Roane State Community College has temporarily closed the Coffey-McNally Building because of a recent increase in self-reported COVID-19 cases on the Oak Ridge Branch Campus.
The closure of the Coffey-McNally Building is a precautionary measure, Roane State said in a press release. The building closure took effect Wednesday evening.
The reported cases appear to be isolated, and all those affected are observing quarantine, Roane State said. The Coffey-McNally Building will be thoroughly cleaned before its planned reopening on Monday, January 25, the college said. The Goff Building will remain open.
Classes scheduled to meet in the Coffey-McNally Building during this time will be held virtually, Roane State said. Additional instructions regarding these classes will be provided to students by instructors. Students should monitor their Roane State email for more information.
“Please remember to wear a face mask, keep at least six feet of distance from others, wash hands frequently, and stay home if you are experiencing symptoms,” Roane State said.
Students with questions are advised to contact their instructor or email [email protected].
More information will be added as it becomes available.
