Good Afternoon Faculty and Staff:
Last week communication was sent regarding a positive COVID exposure reported from a BCCC staff; there have been several positive exposures. We will continue to direct the staff who have come into contact and others who have been exposed to schedule a COVID test. Currently, we are following CDC (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/quarantine-isolation.html) and Baltimore City Health Department guidelines as well as the College’s exposure protocols. Please remember that everyone on the campus must wear a mask and self-monitor for symptoms; N95 masks are available on the campus and you can contact Public Safety should you need one.
Faculty and other instructional staff are expected to keep their masks on while teaching onsite/face to face (I know it is uncomfortable for some) and students are required to wear masks in the classrooms and while on the campus. As I’ve stated previously, if you have or develop symptoms, please stay home, contact your health care provider for medical evaluation and testing, and notify your respective supervisor or Cabinet member. Public Safety serves as the point of contact in each building to respond to any COVID related issues or concerns.
BCCC continues to host a CVS clinic on the campus and community members may get COVID tested on campus at no cost. The CVS on campus site is located in the South Pavilion with walk-in hours scheduled from 9:00 to 11:00am and 1:00 to 2:30pm; outside of these time you are asked to call to schedule an appointment. The lines for the on-site clinic have not been long so you may still be seen throughout the day without an appointment.
We will continue to keep the College community informed.
Stay Well and Safe.
