TUCSON, Ariz. — Pima Community College has made the decision Monday to temporarily close all campuses during COVID-19.

"A member of the college community may have been exposed to someone recently tested for COVID-19," according to PCC.

Pima Community College announced Tuesday that all campuses will remain closed to the public and students from today, March 17 through March 27.

The decision was made in an effort the reduce the potential spread of COVID-19.

All operations of the College are being reviewed daily with an eye toward “flattening the curve” of COVID-19 infection. This decision is independent of the College’s announcement on March 16 that a member of the college community may have been exposed to someone recently tested for COVID-19. The College is working closely with the Pima County Health Department to assess that situation.

College facilities are closed personnel, except emergency personnel and pre-approved activity.
