COVID Closes Belmont Campus of SCC

The Eastern Iowa Community Colleges has closed one of its campuses because of the pandemic. Starting Monday the Belmont Campus of Scott Community College in Riverdale will be closed for one week. 

The colleges blame "a small but significant number of positive Covid-19 cases among employees." And those in contact with these employees have already been notified, and the closing should give enough time for them to be tested.

Instruction and student services previously scheduled on the SCC Belmont Campus will be provided remotely. Online and LIVE Online courses currently delivered remotely will continue as scheduled.

The downtown Davenport campus of Scott Community College will remain open, as the campuses of Clinton and Muscatine community colleges.

After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
