Thanks to everyone who was able to join us at the All Staff meeting yesterday.   For any of you who were unable to attend and take part in this discussion, we wanted to clarify that because of the continued escalation in cases due to the Omicron variant, for faculty who chose to temporarily move their F2F sections to remote instruction, we have    extended to February 14 the deadline for returning face-to-face classes to campus.  Please remember to discuss your plans to return your class to campus with your dean.

If you have any questions about this guidance, please do not hesitate to reach out for clarification and additional information.

Be careful, stay safe, and thank you for all you do for our students and this community.

COVD-19 Resources and Information

* Protocols:   As always, perform a daily wellness check, do not come to campus if you may be ill, wear a mask, keep six feet of physical distance from others if at all possible, engage in regular hand hygiene, and report any illness you or others may be experiencing through our college protocols. Protocols for reporting illness, whether from students or employees, are contained on the dashboard here. We also have three shifts of custodial staff cleaning our spaces regularly.

** An essential component of the process is reporting any illness or suspected exposure to COVID (of yourself or others, including students) through the COVID Questionnaire; please report as soon as possible – time is of the essence. This action initiates the college’s robust contact tracing and notification process.
