Various screening tools will be deployed, we are currently evaluating several options, including an online pre-entry screening tool will be deployed prior to initial reentry to campus. This questionnaire will be more in-depth and will address questions related to potential exposure to COVID-19 while also assessing current health and wellness. No-touch thermometers will be used to check temperatures daily for all on-site students, faculty, staff, or visitors.
Hygiene, cleaning and disinfecting protocols provided by the CDC cleaning guidelines are maintained throughout our facilities.
On-site staff operations will remain limited to ensure social distancing and to maintain a reduced campus density. Each department has created a departmental safety and staffing plan, these plans outline new departmental procedures and on-site staffing levels. Each department will have limited face-to-face services available by appointment. As this plan is subject to change due to new information, guidance, and/or direction from the State and County, staffwill prepare for a return to remote operations on a daily basis.
There is a process available for faculty, staff, and students who may have health issues or concerns related to COVID-19 to request ADA accommodations.
Faculty and staff who have health issues that result in a higher risk factor related to COVID-19 should file appropriate documentation for accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Employees should work with the Human Resources Department and the Affirmative Action Officer (Jamie Capuano, Vice President for Administrative Services firstname.lastname@example.org) to complete appropriate ADA paperwork and make an appropriate accommodation plan.
A majority of course work will be delivered through remote or distance learning platforms. On-site instruction will be limited to selective labs and clinical coursework. Faculty who reside with, or are the primary caregiver to individuals who are at higher risk for COVID-19, should work with their Department Chair, the Vice President of Academic Affairs. and the Human Resources Department to develop remote work plans that meet the needs of students.
Each department has developed an operational safety and staffing plan. These plans include a mandatory reduced density for each department with rotating on-site operations as needed to complete core departmental functions. If a staff member lives with, or is a primary caregiver to an individual who is at a higher risk for COVID-19, the staff member should work with their Supervisor and the Human Resources Department to develop a remote work plan that meets the needs of the department while taking consideration of the staff member’s needs.
Students who reside with, or are primary caregivers to individuals at a higher risk for COVID-19, and who are scheduled for face to face lab or clinical components should work with their faculty member and the Affirmative Action Officer (Jamie Capuano, Vice President for Administrative Services email@example.com) to determine appropriate accommodations to such requirements.
