On Monday, May 18, SLCC will begin a “soft” reopening of the college. This event is marked by the return of a limited number of employees to campus. Employees on campus next week are asked to adhere to the following guidelines in order to ensure the safety of everyone.
Daily Symptom Check
Before you leave your home, conduct a symptom check and stay home (or seek medical attention) if you experience any of the following symptoms:
· Fever of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or above
· Trouble breathing
· Sore throat
· Muscle aches and pains
· Sudden changes in smell or taste
· Feel generally unwell
SLCC Recommends Following CDC, State and Local Protocols
While on campus, SLCC asks that employees follow these guidelines to slow the spread of COVID-19:
· Face coverings should be worn in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
· Stay 6 feet away from others whenever possible.
· Follow strict hygiene standards, including:
o Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use hand sanitizer as needed when handwashing is not possible.
o Avoid touching your face.
o Cover coughs or sneezes (e.g. into a tissue, or hands, then wash hands immediately afterward).
o Regularly clean high-touch surfaces (e.g. door handles, counters, light switches, remote controls, restroom surfaces, arms of chairs) in between in-person appointments.
· Do not shake hands.
· In-person interactions should take place only in groups consisting of 20 or fewer people so that all social distancing guidelines can be maintained.
· Limit out-of-state travel and quarantine for 14 days upon returning home.
Face Coverings and Sanitizing Supplies
A limited supply of reusable face masks is available through the public safety drive-up window (open weekdays 8:30-4) at the Gunderson Building on the Taylorsville Redwood Campus. Please contact your supervisor if you are unsuccessful at obtaining a face mask before returning to campus. Follow CDC and Utah Department of Health guidance on face mask use and sanitizing.
The college will also provide cleaning/sanitizing supplies, and hand sanitizing stations are available at convenient locations on all campuses.
As a reminder, disposable masks and gloves should be disposed in trash receptacles and not in recycling bins.
Many buildings are locked, so be sure to contact your supervisor before returning to campus to ensure you will have access to your building.
If you are bringing a laptop or other equipment on campus for shared use, please sanitize the equipment using departmental resources. Check manufacturers cleaning instructions as needed, and note that shared workstations should be sanitized after each use.
Breaks and Water
All employees should adhere to the following:
· Coordinate breaks to allow social distancing in break rooms.
· Sanitize shared surfaces in break rooms after use.
· Use no-touch water filling stations where available.
· Avoid drinking from drinking fountains. Instead, fill containers using the “clean catch” dispensers (bottle-filling stations) and avoid direct contact.
· Wash hands after filling water from sinks.
Emotional Well Being
