Executive Summary



Executive Summary

The New York State Department of Health provided  on June 28, 2020. This report provides the protocols and practices developed by St. John Fisher College, which will be implemented in response to COVID-19 and comply with, or often exceed, the mandatory requirements for Higher Education Institutions in New York as well as applicable federal requirements including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and United States Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The College will remain current with any updates to New York State and federal requirements, and related guidance and will incorporate changes into all activities or safety plans as facts change. We appreciate the guidance from the state and submit the following plan to safely reopen the St. John Fisher College campus.

Our collective work to return to campus is informed by two guiding principles: 1. the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff, and 2. maximizing in-person instruction and delivering the Fisher academic experience that our students and faculty value. Planning for an on-campus fall semester began in May 2020 with the formation of the Campus Reopening Task Force which includes 56 staff and faculty who serve on the steering committee and/or one of four planning teams. The planning teams are focused on teaching and learning, student engagement and success, campus operations, and College relations. To date, the College Relations Planning Team coordinated two student focus groups and three Campus Conversations to provide information, updates, and recommendations with an opportunity for input and questions from students, faculty, and staff. Campus Conversations with employees, students, parents, and community partners will continue through August. The Task Force provided weekly updates to campus constituents beginning June 16, as well as updates at least twice weekly to the President and the President’s Cabinet. The Board of Trustees also met with President Rooney and his Cabinet every month beginning in March.

Community partners made significant contributions to our reopening plan. Throughout this global pandemic, the Monroe County Department of Public Health (MCDPH) provided invaluable support in our response to this public health crisis. Through a Memorandum of 2 Understanding (MOU) between the MCDPH and the College with respect to COVID-19 preparedness and response, this vital support and direction will continue. In addition, our partnership with Rochester Regional Health (RRH) provided valuable education to the members of the Task Force throughout our planning. Our continued relationship will also provide vital health care and support to our community. These community partnerships have provided critical and beneficial information for our planning and policies.

沙巴体育滚球We are focused on mitigating risk and are confident that Fisher’s established community of caring, and the principles, policies, and practices discussed and vetted amongst numerous constituents and stakeholders, and informed by local and state scientifically-supported guidance, will serve as a roadmap to provide a successful semester of learning for our students and a safer community for all.
