Restart 足球外围app

Fall 2020 Reopening Plans

The Restart 足球外围app plan has been approved by SUNY and meets the New York State Department of Health’s Reopening New York Higher Education Guidelines. This plan will be our guide as we restart on-campus operations. The plan remains subject to change due to new information, guidance and/or direction received from the State of New York and the Governor’s Office.

We will regularly update this page with new information as more details emerge, so please visit it often.

Message from the President

"I'm pleased to announce that we are welcoming you back to 足球外围app in August. We're doing our very best to ensure a safe and healthy environment this semester, and you will play a big role in making that happen."

- 足球外围app下载 President Denise A. Battles

The success of this Restart Plan depends on 足球外围app’s greatest strength: our community. Everyone has a responsibility to follow public health protocols at all times. We understand that an unwavering commitment to protecting the health and safety of our community lies with each of us. We also acknowledge that COVID-19 impacts groups differently, and we pledge to embrace a community response that is inclusive and equitable.

足球外围app下载 is located in the Finger Lakes Region of New York, which has met Governor Andrew Cuomo’s seven metrics for restarting and—at the time of this writing—is in phase four of reopening. The College has a strong relationship and is in regular contact with the Livingston County Department of Health (DOH); the College has also been in close contact with the University of Rochester Medical Center regarding potential institutional approaches in support of public health and campus safety. These factors place 足球外围app下载 in an advantageous situation for reopening in the fall.

The College envisions enhanced public health measures across campus to limit the risk of transmitting illness. These include required use of face coverings in all classrooms and any public space where six-foot social distancing cannot be accomplished; a daily health screening that includes a self-administered temperature check; strong recommendations that all members of the campus community obtain early flu vaccinations; significantly increasing the number of hand-sanitizer stations available throughout common areas and using touch-free dispensers where possible; and the implementation of hygiene measures and physical distancing in classrooms, commons spaces, and high-traffic areas. This will include designating entrance/exit points, creating appropriate signage to indicate traffic flow, marking floors consistent with social distancing guidelines, and posting updated room usage information in all common areas.

Our pandemic response plans are necessarily dynamic as needs and standards continue to evolve. Plans reported are subject to change. As we look at appropriate responses to this pandemic, our commitment to health and safety remains our top priority.

Restart Leadership Team

Restart Leadership Team

To support the restart effort, the College commissioned a Coronavirus Incident Leadership Team, which has responsibility for immediate action management of issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The College also has several planning committees and workgroups focusing on specific issues, including the academic experience, the student experience, financial sustainability, infectious disease testing and screening, and data monitoring. Senior campus leaders oversee each entity, with student, faculty, and union leader participation. Results of campus planning efforts follow.

Amended Academic Calendar

Amended Academic Calendar

The College has amended the academic calendar to ensure the health and safety of the campus and to help facilitate a rapid transition to remote if necessary. The traditional fall break has been eliminated and we have added two “rejuvenation days” in the middle of week four (Sept. 30) and week eight (Oct. 27). The Thanksgiving holiday occurs as normally scheduled at week 12. If conditions do not support in-person classes after Thanksgiving break, the balance of the semester will be completed remotely.

Academic Program Planning

Academic Program Planning

The College has a comprehensive plan for academic continuity. This plan is subject to change should conditions warrant. All students will be invited to return to campus for modified in-person and online instruction. Specific elements of the plan include:

