Faculty and staff who test positive for COVID-19, are displaying symptoms consistent with COVID-19, or have had close contact with a person with COVID-19 are reminded to inform their supervisors, stay home, and consult with a physician regarding treatment and testing options. Effective May 19, 2022, the College is suspending its case tracking/management processes offered through the firstname.lastname@example.org email.
With regard to positive cases of COVID-19 for faculty and staff, the following guidance remains in place –
Employees testing positive should isolate for a period of five days from the date of their positive test or the onset of symptoms, whichever occurred first;
They should make their supervisors aware of the positive test and work in conjunction with their supervisors and Human Resources to address potential time away from work; and
They should reach out to their close contacts to let them know of their positive test.
The CDC currently recommends that individuals exposed to COVID-19 do not quarantine but wear a high quality mask for 10 days, get tested on day 5 and stay home if symptoms develop.
