COVID-19

On February 11, 2020 the World Health Organization announced an official name for the disease that is causing the 2019 novel coronavirus outbreak, first identified in Wuhan China. The new name of this disease is coronavirus disease 2019, abbreviated as COVID-19. In COVID-19, ‘CO’ stands for ‘corona,’ ‘VI’ for ‘virus,’ and ‘D’ for disease. Formerly, this disease was referred to as “2019 novel coronavirus” or “2019-nCoV”.

There are many types of human coronaviruses including some that commonly cause mild upper-respiratory tract illnesses. COVID-19 is a new disease, caused by a novel (or new) coronavirus that has not previously been seen in humans.

COVID-19 is a global pandemic and all members of our community must remain vigilant in taking active steps to curb the spread of the virus. Despite RCC’s safety protocols, we cannot fully eliminate the spread of COVID on our campus or in the community.

Rogue Community College, in partnership with the Josephine and Jackson County Public Health Departments, is monitoring a variety of indicators to determine what actions may need to be taken should conditions change.