  • Offer classes in multiple formats including in-person, hybrid, and online. Hybrid courses will rely on a “flipped” approach that moves some activities outside the classroom, such as assigning lectures as homework via video or other media, and utilizes classroom time for discussion, small group work, and other highly-engaged activities. Due to limited classroom capacity, hybrid courses may also involve a rotation of cohorts throughout the week.
  • Offer modified versions of academic experiences that typically require in-person or hands-on work, including curricular-based high-impact, applied, and integrative learning experiences (e.g., labs, performances, student teaching and practica, internships and other community-based learning, and student activities) and ensure equitable access for students who may not be able to participate in person.
  • Revise library operations and space usage plans to accommodate physical distancing and sanitization, limit circulation and regularly clean materials, maximize the use of Open Educational Resources (OER) in courses, expand remote research consultations and instructional sessions, and increase options for alternative forms of group study.
  • Expand student academic support, including instructional modules focused on study skills and growth-mindset; resource modules that orient students to online instruction; technical support and online concierge services; training for tutors and other academic support positions; and usage of the campus early alert system to coordinate care for students who encounter challenges.
  • Prioritize outreach to student cohorts who may need additional support by conducting campaigns through the campus early alert system, enhancing cohort-based support programs, and revising processes and follow up for students who self-identify concerns.
  • Faculty have been strongly encouraged to develop fall semester courses as “remote-ready.” This will ensure that the curriculum is accessible to students who may need to access classes online and is easily adaptable to potential changes in public health conditions during the semester. Remote-ready design makes use of the Canvas learning management system to deliver course materials, prioritizes accessibility, and reflects best practices in online course instruction. Although we anticipate in-person learning experiences, remote-ready preparations are intended to be responsive to a range of possible scenarios in the fall.

Should public health conditions worsen, the College has developed a plan to rapidly transition all classes to entirely online. Specific elements include:

  • Deliver all courses online and provide online versions of academic experiences that typically require in-person or hands-on work.
  • Implement college-wide strategies to promote remote engagement and conversations across student experiences.
  • Offer remote-only library services, including curtailment of the circulation of physical materials in the collection and from Information Delivery Service (IDS), providing access to electronic resources only, and providing all research help and library instruction online.
  • Support student academic success in online learning by enhancing cohort-based support programs and offer all tutoring and academic support services online.
  • Conduct regular remote outreach to students who are struggling, who have ceased work in classes, or who need assistance in navigating college policies and procedures remotely through the campus early alert system.

Classroom and Lab Capacity and Protocols

All classrooms have been reviewed to determine capacity within parameters of proper public health physical-distancing guidelines. The College has also identified additional spaces on campus that may be utilized for instructional purposes. Many larger classes have moved online, thus increasing classroom availability, and we are currently developing plans to ensure that all in-person and hybrid courses are assigned classrooms appropriate for social distancing.

The College will follow public health guidelines for sanitation and hygiene in classrooms and labs. These include:

  • Face coverings will be required in all instructional spaces. Appropriate capacity signage will be posted and furniture will be removed or reconfigured to allow for physical distancing.

Residence Halls

Residence Halls

Guidance from the Livingston County Department of Health recommends focusing on hygiene, sanitation, and management of high-usage spaces such as restrooms. Specific plans include:

  • Provide ongoing education about and reinforcement of expectations regarding healthy practices, hygiene and sanitation, PPE usage, and civic responsibility.
  • Require students to bring thermometers to campus.
  • Distribute and replenish masks to students. We will offer a variety of face coverings to our campus community to meet broad needs, including a mix of reusable cloth and disposable face coverings. We will make reasonable accommodations for face coverings for our students and employees, such as utilizing clear face shields/masks to support those who rely on lip-reading. We will require face coverings in public locations where six-foot social distancing cannot be maintained. Face coverings will be required in instructional spaces including classrooms, lecture halls, and laboratories, and in common areas in residence halls and our other campus buildings.
  • Students living in suite-style residence hall units will continue to share common spaces in those suites in small, family-style groups. A limited number of Superior Singles will be made available. Medical Singles will be made available, upon request, for those who qualify through our Office of Accessibility Services.
  • Prohibit guests from residence halls, including those living in other residence halls.
  • Arrange residence hall common spaces to meet physical distancing standards and/or restrict usage of common areas in accord with DOH/CDC guidance.
  • Implement procedures for residence hall programs to manage participation, including limits on the number of attendees and an RSVP system to track and cap attendance.
  • Implement common disinfecting measures for any shared items (e.g. games, cooking utensils, moving carts, and cleaning equipment).
  • Develop a restroom use plan that factors in hygiene recommendations from DOH/CDC.
  • Implement physical distancing and other safety measures for all regular business, including staff meetings, training, programming, student conduct interventions, and duty and crisis response.
  • Ensure residence hall move-in plans allow for physical distancing and safety precautions. Provisions include limiting access points and staggering arrival times, limiting the number of guests who assist with move-in, and, if feasible, securing additional move-in equipment that will allow for maximum social distancing and sanitization.
  • Develop a residence hall move-out plan that can be implemented within 48 hours should health conditions necessitate a suspension of residential operations.
  • Follow established protocols for organizing living arrangements for students who must be isolated or quarantined. Jones Hall will be used to house students who are exposed to or test positive for coronavirus, with separate quarters for those who have tested positive and those who have been isolated due to contact with an infected party. Students in isolation/quarantine will receive instructions about safe hygiene, sanitization, and movement restrictions. The health of quarantined on- and off-campus students will be monitored daily by the Livingston County Department of Health, and the College will provide necessary services such as meal delivery, laundry and disposal services, and self-care kits to students quarantined on campus. Medical intervention will be provided as needed through Health and Counseling Services and external partners (e.g., ambulance transportation to the University of Rochester Medical Center).
Dining Services

