Although there are no known cases involving the coronavirus disease known as COVID-19 on the campuses of North Central Missouri College, (NCMC) is taking further preventive and proactive measures to minimize the risk of exposure and the spread of COVID-19 through the reduction in mass assembly on campus.

According to a press release form Kristi Harris, chief of staff, beginning tomorrow, Thursday, March 26, all NCMC campuses and sites will be closed until April 13.
