The College is currently in Stage 2A and will remain there through the Fall 2020 semester. The majority of students and employees continue to operate in an online only environment. Please check this site often as information is subject to change based on current conditions. (rev. 7/6/20)
Any student or employee who tests positive for COVID-19 should email firstname.lastname@example.org. The information provided will be kept private and confidential, and be used only by the College's trained contact tracers, in consultation with the Harford County Health Department, for contact tracing purposes. Affected campus buildings will be sanitized in accordance with CDC guidelines before reopening.
All individuals on campus are required to wear an approved face covering at all times. If a medical issue prevents this you must request an accommodation for access.
Students: email email@example.com.
Employees: contact Michelle Fredenrich, Benefits and Employee Wellness Specialist
The College has a limited supply of single-use paper masks for students and employees. To the extent possible, everyone is asked to provide their own approved face covering.
The College has installed administrative and engineering controls to enforce social distancing (i.e., Plexiglas barriers, furniture reconfiguration) as well as floor and wall signage to enforce social distancing, mask-wearing, and handwashing. Measures have been taken to increase the level of fresh air that is circulated in campus buildings. Access to buildings is restricted; all individuals must first successfully undergo the screening process before being admitted to any building. Public Safety will maintain a record of any individual who enters a campus building to assist in contact tracing efforts in the event that someone who has been on campus later tests positive for COVID-19.
Buildings that are in use will be deep cleaned nightly. Throughout the day, common-use areas will be wiped down by the College's housekeeping staff. In high-traffic areas (e.g., classrooms, student services offices), cleaning will occur between each use.
No. The College will not require vaccination as a condition for returning to campus—for students or employees.
The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NJCAA) has mandated a shift of all close-contact fall sports to the spring semester. These sports include men's and women's soccer and court volleyball; however, men's and women's cross country will remain in the fall. All winter sports competition, which includes men’s and women's basketball, will begin in January. Fall "off-season" practices are allowed by the NJCAA and will be scheduled on staggered times and dates to allow adequate time to take the proper health and safety precautions as student-athletes enter and exit their assigned fields or courts.
In Fall 2020, registered student organizations (RSOs) will conduct all organizational activities in a virtual arena utilizing new and existing technologies to keep students engaged. RSO advisors and club members will receive further training and information concerning programming and complying with COVID-19 safety and health guidelines. For additional questions concerning RSOs, please contact Jo Chase.
The College reserves the right to deny any person entrance to the College or to remove any person from the buildings or grounds of the College who poses a risk of harm to our students, employees, other visitors, or property. Students or employees failing to comply with the screening measures and/or wear a face mask, as directed, will be escorted off campus by the Department of Public Safety. Any person who fails or refuses to leave property owned or controlled by the College after being asked to do so by Public Safety shall be in violation of
Section 26-102 of the Education Article, Maryland Annotated Code, and will be subject to arrest and criminal penalties upon conviction.
