COVID-19 In-Person Class
Faculty and Staff Health Safety Agreement

Updated July 16, 2021

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 work on-site if I am sick or stay on-site if I am sick. I will contact my supervisor so that he/she is aware and can provide guidance, as necessary. I will stay in touch regularly with my supervisor during my work absence. If he/she has not provided me with guidance, I will contact my next level supervisor or Human Resources;
  2. Vaccination status and associated safety requirements are on my honor.  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.
    • If I am fully vaccinated,
      • I am not required to wear a face covering or maintain social distancing.  If I am uncomfortable around others, I am allowed to wear a face covering and maintain social distancing at my discretion.
    • If I am unvaccinated, to protect myself and others, I understand that it is recommended by the CDC, but not required or enforced by CVCC that:
      • I should get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as I am eligible and I should continue to follow the steps below every day until I am fully vaccinated.
        • Wear a mask over your nose and mouth.
        • Stay at least 6 feet away from people who don’t live with you.
        • Avoid crowded areas and poorly ventilated spaces.
      • If after returning to work on-site, I find out that I was exposed to someone with COVID-19 outside of the work environment, I will contact my supervisor immediately and quarantine per CDC guidelines. My supervisor, in consultation with Human Resources, may offer work accommodations, e.g., telework options, alternative work options, etc., if appropriate for the type of job/position I hold at the college. I will stay in touch with my supervisor and Human Resources during my work absence;
  3. If I am diagnosed with COVID-19 I will not come on-site to work. If I recently worked on-site, I will advise my supervisor immediately of my diagnosis. I will stay in touch with my supervisor and Human Resources as I am able. I will not return to work on-site until I have been authorized by Human Resources.
  4. I will be prepared if the college is moved to a fully remote work environment for all employees. In the event of a new outbreak or change in state guidelines, I understand it is possible the college may be moved to a full or partial work environment. I understand that if this occurs, I will need access to technology and internet with as little as 24 hours’ notice;
  5. RECOMMENDATION: I should sign up for my College’s Alert System so that I will receive school-wide bulletins and update TEXTS/EMAILS not only about closings, but  other emergency information I should know. For  the latest emergency closing information, please sign up.
 
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.
