CoVid-19 Response

HCC's CoVid-19 Response

This is HCC, we are HCCians!


The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new strain of coronavirus. This new virus and disease were unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019.

On 30 January 2020, the Philippine Department of Health reported the first case of COVID-19 in the country with a 38-year-old female Chinese national. On 7 March, the first local transmission of COVID-19 was confirmed. WHO is working closely with the Department of Health in responding to the COVID-19 outbreak.

In light of the growing concerns about COVID-19 in the country, we are implementing preventive measures in our campus. Every student, faculty and staff's safety and well-being are our priority.

On March 14, 2020 the local government unit of Santa Rosa, Nueva Ecija issued an advisory suspending the classes in all levels public and private school in the entire municipality, few hours after its announcement the Governor of Nueva Ecija published an advisory suspending all classes in all levels in the province both private and public schools until further notice, during these times were no students are at our campuses, the management decided to do the following preventive measures to counter the COVID-19 pandemic spread:


At HCC, the cleanliness and safety of the environment will always be a priority. To further reinforce this to combat the COVID-19 virus, we will be enforcing the following measures and provisions:

◾️ Everyone entering the campus will be thermal scanned with a non-contact infrared thermometer, we also ask our guests and visitors to properly wear face mask and face shield. Anyone with a temperature of 38.3 degrees Celsius and above will be sent home.
◾️ Anyone with cough, cold, and sorethroat are discouraged to enter and are strongly advised to immediately visit the local/rural health unit. Employees with flu-like sympthoms are advised to stay home as well as to coordinate with their local/rural health units..
◾️ Handwash soap will be made available in all comfort rooms.
◾️ Alcohol-based sanitizers will be made available in the Admissions Area, especially at the Admissions Table and the Cashiers.
◾️ There will be regular disinfection of campus premises. Surfaces that are always in contact with people (like doorknobs, elevator buttons, faucet handles, tabletops, and computer keyboards) will be disinfected as often as necessary.
◾ HCC also adjusted its mode of learning from traditional to the "new normal" / blended learning, thru the use of technology, we are able to instill knowledge to our learners whenever, wherever. Learn more about HCC FLAME click here.

For the safety of the students and the community, all in- and off-campus events and activities that will gather students in crowded or enclosed areas and/or will include travel are now cancelled.


The Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATFEID) decided to extend the current enhanced community quarantine beyond 30 April until May 15, taking into consideration the potential public health consequences and the socio economic impact on the overall country, as well as vulnerable groups whose livelihoods have been negatively affected by the ongoing restrictions.
