Updates to Spring 2022 College COVID-19 Procedure

In conjunction with the CDC and our local and state health departments, the following adjustments have been made to College COVID-19 procedures and are effective immediately.

  • Updated quarantine time for students and employees who are symptomatic or test positive for COVID-19 (page 11): Individuals are considered symptomatic if they exhibit any of the following new symptoms: a fever of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, new loss of taste or smell, nausea/vomiting or diarrhea, muscle or body aches, fatigue, headache, sore throat, congestion, or runny nose.
  • Students and employees who test positive for COVID-19 should follow College procedures, the advice of their health care provider, and Department of Health and Human Services state guidelines including:
    • Consult a health care provider.
    • Quarantine for seven (7) days.
    • Students must contact their program director and complete the Student Quarantine Self-Reporting form.
    • Employees must contact their supervisor and Human Resources and complete the Employee Quarantine Self-Reporting form.
    • Students need to complete the Return to Clarkson College Student Self-Certification form to be released from tracking. Those returning to clinical need to also follow the clinic site-specific return-to-work guidelines and program-specific handbook requirements.
    • Employees need to complete the Clarkson College Employee Self-Certification form to be released from tracking.

Please review Our Path Ahead to Spring 2022 Guide which outlines COVID-19 campus processes and procedures. Information regarding the College response to the pandemic is always available on our Coronavirus Resources webpage.

As a friendly reminder, masks are required in all public areas on the Clarkson College campus where social distancing cannot occur including hallways, labs and classrooms. While at clinicals, students and faculty will continue to observe that institution’s mask policies.

Thank you for your willingness to adapt with us and for helping make Clarkson College a safe and healthy campus.
