Health, Safety & Well-Being

  • Attention Students:

    Your health and safety is the College’s top priority. Over the past week, SCC has received reports of positive cases and potential exposures associated with COVID-19. The College, along with guidance from the local health departments, is notifying these individuals of the appropriate isolation, quarantine and self-monitoring requirements.

    As SCC continues to refine and implement safety protocols and procedures based on recommendations from local, state and national health authorities, please note that both employees and students should pay close attention to how you they are feeling. Self-monitoring should be a daily practice for everyone. People with COVID-19 have experienced a wide range of symptoms, from mild to severe. Following is a daily Self-Monitoring Checklist for COVID-19 symptoms.

    Please complete this daily Self-Monitoring Checklist before attending your in-person class.

    • Do you have a fever (temperature of 100.4 F or higher) without having taken any fever-reducing medications?
    • Do you have chills?
    • Do you have a cough?
    • Do you have shortness of breath or difficulty breathing?
    • Do you have congestion or a runny nose?
    • Do you feel fatigued?
    • Do you have muscle aches?
    • Do you have a sore throat?
    • Do you have a headache?
    • Do you have a new loss of smell or taste?
    • Do you have nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or loss of appetite?
    • Have you, or anyone you have been in close contact, been diagnosed with COVID-19 or been placed in quarantine for possible contact with COVID-19?
    • Have you been asked to self-isolate or quarantine by a medical professional or a public health official?

    If you reply YES to any of the questions on the checklist, STAY HOME and contact your instructor(s).
