Know Before You Go!

Students on campus

Dyersburg State Community College (DSCC) has announced health and safety procedures at its Dyersburg, Covington and Trenton locations for the upcoming fall semester. The College is following guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19 as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention.

Know Before You Go!

In order to keep everyone safe and healthy this fall semester, the following guidelines have been put in place to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus:

  • Face masks will be required of all students, faculty, staff and visitors while on-site at all DSCC locations. Free masks will be provided at each screening entrance.

  • As students, faculty and staff arrive on-site, they will be required to fill out and submit a daily COVID-19 Health Screening Questionnaire before entry. Submitters will either receive an entrance pass or fail message via their MyDSCC email, based on the answers to the screening questions. The College recommends filling out and submitting the questionnaire before arrival to speed up the check-in process. The questionnaire needs only to be filled out once daily; however, those receiving an entrance pass will need to be prepared to show it upon entry into each building. Passes expire each day at 11 p.m. CDT.

  • Temperatures will be checked using a digital kiosk or handheld device each time a person enters a building.

  • Designated entrances and exits for each building will be marked with a green entrance and red exit sign. Maps showing entrance and exit locations can be viewed ahead of time at

  • Students, faculty and staff are required to fill out and submit the Public Health Expectations for COVID-19 Safety Form one time only before classes begin to show their commitment to keeping the DSCC community safe and healthy.

It is recommended for all students to arrive at least 15 minutes early to allow time for the check-in process. Filling out the Health Screening Questionnaire beforehand will help accelerate the process.
