SCC Return to Campus - Facuilty and Staff
Please know that your safety is a top priority at SCC. When campus opens, you can be confident that all buildings will be disinfected on a regular basis and sanitizing supplies will consistently be used by all college departments. Additionally, social distancing reminders will be placed around campus. To ensure your safety and the safety of others, please review the guidelines below.
Procedures for Arriving and Leaving Campus
To ensure the safety of you, SCC employees and the community, please follow the procedures listed below:
ARRIVING ON CAMPUS
Faculty, staff and students are required to wear a mask when in common areas and shared spaces (when medically able). Mask-wearing is in addition to practicing social distancing, in accordance to CDC recommendations for institutions of higher education.
Students who choose not to wear a mask when in need of services are invited to work with our teams remotely.
General Requirements and Guidelines
COVID-19 has caused SCC to pivot quickly to reimagine how we continue to deliver the high-quality higher education for which we are well-known. As we prepare to resume campus operations, we plan for a phased-in approach. We will each have responsibility for ensuring a safe environment and will be relied upon to wear masks (when medically able), observe social distancing, and more. Training videos must be completed by faculty and staff on or before the first day of returning to campus work.
Please keep six feet of social distancing between you and fellow employees, students, and the community on campus at all times.
Please sanitize your work areas throughout the day. Housekeeping staff will maintain high frequency cleaning of high-traffic areas throughout the day.
Each day you will have your temperature taken prior to entering the building. An employee who experiences fever at or above 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or who is experiencing coughing or shortness of breath cannot be at work.
Face masks or face coverings are required for all faculty and staff in common areas and shared spaces (when medically able). Disposable masks may be provided as available. Cloth face coverings should be laundered every day.
Elevators will have one person occupancy, except in cases where an individual requires assistance from a caregiver. Avoid using elevators when possible.
Please follow occupancy limits posted at each bathroom and stand six feet apart while waiting or wait outside the restroom.
Break rooms will be available for faculty and staff to store food and drinks, wash utensils, etc. Surface areas and appliances should be wiped down before and after each use. Cleaning and sanitizing supplies will be maintained in each break room. Please allow only one person in the break room at a time. Meals should be eaten at individual work spaces or other private areas that conform to social distancing requirements.
Please use videoconferencing or teleconferencing when possible for internal, work-related meetings and gatherings. When videoconferencing or teleconferencing is not possible, hold meetings in open, well-ventilated spaces continuing to maintain a distance of six feet apart and wear face masks (when medically able). Meetings with external parties will be held remotely until further notice.
All mail arriving on campus will be handled by staff on a delay. Interoffice mail should be avoided if at all possible. Please contact your relevant vice president regarding any priority mail.
Use of College Vehicles
Only one person per college vehicle. All collegeowned vehicles will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before being used by another individual.
Deliveries will be directed to the Campus Services Building. The Purchasing Manager will coordinate the receiving and distribution of delivered items. Items that are critical to students, faculty, business operations or the cleaning and maintenance of the campus will be the highest priority. Please contact the Purchasing Manager with further questions about deliveries.
Best Practices and Employee Responsibilities
The Centers for Disease Control guidance states faculty and staff should be educated on steps to take to protect themselves at work or at home by doing the following:
- Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care, and learn what to do if you are sick.
- Inform your supervisor if an individual living within the home is sick with COVID-19 and learn what to do if someone at home is sick.
- Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
- Cover mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, or use the inside of elbow. Throw used tissues into no-touch trash cans and immediately wash hands.
- Practice routine cleaning and disinfection of frequently touched objects. To disinfect, use cleaning supplies provided by Facilities.
- Avoid using other faculty and staff phones, desks, offices, other work tools and equipment.
- When at all possible, use electronic passing and sharing of documents to mitigate transmission of paper.
- Practice social distancing of at least six feet.
- Wear a face mask or face covering in common areas and shared spaces (when medically able).
Additional Supervisor Responsibilities
Faculty and staff taking part in personal travel should adhere to CDC and local health department guidelines regarding isolation after travel.
The Fitness Center will be closed until further notice.
Modification of Return to Campus Plan
These guidelines and procedures may change as necessary to meet CDC guidelines, state or county restrictions, and the needs of SCC, its students, and faculty/staff.
