With the ever-fluctuating COVID infection rates and increasing vaccination levels, Northern Pennsylvania Regional College plans to strategically reopen this fall as students look forward to returning to the College’s classrooms. NPRC plans to offer credit and workforce development courses delivered at 12 of its 25 academic instructional locations throughout the nine-county footprint during the Fall 2021 term. NPRC will be returning to all 25 instructional locations as safety conditions and health guidelines permit.
Pennsylvania’s mask mandate, implemented in April 2020, was rescinded on June 28, 2021. Considering recent recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control, the Pennsylvania Department of Education, and the Pennsylvania Department of Health, safety guidelines and protocols may be modified in the future. As always, the health and safety of the entire College community will remain at the forefront of the College’s priorities as modifications become necessary and the College moves forward. Protocols will remain in place to help promote a safe transition back to in-person operations for all faculty, staff, and students.
