COVID-19 On-Site Work Environment
Faculty and Staff Health Safety Agreement

Updated January 20, 2022

The health and well-being of our students, faculty and staff is a top priority. With the current and uncertain future of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is imperative we follow very specific guidelines until such time as the pandemic ends.

This document provides guidelines for keeping students, faculty, and staff safe for all ON-SITE WORK/EMPLOYMENT ACTIVITIES. As a condition for your return to the on-site work environment, you will be expected to practice and follow these guidelines consistently for the safety of not only yourself, but for others you will encounter on-site.

For my safety, the College/my employer will do the following:

  • Maintain a commitment to keeping educational/academic interruptions to a minimum and helping students stay on track to complete their programs of study;
  • Continue steps to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19;
  • Provide hand sanitizers and hand sanitizing stations on-site; provide regular cleaning/disinfecting of common areas such as water fountains and restrooms;
  • Respond to faculty and staff concerns and/or questions as they may arise, and;
  • Adapt, adjust, or change procedures or policies to adhere to CDC, state, or federal policy/guidelines.
 
Faculty and Staff Expectations:

As an employee, I agree to the following conditions to return to work on-site (these conditions are subject to change based on federal, state, or local policy, recommendations, or guidelines):

  1. I will not come to campus sick or stay if I am sick. I will contact my supervisor so that he/she is aware. I will stay in touch regularly with my supervisor until I return to work.
  2. I will wear a mask when I am indoors on the CVCC campus per the Virginia Community College mask mandate. The mandate allows for instructors/presenters to remove masks when instructing students from a safe distance or from behind a plexiglass barrier.
  3. Vaccination status and associated safety requirements must be disclosed if federal and state policy requires it.  If I am not already vaccinated, I am aware that a vaccination is available.  Vaccination information is available at https://vaccinate.virginia.gov/ or by calling (877) 829-4682.
  4. If after being on campus, I find out that I was directly exposed to someone with COVID 19, I will contact my supervisor immediately and quarantine per CDC guidelines. I may make instructional or work accommodations if appropriate. I will stay in touch with my supervisor until I am eligible to return to campus.
  5. If I am diagnosed with COVID 19 I will not come to campus. I will advise Human Resources and my supervisor immediately of my diagnosis. I will stay in touch with my supervisor as I am able. I will follow current VDH/CDC quarantine guidance in consultation with my supervisor and college administration.
  6. I will be prepared if instruction or work is moved online. In the event of a new outbreak or change in state guidelines, I understand it is possible my work may be moved online, in full or partially. I understand that if my work is moved online, I may  need access to technology and internet with as little as 24 hours' notice.
  7. RECOMMENDATION: I should sign up for the CVCC emergency alerts so that I will receive school-wide bulletins and update TEXTS/EMAILS not only about closing, but other emergency information I should know. For the latest emergency closing information, please sign up for CVCC emergency alerts here: https://cvcc.omnilert.net/subscriber.php.
 
Signature

By signing below, I agree to the above Employee Expectations as a condition of returning to on-site work/employment. If, at any time, I fail to follow any of these conditions, I understand I may be subjected to possible disciplinary action, up to and including termination. This agreement will become part of my official personnel file.