Dining Services

Campus dining service operations will follow compliance standards on room capacity, sanitization, and physical distancing. Dining operations are being adjusted to reinforce physical distancing, hygiene, and sanitation. Masks will be required for entry to dining centers and must be worn by employees and diners at all times, except when seated to eat. Where possible separate entrances and exits will be established, and queues will be kept to a minimum with distancing indicators in place throughout.

Table spacing and numbers of chairs will be adjusted to increase spacing for dine-in service and meals will be individually plated. High-touch areas such as self-service stations will be addressed through measures ranging from replacement (such as individual servings of condiments) to increased health and safety protocols (protective barriers, sanitizer stations).

Online ordering, take-out options, and delivery services are being added to reduce volume in dine-in facilities. Staffing plans for dining facilities will be restructured to reduce the possibility of contagion between teams. Catered events will utilize pre-packaged meals for each attendee.

Screening, Testing and Contact Tracing

Screening, Testing and Contact Tracing

Updated July 7 (International and Out-of-State Students - updated information in italics)

Students

All students will be asked to complete a health screening questionnaire. They also will be required to conduct a 7-day precautionary quarantine at home before coming to campus and submit a form attesting to the quarantine. Students who have recently tested positive within 14 days prior to arriving on campus will be asked to quarantine at home for 14 days until no longer symptomatic. Students also will undergo a health screening upon arrival on campus and use a web-based health screening app daily. Testing will be available in Lauderdale Health Center for symptomatic students. Students are asked to call 585-245-5736 if experiencing respiratory or COVID-19 symptoms. Health Services will also be working closely with Livingston County Department of Health who will be providing all contact tracing.

International and Out-of-State Students

In addition to the health screening protocols that apply to all students, international students and students residing out-of-state will be required to adhere to additional guidelines.

International students who arriving into the United States prior to the start of classes are expected to adhere to CDC guidelines which currently require a 14 day quarantine. International students who have not completed this mandatory quarantine prior to arrival to campus must quarantine for 14 days. On-campus residents will be placed in our designated quarantine housing for that time frame.

Out-of-state students traveling to 足球外围app from a state designated by New York as having significant community spread must quarantine upon entry to New York for 14 days from the last travel within such designated state. Out-of-state students who have not completed this mandatory quarantine prior to arrival to campus must quarantine for 14 days. On-campus residents will be placed in our designated quarantine housing for that time frame.

The College will ensure that all classes are available to quarantining students.

Faculty and Staff

The College will encourage employees to be tested prior to returning to campus. A question about testing was added to the Employee Information and Training module which employees will need to complete as part of the return to onsite work. The data will provide a general baseline of the number of employees tested prior to their return to work.

Tracing and Monitoring After Restart

Tracing and Monitoring After Restart

Once students and staff who have completed all entry requirements are on campus, the College will employ DOH-recommended strategies for symptom/exposure-based testing. Health and Counseling Services will be able to refer members of the campus community to testing facilities as needed.

