Dr. Rick Toomey has been appointed to the Area Commission for the Technical College of the Lowcountry by S.C. Gov. Henry McMaster. He will represent Beaufort County.

Dr. Toomey earned his undergraduate degree in management science and master’s degree in hospital administration from Duke University. He also holds a Doctor of Health Administration from the Medical University of South Carolina.



Effective immediately, the College has instituted a mandatory mask policy. Masks must be worn indoors by everyone – employees, students, visitors, and vendors, whether vaccinated or unvaccinated. This policy applies to all indoor spaces on our campuses unless someone is working alone in a private office. Masks may be removed temporarily for eating or drinking. Masks are not mandatory outside but are strongly encouraged when groups gather. We will evaluate the situation at regular intervals as the semester progresses to determine a safe end date for the mandate.

The classes that are scheduled to take place face-to-face will continue in that format. Where possible, a three-foot distance should be maintained between those occupying a room.

If you are sick, please do not come to work or class. Instead, stay home and follow the COVID reporting protocol so that the COVID Response Team can provide guidance as they have for the past 15 months. The COVID Team is making adjustments as needed to college protocols based on advise from health professionals.
