COVID-19 In-Person Class
Student Health Safety Agreement

Updated July 16, 2021

The health and well-being of our students, faculty and staff is a top priority.  It is important that we follow current guidelines to continue to safely offer educational opportunities at CVCC.

This document provides guidelines for keeping students, instructors, and college staff safe as we reopen following the COVID-19 pandemic for all in-person classes. As a condition for your participation in an in-person class, you will be expected to practice and follow these guidelines consistently for the safety of not only yourself, but for others you will encounter at the college.

For my safety, the College will do the following:
  • Maintain a commitment to keeping educational 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 regular cleaning/disinfecting and other safety practices,
  • Quickly respond to student concerns and/or questions as they may arise, and
  • Adapt, adjust, or change procedures or polices to adhere to CDC, state, or federal policy/guidelines.
Student Expectations:

As a student, I agree to the following conditions to return to class (these conditions are subject to change based on federal, state, or local policy, recommendations, or guidelines):

  1. I will not come to class sick or stay if I am sick. I will contact my instructor so that he/she is aware and can make instructional accommodations if necessary. I will stay in touch regularly with my instructor until I return to class. If he/she has not provided me with contact information, I will ask or contact the Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs office.
  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 attending a class, I find out that I was exposed to someone with COVID 19 outside of class, I will contact my instructor immediately and quarantine per CDC guidelines. My instructor may make instructional accommodations if appropriate. I will stay in touch with my instructor until I return to class.
  3. If I am diagnosed with COVID 19 I will not come to class. If I recently attended class, I will advise my instructor immediately of my diagnosis. I will stay in touch with my instructor as I am able. I will follow current CDC quarantine guidance in consultation with my instructor and college administration. If I need additional support to continue my course, I will contact my advisor (434-832-7800) or the CVCC Community Connections Coordinator.
  4. I will be prepared if this in-person class is moved online. In the event of a new outbreak or change in state guidelines, I understand it is possible my class may be moved online, in  full or partially. I understand that if my class is moved online, I will need access to technology and internet with as little as 24 hours’ notice.  Loaner laptops and hotspots are available for check out in the CVCC Library (434-832-7750).
  5. RECOMMENDATION: I should sign up for the CVCC e2Campus 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 e2Campus Alerts by going to the Campus Life section of the CVCC website and follow the link to e2Campus Alerts or visit https://cvcc.omnilert.net/subscriber.php.