The campus will develop procedures for reducing the risk of transmission by:

  • Amending attendance requirements in courses to dissuade symptomatic students from attending classes.
  • Communicating expectations to employees: Anyone with symptoms of COVID should not come to campus until they have consulted with a medical practitioner and/or received testing. Those who test positive will quarantine for 10–14 days. Those who have come into contact with a positively tested employee will self-quarantine in accordance with DOH guidelines and monitoring procedures.
  • Communicating expectations regarding daily temperature checks before arriving on campus or attending classes.
  • Training supervisors to send symptomatic employees home with follow up to Human Resources for tracking, medical documentation, and DOH notification for contact tracing.
  • Following DOH guidance on contact tracing for contract (vendor) employees who test positive for COVID when symptomatic.
  • Exploring options for managing external visitors to campus.

Protocols for Testing Symptomatic Students

The campus currently uses Quest Lab PCR for testing. In addition, a rapid testing option through Quidel Sofia 2 SARS CoV-2 Antigen is being evaluated with SUNY. The College is exploring additional testing resource capacities with the Noyes Health-University of Rochester Medical Center and the Department of Health.

Protocols for Testing Symptomatic Employees

Current protocol requires reporting symptomatic employees to SUNY and isolating them prior to test results. Human Resources will communicate directly with the Livingston County DOH regarding positive cases; contact tracing and employee testing will be coordinated by the DOH across counties based on where the employees reside.

Protocols for Isolating COVID-positive Students Living Off Campus

Students with symptoms of or a positive test for COVID-19 who are living off campus or commuting will be expected to self-isolate. The Livingston County DOH is responsible for follow-up contact tracing and daily health check-ins. Student Health and Counseling Services will also check-in with these students and provide health guidance as needed.

Use of Online Apps for Symptom Tracking

The College has developed a web-based tool for daily employee- and student-screening to identify individual exposure and symptoms related to COVID-19. This tool will be made available soon. A paper questionnaire exists for those unable to use the web-based tool. This screening includes self-administered daily temperature checks.

Employee Training

Fifteen University Police Department officers and two Human Resources staff members have completed the Johns Hopkins training for contact tracing.

Custodial Services

Custodial Services

The College will develop a schedule for increased routine cleaning and disinfection based on the CDC/EPA guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting public spaces.

Per CDC guidelines, the College will also implement environmental design changes including modification of room layouts, seating options, floor markings, and physical barriers where appropriate. Guidelines for ventilation will follow CDC and ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers) guidelines. Updated cleaning and disinfecting processes are expected to use multiple approaches best suited to the emerging needs of each area with potential solutions to include increased use of disposable paper products and UV lighting.

Student Health and Counseling Services

Student Health and Counseling Services

  • Basic operations will focus on good hygiene practices and limiting potential exposure to the coronavirus. Lauderdale Student Health and Counseling Services will be the main center for sick visits (as well as non-sick as needed/necessary). South Village Health Services will see all non-sick visit types on a to-be-determined schedule.
  • Health Services will operate on a by-appointment basis only. Phone screening and triage will be in place for all students who call with concerns, and those who have scheduled appointments will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms. Students who have COVID-related symptoms will follow specific guidelines to avoid interacting with other patients and will be treated by a designated clinician.
  • Health Service appointments will be organized to follow physical distancing requirements and minimize interactions among patients. Waiting areas will be coordinated to ensure that there is appropriate spacing and staggered appointment start times. Masks will be available at all entry points and will be required at all times; hand sanitizers will be located throughout the building. All patient encounters will include temperature screening.
  • Counseling Services is exploring the implementation of teletherapy services in the fall. Students in immediate emotional crisis will be assessed and asked to follow the same procedures as Health Services to enter the building and meet with a triage/crisis counselor.
  • The College continues to work with external partners on supplemental medical services. Reproductive Health Services will be available on Monday and Thursday from 8-4 in Lauderdale Health Center and in S. Village Health Center on Fridays from 8-4pm. All students will also be contacted prior to their appointment to complete pre-screening. We are continuing to develop a plan with Trillium Health to provide PrEP for all students whether on campus or through telehealth.
  • The College recognizes that additional mental health and/or educational resources may be required to adequately serve students impacted by stressors related to COVID-19.
