Coronavirus Information - Employees
Along with the inception of a weekly COVID Data Dashboard update, a COVID FAQ flowchart and two additional workflow documents have been created regarding the process (1) when an individual is experiencing COVID symptoms/tests positive or (2) has been in close contact with an individual who tested positive or resides with an individual who tested positive. The workflow documents have also been included in the updated Return to Campus Plan and are available on the College’s COVID-19 webpage.
To provide support for ongoing contract tracing, the College recently employed two individuals to temporarily coordinate this important function. Tina Robinson is the Student Services Contact Tracer and Christopher Stanfill is the Employee/Student Services Contact Tracer. They are responsible for communicating with those who test positive for COVID-19 and/or who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms to perform contact tracing; communicating with those who have been exposed or live with someone who tested positive for COVID-19; providing identified contacts with appropriate information, resources, and support systems; maintaining ongoing communication with affected individuals; collecting and recording accurate information in a centralized database; understanding CDC guidance related to COVID-19, including quarantine and isolation; collaborating with the Jefferson County Health Department; complying with confidentiality requirements; and confirming completion of required College documentation. Both positions are funded by the CARES Act through March, 2021.
As a reminder, masks are required by everyone at all times in campus buildings, with some exceptions for pre-approved activities and programs. If you do not have a cloth face covering that fully covers your nose and mouth, there are disposable masks in the self-serve health stations located at building entrances.
The health and wellbeing of our students and employees remains a top priority, and the College recognizes the importance of an ongoing proactive response. Thanks for working together to keep our campus safe and healthy for everyone this fall.
