TCAT— With some restrictions, TCAT Elizabethton will begin regular classroom instruction for the summer trimester on May 4, College President Dean Blevins announced today.
Due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, online instruction began at TCAT on March 23. Classroom instruction in person was prohibited. On April 30, Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee allowed some restrictions, including classroom utilization, to expire.

• are you experiencing a cough, shortness of breath, or sore throat?
• have you had a fever in the last 48 hours?
• have you had a new loss of taste or smell?
• have you had vomiting or diarrhea in the last 24 hours?
 Implement and enforce social distancing guidelines (at least 6 feet apart). Workstations will be evaluated and spaced 6 feet apart in the classroom. Chairs in the TCAT auditorium will be spaced 6 feet apart. Classroom equipment and materials will be sanitized regularly.
