Employee COVID-19 Protocols

During the current pandemic state of emergency, the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) developed and established safety plans designed to maintain safe working and learning environments in its locations throughout the state.  These plans include protocols and procedures that are aligned with federal Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines as well as state Executive Orders and health department procedures.  While a state of emergency exists, KCTCS exercises its authority to implement additional precautions for student, employee, and community safety.  


Faculty, staff, and administration must work together during these extraordinary times as required by KCTCS Administrative Procedure 2.0.2-P Employee Responsibilities and Corrective Action
