What are you doing to stop the Coronavirus from spreading?
Several measures have been put into place to keep the campus community healthy and safe, including:
- All large Shasta College events are cancelled until further notice
- Fall sports are being shifted to a spring start to best ensure the safety and health of the student-athletes, coaches, and staff involved in those programs. In limited situations, specific sports will be conducting conditioning exercises during the fall semester.
- All planned District travel, including field trips, has been suspended indefinitely.
- Enhanced cleaning protocol have been implemented at all facilities to ensure high-traffic areas like classrooms, offices, and dining areas are thoroughly disinfected
- Distribution and placement of hand and surface sanitizers throughout public facilities has been expanded
- Disinfectant wipes containing at least 70% alcohol content have been provided for staff at the front desk in the library and learning centers, for faculty in classrooms with multiple computers, and in division offices.
- Implemented physical distancing protocols which require six-feet distancing and the mandatory use of face coverings while on campus. Office spaces will be modified as needed and new foot traffic flows are indicated to enhance safety while moving around campus.
- Provided information, resources, and preventative actions to staff and students via email
- Distributed posters across campuses from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) with strategies to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases like COVID-19
We share your concerns and want to assure you that the college is actively addressing this rapidly evolving situation
Our administration and Campus Safety professionals are working closely with the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office; Shasta, Tehama, and Trinity Counties Departments of Public Health; and other public health agencies to monitor developments regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and to determine how to best maintain instruction while minimizing the risk for students, faculty, and staff.
If there is an immediate risk to the campus community, the college will notify students and employees using the emergency notification system with updates and information to protect the health and safety of the campus community.
