Campus update for Sept. 4, 2020
Sept. 4, 2020
New telehealth service has you covered
Students now have free 24/7 access to medical and mental health visits through Students.Care.
Students.Care can be used any time by students on and off campus, and by students who prefer virtual options.
Don't forget class on Monday!
Classes will be held on Labor Day, Sept. 7.
The academic calendar was revised last spring. The college also will hold classes the day before Thanksgiving, Nov. 25.
We've been asked 'Why two weeks?'
When you returned, we asked you to not leave campus for two weeks.
The goal is to limit transmission of COVID-19 on campus.
Two weeks gives us time to test our protocols, and three weeks of COVID-19 testing data. (One round of tests was done before classes started.)
Of course, 14 days also aligns with research about the incubation period of COVID-19, which ranges from 2-14 days.
We will be prepared to change protocols as necessary, as well as extend the period in which you must stay on campus.
COVID-19 disciplinary charges
The Dean of Students sent an email yesterday about what can happen if you violate the social gathering limit of 10 students. Interim actions may include suspension, separation from campus or withdrawal of campus privileges.
