Community Safety Practices

The College will continue providing daily cleaning and disinfecting of classrooms, bathrooms, and public spaces. All employees and students will be required to exercise caution and continue practicing social distancing and personal hygiene practices in order to protect from the spread of the coronavirus. 

  • Face Coverings: Face coverings must be worn by ALL persons on campus when in the presence of others (within six feet) and buildings in non-private enclosed settings (e.g., shared workspaces, workstations, meeting rooms, classrooms, etc.). Appropriate use of face coverings is critical in minimizing risks to others, as a person could spread COVID-19 to others even if the person does not feel sick. Note that the face-covering is not a substitute for social distancing, and the primary purpose of masks is to protect others, not-self.
  • Coughing/Sneezing Hygiene: Always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, or use the inside of your elbow, even if wearing a mask. Throw used tissues in the trash immediately after use. Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or if soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Social Distancing: Keeping space between individuals is one of the best tools to avoid being exposed to the COVID-19 virus and slowing its spread. Since people can spread the virus before they know they are sick, it is essential to stay away from others when possible, even if you have no symptoms. Social distancing is necessary for everyone, especially to help protect people who are at higher risk of getting sick. Employees and students on campus should follow these social distancing practices:
    • Maintain a minimum of six feet of space between people whenever feasible
    • Do not gather in groups. When in a meeting or gathering, ensure that the room used allows for adequate distancing
    • Stay out of crowded places and avoid mass gatherings Guidance for Specific Workplace Scenarios
  • Self-screening is an important component of keeping members of the SCCC community healthy. The following Daily Self-Checklists should be consulted prior to traveling to SCCC. On-site temperature screening will also be available for employees, students, and guests. Anyone with a temperature above 100.4 will be asked to leave campus and contact a healthcare provider for guidance.
