HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) — The Hampton campus for Thomas Nelson Community College will be closed both Thursday and Friday due to a possible threat in the area. Hampton faculty and staff will telework. In-person classes are canceled or will meet remotely, TNCC said.

The college made the announcement Wednesday, saying there was a “potential threat targeting an agency with facilities that are in proximity of the Hampton Campus.”

On Friday, they updated their alert, saying the “the threat to agencies in proximity to Thomas Nelson Community College’s Hampton campus has been quashed.”

Classes will resume Monday.

TNCC officials did not specify which agency the threat was made against.

The threat was investigated by an outside agency, which TNCC also did not identify.

Students can access services online or by contacting 757- 825-2800. The Historic Triangle Campus in Williamsburg remained open.
