Health and Safety Practices
With the health and safety of our campus community in mind, the College has adopted a number of proactive health and safety measures in accordance with guidance from local, state and federal health officials. These measures include:
- The requirement that all faculty, staff and students wear face coverings in classrooms, communal spaces within campus buildings, and when social distancing is not possible;
- The provision of cleaning supplies near classrooms and offices enabling students, faculty and staff to wipe down work surfaces;
- Reconfigured furniture and equipment to decrease room and building density;
- The installation of hand sanitizer stations throughout campus;
- Limiting the number of people in elevators;
- Establishing single-direction stairways and building entrances and exits (when possible);
- Posting informational signage throughout campus reinforcing various health practices, including handwashing, social distancing and mask wearing.
These measures are built upon the expectation that each and every one of us, individually and collectively, will take responsibility for our own health and the health of others to limit the spread of COVID-19 on our campus and within our community.
Testing and Contact Tracing
COVID-19 testing and contact tracing will be part of the College’s multi-pronged approach to maintaining the health and safety of the campus community. We will continue to refine these plans and additional information will be shared as fall semester approaches.
