No, you are following health expert’s guidelines. Talk to your instructor if you’re in one of the lab classes that need to come on campus to finish assignments. They’ll work with you to make accommodations to get your lab in.

For anyyone else who is ill and taking online classes, please work with your instructor as you typically would if you’re going to miss a required on-screen synchronized interaction. Remember, all Shasta College facilities are closed to the public and students.

Anyone who has a fever, cough, or shortness of breath are being pre-screened at our front gate and are being told to stay away from campus if they have symptoms, even if the symptoms are mild. To encourage sick individuals to stay away from campus, faculty, and supervisors are encouraged to provide flexibility for students and staff, as well as minimize any penalties for absence due to sickness. If you feel concerns about the faculty member’s approach, contact your Dean or the division office for support.
