Safety at SCC
While the severity and number of COVID-19 cases continues to improve, it is important that our campus community understand and adhere to the protocols that the College has adopted to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
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 campus procedures that all faculty, staff, and students are expected to follow:
Positive diagnosis: Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 must notify the Sandhills Community College COVID Team at firstname.lastname@example.org. A member of the team will determine when a positive individual may return to campus based on current CDC guidelines.
Exposure: Individuals who have been exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19 should wear a mask for ten days and get tested on day five.
Illness: Those suffering from a contagious illness should remain off campus until they are fever free and symptoms are improving.
If a diagnosis or illness impacts a student’s ability to participate in class(es), it is important that they notify their instructors as soon as possible.
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 will continue to provide weekly updates of our COVID-19 Cases:
Thank you to our faculty, staff, students, and community for everything you are doing to keep our campus safe.
