As Crowley’s Ridge College looks forward to the Fall 2021 semester, we are excited to welcome back all of our faculty, staff, and students for a great year on our beautiful campus. CRC takes the health and safety of our Pioneer family, campus guests, and our community seriously. From the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Crowley’s Ridge College has followed all mandates from the state of Arkansas and guidelines from health professionals, and will continue to do so.
As we come back to campus, we will continue healthy sanitation practices across all campus facilities, contact tracing protocol, Zoom classes and other services for those in quarantine, touchless hand sanitizer and soap dispensers in every building, and masks are still available in several locations.
Before coming to campus, students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to get fully vaccinated; however, vaccination is not mandatory. CRC will conduct contact tracing to track any rise in COVID percentages. We continue to explore making vaccinations available on campus during the fall semester.
CRC has partnered with St. Bernard’s Health Alliance to begin a healthy living initiatives program for all employees and students. The first event for the 2021-2022 school year will be a back to school health fair on campus with free health screenings, local vendors, and giveaways to encourage healthy lifestyles for our CRC family.
We will keep you updated with new information.
If you are experiencing symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has contracted COVID-19, testing is available at the locations listed below. You can also schedule a vaccination at these locations. Many pharmacies also have the vaccination available; we recommend you call them directly to ask if they have vaccines and to schedule an appointment.
