WHAT YOU CAN DO
- We ask that all members of our community take steps to ensure that we all stay as healthy as possible, including:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid sharing dishes, glasses and utensils.
- Wash your hands often and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Especially before eating or preparing food, after going to the bathroom and after you are around someone sick.
- Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap & water are not available.
ADDITIONAL STEPS TAKEN BY
MARTIN METHODIST COLLEGE:
- We are in the process of installing alcohol-based hand cleaners in residence halls, cafeteria, dining areas, computer labs, Student Resource Center, library, Christian Life Center, Student Life House, and selected restrooms. We strongly urge employees and students to use these cleaners as needed.
- Environmental Services will be wiping down doorknobs, lab computer keyboards, handrails, and desks with an alcohol-based cleaner as a normal routine cleaning function effective immediately.
- Posters have been placed in the residence halls and academic building to affirm the actions that students are to take.
- Doctors’ notes will not be required for employees or students who stay at home with symptoms (Fever, Cough, Shortness of Breath). We want all employees to stay at home if they have a fever.
- The college will remove barriers to faculty, staff, and students staying home while ill or while taking care of an ill family member. The College will review and revise as needed, policies, such as student absenteeism and sick leave for faculty and staff, that make it difficult for student, faculty, and staff to stay home when they are ill or caring for ill family members.
- When a residential student is deemed at risk by campus health and is remaining on campus, the college will provide the following: deliver meals to the room, provide a care package (masks, thermometer, hand sanitizer, tissue), and check on the student daily.
- The College may provide alternative housing for roommates of at risk students (as determined by campus health). Student requesting this accommodation must contact Daniel McMasters, vice president for Student Affair.
- The College discourages campus visitors with Coronavirus-like symptoms from attending events until they have been cleared by their physician.
