COVID-19 Health and Safety Protocols
Effective Tuesday, March 1, the college will be operating under:
COVID Operational Condition Green
Face Masks are optional in most classrooms and common spaces.
Face Masks may be required in spaces where social distancing is not possible such as in science, hands-on labs or small offices.
Wearing a face mask is encouraged, especially when social distancing cannot be maintained. Individuals have the right to ask others to wear a mask in their presence.
Food and beverages are only allowed in designated areas on campus.
Students, Guests, Visitors and Employees are encouraged to assess their COVID-19 related symptoms daily. If you are experiencing symptoms, we encourage you to test for COVID-19.
You must contact Human Resources if you are experiencing COVID-19 Related Symptoms or have been exposed to COVID-19.
Stay home if you feel ill, are exhibiting symptoms or if you have been exposed to COVID-19.
Reporting COVID Exposure
Failure to comply with the required protocols, intentionally falsifying health screening information or failing to report COVID-related illness or exposure may result in disciplinary action, up to and including termination for employees or expulsion for students.
Respect, Kindness and Consideration for Others
It is our responsibility to keep our students and employees safe. It is also our responsibility as leaders in our communities to both model best practice for keeping ourselves and others safe during the ongoing pandemic and at the same time respect the right of others to manage their individual COVID risk.
While we will continue to follow the science and continue to urge everyone to get vaccinated against COVID-19, we cannot belittle or demonize those who for various reasons choose not to get vaccinated. Conversely, those who do not believe COVID-19 requires precautions against infection need to respect the behaviors of others who get vaccinated, mask and social distance. If interactions between individuals with different views and practices in response to the pandemic are based in mutual respect, individuals should be able to request behaviors of others based upon their own efforts to manage their personal risk. We need to learn to be able to talk respectfully to each other about our differences and to find common ground on this and other critical concerns in our community. As community leaders, we need to model respect, kindness and consideration for others, including with those with whom we disagree.
