  • It's A Wrap! - 12/18/2020

    Dear Carroll Students,

    Today, we wrap up our very busy Fall semester and come one day closer to the culmination of an unprecedented year. You have been receptive to on-going change and persistent in pursuing your goals for higher education. You have been an integral part in our collective efforts to ensure the safety and well-being of our College community. I offer you my deep appreciation, and I thank you sincerely!    

    As we break, I remind you of a few important safety tips from Governor Hogan and the Carroll County Commissioners. Stay Home for the Holidays. Do what is best for you and your loved ones. This holiday season could present our most challenging time – parties and groups are the highest transmission times:

    • You are safer at home for the holidays
    • It will help our hospitals and will save lives
    • Dept. of Health issuing an advisory limiting groups to 10 and avoid parties involving people outside the home
    • Governor issuing an Emergency Order that limits travel to essential purposes only
    • Testing before and after travel is required, or quarantine for 10 days (College policy is still 14 days. We will revisit for Spring.)

    People are at highest risk of catching the virus if they are in close contact of a person with COVID-19. Based on current research, you are a close contact if:

    • You were within 6 feet of someone who has COVID-19 for a total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period while the person was infectious (2 days before illness onset or testing)
    • You provided care at home to someone who is sick with COVID-19
    • You had direct physical contact with the person (hugged or kissed them)
    • You shared eating or drinking utensils
    • They sneezed, coughed, or somehow got respiratory droplets on you

    Please enjoy your time with family and take time to rest and recharge. On behalf of our Board of Trustees, Executive leadership, faculty and staff, we look forward to seeing you in the new year!

    My best to everyone,

    Jim Ball

  • Thanksgiving Break Message To Students - 11/20/2020

    Dear Lynx students, 

    As we approach Thanksgiving Break I send a very important message. Please read in full: 

    1. In concert with Governor Hogan’s travel notice, we encourage all students to avoid all travel outside of Maryland (excluding those living in PA).
    2. Those who travel to a state with a Positivity Rate of 10% or above or a Case Rate per 100,000 of 20 or higher consider self-quarantining for 14 days upon returning to Maryland. View State Positivity Rates and State Case Rates.   
    3. This quarantine should also applies if you are exposed to individuals from a state in the “red zone.”
    4. The quarantine applies even if you have tested negative during the 14 days of quarantine. According to the Health Department, the average incubation period is 4 to 5 days, and it’s possible for a person not to exhibit symptoms or become infectious for up to 14 days.
    5. Exposure guidelines are provided on our website. Visit What To Do If You Have Symptoms or Have Been Exposed
    6. If you have any questions about attending your face-to-face or hybrid classes on campus, please consult with your instructors.
    7. For behavioral health resources please visit the Carroll County Health Department’s website for available Behavior Health Services.
    8. For additional information and safety tips visit the Maryland Department of Health Expanded Travel Advisory for all out-of-state travel and the CDC Celebrate Thanksgiving Safety Guidelines.

    Please, let’s all do our part. I wish you a safe and healthy Thanksgiving!
