|The Town of Robbins Wednesday issued a State of Emergency Declaration due to COVID-19.|
“This immediate action is required to protect public health from the spread of the disease, reduce further mass gatherings, ensure public safety and render emergency relief,” said the town in a news release.
Robbins Board of Commissioners authorized the immediate action listed:
Town offices will be closed to the public effective March 18, 2020, until the state of emergency has been lifted or the Board of Commissioners takes action to reopen to the public. Assistance to customers will still be available via phone and email, where possible;
To reduce the spread of the virus water and sewer customers are asked to pay their bills by check or credit card via mail, phone, or drive thru window;
Temporarily suspend water disconnections for nonpayment of bills during the outbreak, until the state of emergency is lifted, or the Board of Commissioners takes action to end this grace period. This suspension does not reduce the amount owed to the Town, and customers are cautioned not to allow their payments to fall behind unnecessarily;
No public recreation spaces will be available for rental use by groups or individuals.
The State of Emergency will remain in effect until rescinded by the Town Board of Commissioners.
|A Moore County resident has tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19), the County’s first since the outbreak began. The Moore County Health Department was notified of a positive test March 18, 2020, by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. To protect privacy, no further information about this individual will be shared by the Health Department.|
“With increased testing, more cases are expected,” said Moore County Health Director Robert Wittmann. “We would advise all Moore County residents to continue to follow all recommended control measures to protect themselves and others from the virus”.
Moore County Health Department staff are monitoring the individual who tested positive and will follow up with anyone who is identified as a close contact. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines “close contact” as being within six feet for 10 minutes or more.
The Moore County Health Department continues to urge all residents to take measures to reduce the spread of coronavirus:
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
• Stay home if you are sick.
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
Health officials also encourage everyone to implement social distancing measures to reduce frequency of contact, like maintaining six feet of distance and avoiding large crowds. This is important for everyone and especially those at high risk of severe illness, specifically anyone over 65 years old or anyone who has an underlying health condition like heart disease, lung disease, diabetes or a weakened immune system. Further, individuals in this high-risk category should stay home to the greatest extent possible in order to avoid exposure.

|Governor mandate - schools closed for two weeks starting Monday day March 16|
|Coronavirus Update March 13, 2020|
We have made the decision that face-to-face curriculum classes will not meet on campus the week of March 16th-20th. This decision aligns with guidance from the CDC to promote social distancing – “the practice of minimizing large gatherings and encouraging distance of six feet or more for an extended period of time.” The college is continuing to take all reasonable precautions to protect our college family from exposure to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). If you are currently in an online or hybrid class, coursework through Moodle will continue uninterrupted. Please pay attention to your due dates.
When curriculum classes resume on March 23, most instruction will be online through Moodle until further notice. Exceptions may be made for clinicals and labs. To assist students who may not have reliable resources needed for online work, supervised computer labs will be open on campus. Further details will be forthcoming. Any students who are in a high-risk category (over age 65 or with an underlying health condition) should take appropriate precautions regarding coming to campus.
We will take administrative steps necessary to ensure VA students are not impacted by these actions. If you are a VA student and have questions, please contact Teresa Taylor.
In addition, we are still requiring a 14-day quarantine for anyone who has traveled to a country that the CDC has assigned a Level 2 or 3 Travel Health Notice https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/index.html or to the states most impacted by the virus https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/cases-in-us.html. Note that the countries and states that fall into these two categories are continuously being updated by the CDC. Please continue to check these webpages. This quarantine will prohibit the traveler from coming to the campus for two weeks following the date they were last exposed to the high impact area. If one of the above travel situations applies to you, contact your instructors for guidance on continuing your coursework. We will take the necessary steps to ensure that those affected are able to make up their work without penalty.
Lastly, the college has decided to prohibit any non-essential travel for faculty and staff until further notice.
The health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and local community are of great importance. We are carefully monitoring and adjusting how to best operate in this rapidly changing environment. As we continue to get recommendations and information from the CDC and state and local agencies, we will keep you informed of any changes in the college’s status.

Make up dates for these activities will be announced as they are determined. Students will not be permitted on the STARS campus during this closure. I will be in contact with you if we need to alter these dates—for instance, if we can come back to school sooner than April 14th, or if we need to stay out longer.
Our teachers will be in contact with you regarding how they will communicate with you during this closure. I strongly encourage you to email your child’s teacher so they have a good email address for you—this way they can let you know the different platforms they will use to communicate and work with your child during this closure. Please be patient with us--we will evolve and improve with communication and our work delivery during this process. Our entire focus during this process is your health and well-being. Beyond everyone’s health we want to keep your child working through their various curriculums and maintain as much normalcy as possible for them during these extraordinary times.
