COVID-19 Reporting Guide for Faculty and Staff for Students with COVID-19
Once someone is identified as having tested positive for COVID-19, they will be required to follow the College’s COVID-19 Isolation, Quarantine & Testing Protocol.
If an instructor or staff member receives information of a possible COVID positive incident in yourclass or in any areas on campus follow these steps to help facilitate an effective response.
Reporting a COVID-19+ Student
- Faculty or staff who receive a report of a suspected or confirmed COVID-19+ student should notify the College’s COVID Response Team via email at COVIDresponse@ccp.edu, and the Dean of Students Office at firstname.lastname@example.org, and copy their Academic Dean/AVP.
- The COVID Response Team will reach out to the student to determine appropriate next steps in accordance with the College’s COVID-19 Isolation, Quarantine & Testing Protocol. No further action will be required by the faculty or staff member unless directed by the COVID Response Team.
Students who are suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19 should contact the COVID Response Team at COVIDresponse@ccp.edu or call (215)751-8035 (press “Option 1” for COVID inquiries, then press “Option 2” for students) and follow the College’s COVID-19 Isolation, Quarantine and Testing Protocol.
Each academic area will need to determine how best to address how they will accommodate a student who has contracted COVID-19 with regard to due dates for assignments/tests. Some students have managed with minor issues due to COVID and others have become very ill at home, with a few needing to be hospitalized for a short period. This must be taken into consideration.
How to Proceed with the Course After a COVID-19 Incident
In most cases, there will be no need to suspend class or move to a virtual format due to a COVID-19 incident, unless otherwise required by the health and safety standards of the academic program. The COVID Response Team will advise the Academic Dean/AVP if there is evidence indicating a class should switch to a virtual format. If there are any questions regarding whether class should go forward, the Academic Dean/AVP should coordinate with the COVID Response Team to determine next steps.
Faculty or Staff Exposure
Faculty or staff who are confirmed or suspected to have contracted COVID-19 should notify their Department Head/supervisor and the COVID Response Team at COVIDresponse@ccp.edu or call (215)751-8035 (press “Option 1” for COVID inquiries, then press “Option 1” for employees) and follow the applicable protocol in the College’s COVID-19 Isolation, Quarantine and Testing Protocol. The COVID Response Team will respond in accordance with the protocol.
