Southern Appoints New COVID Coordinator



Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College is expanding its COVID-19 Task Force by adding a new project coordinator.


Joshua May will now serve as project coordinator for Southern’s COVID-19 response.


“I am glad to be joining the team at Southern,” May said. “COVID has been devastating for so many people in our local area. I just want to help in any way I can.”


Southern strongly recommendswearing a mask for the protection of others.


“Mask wearing is still one of the most effective ways for preventing the spread of COVID- 9,” May said. “Everyone should keep in mind, the mask you wear is for the protection of those around you.”


All positive COVID-19 cases must be reported to May. Southern requires a negative test result at least 7 days after exposure, or quarantine for 14 days from the time of contact before returning to campus.


Southern asks everyone to self-monitor their health conditions each day and encourages all employees and students to receive a vaccine or booster through their primary care physician, pharmacy, or local health department.


Southern says they are working with county health departments to provide the best protection for students, faculty, and staff to make campuses as safe as possible.
