021-22 academic years under the recommendation of the NJCAA Eligibility Committee, which meets Thursday.

Updated March 15 at 8:50 am.

POPLARVILLE, Miss. — Pearl River Community College administrators continue to monitor the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) as the institution heads into its spring break; this includes staying in constant contact with the Mississippi State Department of Health and state offices in order to make the most informed decisions for the limiting of COVID-19.

Now that cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in Mississippi, and Gov. Tate Reeves has declared a state of emergency, PRCC is preparing for the next step in this process.

As other institutions across the state make the switch to online instruction, PRCC President Dr. Adam Breerwood addressed the importance of keeping the unique needs of Pearl River’s students in mind when considering action.

“These are uncharted waters,” Breerwood said. “Each day new information changes the plan. There are many factors to consider when taking into account multiple levels of academic and career technical courses. We are doing our best to keep the community, employees and students informed.”

A disinfection of the entire campus will be implemented during spring break as part of an action plan to prevent the spread of the virus.

“The PRCC Marketing and Communications Department is working around the clock to create easily accessible websites with FAQs, contacts and more for our students,” Assistant Vice President for Marketing and Communications Candace Harper said. “We want any potential transition to be as seamless as possible during this difficult time.

“We have created a website prcc.edu/coronavirus where we are posting all official press releases from the college. In addition, our staff is posting to all our official social media sites on a regular basis.”

Any announcements concerning decisions to offer online courses or event cancellations are expected to take place by the end of next week. Administration will communicate any updates with students through email and will provide updates at [prcc.edu/coronavirus]prcc.edu/coronavirus and on the institution’s social media sites.

MACJC competitions, practices suspended until March 30

POPLARVILLE, Miss. — Based on developments with the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Mississippi Association of Community Colleges has announced the suspension of all practices and competition for all sports through March 30.

The NJCAA has already announced the postponement of all championship events until April 20, including the NJCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament, which was scheduled to start Monday in Hutchinson, Kansas. According to the NJCAA, start dates for all tournaments and championships will continue to follow state and local mandates, restrictions and regulations.

Pearl River Community College is closely monitoring information regarding COVID-19, working with state entities to gather appropriate information and plan accordingly. A statement from the President will be released soon.

Due to developments regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19), all national championship events have been postponed, the NJCAA announced Thursday.

The NJCAA Tournament, which was scheduled to start Monday in Hutchinson, Kansas, will have a tentative start date of Monday, April 20.

“Due to the concerns surrounding the safety and security of our student-athletes and those involved with Division I and Division II NJCAA championships, we are postponing the tournaments and maintaining a fluid mentality to see these tournaments take place with a tentative start date,” NJCAA President & CEO Dr. Christopher Parker said. We have two main objectives in this situation – first and foremost is to protect the health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches, college personnel, and fans. Second is to make sure our student-athletes receive the national championship experience that they have worked so hard for.”

According to the NJCAA, start dates for all tournaments and championships will continue to follow state and local mandates, restrictions and regulations.

The news comes three days after Pearl River’s men’s basketball team was awarded the top seed in the NJCAA Tournament. The Wildcats claimed the top spot as the nation’s lone undefeated team at 28-0. Prior to Monday, the Wildcats won the MACJC Championship and claimed the Region XXIII Title.
