Safety at SCC
It is important that our campus community be informed of the procedures and protocols that the College has adopted to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
The entire campus community has an obligation to understand and execute these procedures and protocols in order for them to be effective.
Safety Protocols for Slowing the Spread of the COVID-19 Virus:
The college is dedicated to protecting the health and safety of our employees, students, and the community while fulfilling its mission to educate our students. These protocols include the proper use of face coverings, social distancing, cleaning, and self-screening to slow the spread of the virus.
COVID-19 Campus Exposure Procedures:
The College has developed aggressive Campus Exposure Procedures supported by a dedicated full-time staff member charged with investigating all exposures, possible positive cases, and confirmed positive cases in a timely and efficient manner.
The procedures outline the expectations of an individual who has been exposed to or received a positive diagnosis of COVID-19. They also describe the communication that will occur once the Communicable Disease Team is notified of the exposure or positive diagnosis.
COVID-19 Case Update:
While the College has effective procedures for slowing the spread of the virus, with a campus of several thousand curriculum and continuing education students and over 400 faculty and staff, it is virtually impossible for our campus to avoid being impacted by the COVID-19.
Because communication is essential to the success of any plan, we also want to provide transparency on the status of our COVID-19 Cases. Below is a link that includes weekly updates on the number of confirmed positive cases we have recorded.
Thank you to our faculty, staff, students, and community for everything you are doing to keep our campus safe.
