Health Screening Required for On-Site Work Effective May 27

Friday, May 22, 2020

The College's return-to-work plan includes incremental steps in several phases (full plan will be released soon). Phase 1 is planned to begin May 27. Under this phase, most employees will continue to work remotely.

The following departments have approval for on-campus work in Phase 1. Supervisors in each area are working closely with the Return to the Workplace Task Force and Human Resources on their department's plan with the health of employees and the community top of mind. These decisions, once approved, will be communicated through your respective supervisor.

  • Facilities - Maintenance
  • Facilities - Grounds
  • Campus Safety
  • Equestrian Center
  • Critical/Essential Workers (designated by Senior Leadership and recorded by Human Resources)

All other administrative and academic departments should continue remote work. Supervisors who believe an exception is necessary for other employees to return to campus must contact Human Resources ().

Health Screening Station Requirement

Effective May 27, 2020, all employees coming to campus for on-site work will be required to report to a Health Screening Station BEFORE their worksite for the day.

Please review the Health Assessment Screening Station Guidelines and Face Mask Guidelines. Both of these are subject to revision as this is an ever changing situation.

Health Screening Station Hours of Operation

The Health Screening Station will be open Monday through Friday (closed on holidays) from 7:30 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. Please adjust your on-site working schedule to ensure you're able to be screened before reporting to work on campus. Departments with nontraditional schedules have alternative screening arrangements.

At the Health Screening Station employees will:

  • Wear a face covering or mask during full interaction;
  • Have a photo ID ready to present;
  • Answer three questions related to COVID-19 symptoms, close contact with an individual diagnosed with COVID-19, and air travel in the last 14 days;
  • Have their temperature taken by a no-touch thermometer (must be under 100.4℉).
  • If the employee passes the above requirements, they will receive a visual indicator (i.e. wristband) of their authorization to work that day that will be worn at all times while working on campus.
  • Additional details about the process can be found in the Health Assessment Screening Station Guidelines.
