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.

Face coverings are required when inside any Campbell University facility, effective August 2nd, until further notice. This requirement applies to all students, faculty, staff and visitors regardless of vaccination status.

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.
