Previous COVID-19 Updates

HCC is now fully open, with staff available to serve students on all of our campuses. We offer comprehensive support services both in person and online for those wanting flexibility.

Based on the latest scientific data and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) including Tampa Bay’s recent designation of community risk as low, masks are no longer expected at HCC; however you may choose to mask at any time while inside College facilities.

Below is a record of previous updates to the HCC community. For the most current update, please visit coronavirus updates. For how the coronavirus outbreak has impacted students, please see COVID-19 Student FAQs.
