Update March 16, 2020
Oconee Fall Line Technical College has no higher priority than the health and safety of our community.
We are working with our regional department of public health in regards to the health crisis, and we currently are awaiting results. The situation could change, of course, and we continue to work closely with health officials. However, as we stated on March 12, 2020, all persons who have had close contact with this person were contacted on March 12, 2020. We have begun deep cleaning processes on our campuses.
- All college campuses will be closed to nonessential personnel March 13, 2020 from 1 p.m. until further notice.
- OFTC’s spring break has been rescheduled to March 16-20, 2020

Prevention is a key strategy with any virus, such as influenza or this coronavirus, so it is important to both protect yourself and take measures against spread to others.
- The Centers for Disease Control has a fact sheet that answers many basic questions about coronavirus.
- You can also explore the CDC’s Coronavirus website if you want more in-depth information.
- Georgia Department of Public Health has a Coronavirus website which provides information about the virus.
Finally, we wanted to say thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate an uncertain situation together. OFTC is first and foremost a caring college, and we are here for you.
