Please continue to assist us in monitoring for potential COVID outbreaks by reporting any exposure or positive test results of students or employees to [email protected]

 

To best protect our campuses, the College has taken the below steps:

  • Vaccination clinics were offered at both campus locations in 2021. 
  • Masks were ordered and provided to employees and students.  
  • An online COVID-19 reporting tool was created to help the institution monitor for potential outbreaks, clean, and disinfect spaces where exposure occurred, and the opportunity to provide rapid testing as needed. 
  • COVID-19 testing will be scheduled on campus throughout the semester and will be available on request.

What is COVID-19?
COVID-19 is a respiratory disease caused by SARS-CoV-2. The virus spreads mainly from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. Some people infected may not have symptoms. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS)

Here’s what you can do to stay healthy:

As always, it is recommended that you follow such standard hygiene practices as:

  • Washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not readily available
  • Staying home when you are sick
  • Covering the nose and mouth with elbow or a tissue when coughing or sneezing
  • Avoiding touching eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Maintain social distancing at least 3 feet apart when indoors with someone outside your immediate family
  • Wear a mask indoors if you are in an area of substantial or higher transmissions

What if I get sick?
You should contact your healthcare professional immediately. If you test positive for COVID, you should isolate for at least 5 days after receiving a positive test and at least three days after of having a fever.
