By protecting your health, you protect others. When others protect their health, they protect you.

IMPORTANT HEALTH STATEMENT:
All students, faculty and staff are required to notify the college if:
  • You are exposed to COVID-19
  • You test positive for COVID-19
  • You have symptoms of COVID-19

As Pioneers, we're used to being tough and moving forward, no matter what.  When it comes to COVID-19, it's tempting to tough it out and keep working when you are exposed or feel sick.

But COVID-19 doesn't just affect us as individuals, it affects ALL of us. For that reason, we need to do things differently than we might normally.

The information below will help you know what to do if COVID-19 affects you. We're in this together, and you won't be alone. Pioneers take care of Pioneers!

#1. INDOORS: WEAR A MASK UNLESS YOU ARE ALONE.  Wearing a mask keeps you from spreading the virus if you are infected and don't yet know it. All staff and faculty will be given masks, and you may also bring your own.
Image
#2. SOCIAL DISTANCE: STAY SIX FEET APART EVERYWHERE POSSIBLE.  Staying six feet apart protects you and others from virus droplets that can be spread through breathing, talking, sneezing or coughing. Practice social distancing even when wearing a mask.
Image
#3. OUTDOORS: IF YOU SOCIAL DISTANCE, YOU DON'T NEED A MASK.  Virus droplets disperse quickly in the open air, making it safer to be outside. You still need to practice social distancing outside at all times.

#4. WASH YOUR HANDS AND COVER COUGHS AND SNEEZES.  Hand washing kills COVID-19. Use warm water and soap, and scrub for at least 20 seconds. Do this frequently throughout the day. Or use a hand sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol.

#5. TRACK YOUR HEALTH EVERY DAY BY USING THE WORKSAFE APP.  Everyone is required to report their health each day before coming to campus or starting work. This FREE app will be available to all faculty and staff before July 3.

As Pioneers Together, we'll work to prevent COVID-19 spread on campus

Keeping the campus community protected from COVID-19 will take all of us: students, staff and faculty. Here's the full plan for how SMC will work across the four major areas of protection - hygiene, masks, social distancing and health tracking - to slow or prevent a COVID-19 outbreak from closing campus this fall.
