About the health centers
JCC’s health centers promote health and wellness through nurse directed care and wellness counseling. The registered professional nurses in each health center are trained to assess and treat many minor health conditions and illnesses and evaluate the need for emergency care for students, faculty, and staff. Prescriptions for health conditions are NOT available at the health centers. Patients who may require more extensive treatment and medical care will be referred to the appropriate facility such as emergency room, urgent care, or their own health care provider.
If you are taking six or more credit hours at JCC, you must submit to the health center:
- Immunization records for measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR)
- Meningitis response form as to your choice regarding the voluntary meningitis vaccination
If you live in the residence halls on campus, you must submit to the health center:
You will be in administrative withdrawal from JCC and charged a $25 fine if you don’t turn in your forms and records.

Wear a mask, wash your hands, & keep a safe distance
Keep yourself and others safe during the pandemic. Practice these habits to maintain your health and keep those around you safe!
- Wear a face mask at all times in public, such as stores, restaurants, and classrooms. Masks are required in all JCC buildings.
- Wash your hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer frequently. Avoid touching your face.
- Practice social distancing. Keep about 6 (two arms’ length) feet between yourself and others at all times. A cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.
- Avoid contact with people who are sick.
Other ways to protect yourself & others
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily, including tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks. If surfaces are dirty, clean them. Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection. Then, use a household disinfectant.
- Commercial wipes can be used to disinfect surfaces. Read the label for proper use, storage, and to determine if wipes are effective against the COVID-19 virus.
- Diluted household bleach solutions can be used if appropriate for the surface being cleaned. Check the label to see if your bleach is intended for disinfection and is not past its expiration date. Some bleaches, such as those designed for safe use on colored clothing or for whitening, may not be suitable for disinfection.
- Unexpired household bleach is effective against coronaviruses when properly diluted. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for application and proper ventilation. Never mix household bleach with ammonia or any other cleanser. Leave solution on the surface for at least 1 minute.
