Containment

Containment includes plans for how to respond to positive or suspected cases as well as preventative policies and practices

The following considerations must be included, at a minimum:


Isolation

沙巴体育滚球Identify how to isolate symptomatic individuals, both residential and non-residential (as applicable). Plans must specifically identify where individuals will be residing (e.g. residence halls, hotels, home) throughout the duration of their isolation, as well as the support system that will be provided including food, medicine, psychosocial, academic and/or other support, as needed.

  • The College will coordinate with MCDPH concerning the issue of Mandatory Isolation Health Orders for students who meet the isolation criteria.
  • Symptomatic students and employees who test positive or are presumed positive for COIVD-19 will self-isolate off campus until they are cleared to return.
  • The College will follow the NYS DOH’s “Interim Guidance for Public and Private Employees Returning to Work Following COVID-19 Infection or Exposure.”
  • Residential students who test positive for COVID-19, or are diagnosed by a medical care provider as a presumed positive case, will either return home to isolate or be temporarily housed off-campus at a nearby hotel in individual rooms with private bathrooms.
  • If located at the hotel, food and medication will be provided in their room.
  • Students who isolate off-campus at the college-sponsored hotel will be followed via telehealth by a registered nurse from RRH. If the student’s condition deteriorates, they will be triaged to the appropriate level of care through the RRH system.
  • RRH will utilize Datos, a remote care platform that agnostically integrates with wearable and medical devices to deliver relevant patient information.
  • A care coordinator, located in the College’s Health and Wellness Center, will provide direct support for all students who are isolated to ensure they have health and academic support.
  • Psychosocial and/or academic support will be provided via Zoom if needed.

Quarantine

沙巴体育滚球Identify how exposed individuals (residential and non-residential) will be quarantined away from others, including the support system that will be provided including food, medicine, psychosocial, academic and/or other support, as needed.

  • The College will coordinate with MCDPH concerning the issue of Mandatory Quarantine Health Orders for students who meet the quarantine criteria.
  • Students and employees who are exposed to COVID-19 will quarantine until they are cleared to return. Employees and students who commute will quarantine at home. Residential students may choose to quarantine at home, on campus, or at a nearby hotel (provided by the College) depending on their individual situation.
  • The College will follow the NYS DOH’s “Interim Guidance for Public and Private Employees Returning to Work Following COVID-19 Infection or Exposure.”
  • If quarantined on campus, the student will not share a room or bathroom.
  • Students quarantined on campus or at the hotel will be monitored by the College’s Health and Wellness Center staff remotely, to reduce risk of infection to others. In-person care will be escalated immediately, when needed. Food and medication will be delivered to their rooms.
  • The College’s health care provider will utilize Datos, a remote care platform that agnostically integrates with wearable and medical devices to deliver relevant patient information.
  • A care coordinator, located in the College’s Health and Wellness Center, will provide direct support for all students who are quarantined to ensure they have health and academic support.
  • Instructors will provide remote learning for students. Psychosocial and/or academic support will be provided via Zoom if needed.

Students confirmed or suspected to have COVID-19

Residential institutions need to include plans to monitor and provide medical care and other health services to students who test positive and are in isolation, need more advanced medical care, or who are awaiting test results.

  • Residential students who test positive can choose to isolate at home or at the off-campus hotel provided by the College.
  • Students who are isolated at the college-sponsored hotel will be monitored by medical staff at Rochester Regional Health (RRH) remotely to reduce risk of infection to others. In-person care will be escalated immediately, when needed.
  • Students who are awaiting test results and quarantined on campus or at the hotel will be monitored by the College’s Health and Wellness Center staff remotely, to reduce risk of infection to others. Food will be delivered to their rooms.
  • RRH and the College’s staff will utilize Datos, a remote care platform that agnostically integrates with wearable and medical devices to deliver relevant patient information.
  • A care coordinator, located in the College’s Health and Wellness Center, will provide direct support for all students who are isolated to ensure they have health and academic support.

Hygiene, cleaning, and disinfection

沙巴体育滚球Implement strategies for cleaning and disinfection of exposed areas and appropriate notification to occupants of such areas.

  • The College will work with a cleaning contractor for cleaning and disinfection of exposed areas in the event an individual is confirmed to have COVID-19, following the CDC guidelines on “Cleaning and Disinfecting Your Facility.”
  • EPA-registered cleaning products and methods or application will be used for cleaning and disinfecting.
  • Cleaning and disinfecting protocols have been developed for all areas of campus, focusing on high use and high touch areas.
  • All classrooms, public areas, and office suites will be supplied with cleaning supplies and hand sanitizer.

Communication

沙巴体育滚球Develop plans to share protocols and safety measures taken by the institution.

Working with the College Relations Planning Team, Task Force Steering Committee, and President’s Cabinet, the Office of Marketing and Communications has or will develop several communication tools to communicate updates including:

  • Campus Reopening Website
  • Campus Reopening Handbook (quick reference guide for frequently asked questions surrounding policy changes, etc.)
  • Social media promotion
  • Campus Reopening Task Force Update Template (using MailChimp tool)
  • Campus Reopening Video Messages and Live Zoom Sessions
  • Calling All Cardinals Campaign: By phone, connect with at least 50 percent of current undergraduate students (rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors) at St. John Fisher College to “check-in” on how they are doing and answer their questions and concerns.
  • First-year students and incoming transfer students are connecting with the College through Admissions and Great Beginnings, our summer academic orientation program.
  • Countdown to Campus Video Series: Use to educate the campus community about what they can expect upon their return to campus, what new policies and procedures are in place, and ways we hope they can help us come together as a campus to keep everyone healthy and safe.
