DCCC remains open for business during COVID-19, with employees on staggered work schedules and teleworking to promote social distancing. Fall 2020 classes are underway with a mix of in-person, hybrid and online options. Campus offices are open Monday-Friday 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Masks are required on campus; see below for other important safety reminders.
Like most large organizations, DCCC has developed a comprehensive internal process for monitoring the impact of COVID-19 on students and employees. A reporting process is in place (see below for more information and links) for members of the campus community to report their own exposures to COVID-19 and to report positive COVID-19 test results. Then, in coordination with our local health departments that guide all contact tracing efforts, there is follow-up communication with those making reports and with anyone else directly impacted by positive test results. Anyone considered a “close contact” of someone who has tested positive will be notified individually.
The large number of students taking online classes this fall, combined with a staggered work and telework schedule for employees, means that most reports of exposures or positive test results are not having a direct impact on others in the campus community; however, our internal monitoring process incorporates all of these reports, whether they involve people who have been to campus recently or not.As a large institution, our students and employees are no doubt being impacted by the high level of community spread of COVID-19 currently affecting people around our state, country, and world. It is likely that we will continue to see an increased spread of COVID-19 as colder weather approaches and people spend more time indoors. Be assured that we are deeply committed to the health and safety of our DCCC community and work daily to slow the spread of COVID-19 among students, employees, and the communities we serve. Please continue with us on our journey as we Storm Forward safe, healthy, and strong!
