A. Communication Protocols

If students, employees or invited visitors test positive or are suspected of having COVID-19 based on symptoms, travel history, and/or close contact with an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19, they should follow the COVID-19 protocols for isolation and masking found in the Personal Safety Practices found in this guide.

Employees required to stay home and isolate due to COVID-19 should contact their supervisor or departmental HR representative regarding available leave.

B. Cleaning and Disinfection

Regular cleaning and disinfection of surfaces helps to prevent the spread of germs that can make people sick. Guidance on proper cleaning and disinfection of surfaces is provided by the CDC.
