  • Maintain a social distance of at least 6 feet at all times. 
  • Wear a face covering. A face covering must be worn at all times while on campus, especially in instances where social distancing cannot be maintained.
  • Try to avoid large gatherings of more than 10 people, especially when indoors. 
  • Wash hands frequently with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds and avoid touching your face. Hand washing is especially important after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

If you have not been in contact with them for 2 weeks before the diagnosis, try to avoid contact while they are symptomatic. If this is unreasonable, ensure you maintain social distancing from the person who is sick, and when around him/her, all parties should wear a face covering. Limit contact to less than 10-minute intervals, and wash your hands after each encounter. If possible, try to ensure the patient is in a well-ventilated room, and open windows to allow circulation of air.

 More than 100 additional sanitizing stations have been installed throughout the campus. Some stations are located on walls, while others are on mobile stands or tables.

Students

When face-to-face attendance is not possible due to pandemic-related restrictions, course attendance should be evaluated as defined by Title IV of the Higher Education Act.  The following measures of engagement should serve as a measure of course attendance when physical presence is not feasible. 

  • physically attending a class where there is an opportunity for direct interaction between the instructor and students  (can be face-to-face or utilizing technology including Blackboard Collaborate);
  • submitting academic assignments as outlined in the course syllabus;
  • taking an exam, an interactive tutorial, or computer-assisted instruction;
  • attending a study group that is assigned by the institution;
  • participating in an online discussion about academic matters; and
  • initiating contact with a faculty member to ask a question about the academic subject studied in the course.

While not as simple as present or absent, documentation of these activities is clear evidence of engagement, participation, and by proxy, attendance in the course.

  • Upon notification of a positive case, classroom facilities frequented by the student in the previous two days will be sanitized following CDC guidelines.

If an employee appears to be ill with any of the symptoms connected with COVID-19, (fever, cough, loss of taste/smell, fatigue, shortness of breath), the supervisor should immediately talk with the staff member in private and advise them to return to their home, self-quarantine, and contact the Health Center at (910) 893-1560 regarding an appointment to be tested.
