The Department of Public Safety will contact the applicable public health authorities to determine what steps, Sinclair should take next, including assisting with contract tracing.

If I am Sick...

Anyone with a temperature above 100 degrees experiencing COVID-19 related symptoms, e.g. fever, cough, or shortness of breath, should not come to work/class on campus, or if on campus, should leave immediately. Call your health care provider and follow instructions.

Employees

Anyone experiencing COVID-19 symptoms while at work, will be sent home and the workspace will be immediately cleaned. Other employees in the same area will be relocated or sent home.

Anyone experiencing COVID-19 symptoms should seek guidance from a physician or other qualified health care provider and should not come to work if the physician/health care provider so directs.

Anyone who does not come to work on campus, or who leaves campus for any of these reasons, must notify their supervisor as soon as possible. The employee must also follow all standard procedures for reporting illness/absence/request for leave.
