Coronavirus "COVID-19" Information 

The administration of Jersey College is monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation carefully. The information below contains information regarding the College's General Safeguards and Policies in relation to COVID-19, including federal and community-based information. 

General Safeguards and Policies for COVID-19 

 

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is the purpose of these Policies?

The Policies have been prepared to inform students, faculty, staff, regulatory bodies, and the general community about Jersey College's policies and procedures that are being implemented with regards to protecting our community against the spread of COVID-19. The underlying principle for these Policies is that a safe learning environment requires personal responsibility. Individuals must maintain social distancing, appropriately use personal protective equipment ("PPE") and be accountable for self-isolating. Through personal responsibility, risks can be reduced and in-person campus activity can resume.

 

What are the Fundamental Safety Principles? 

The three fundamental safety principles are: (i) Maintain Social Distancing, (ii) Use Personal Protective Equipment, and (iii) Be accountable, 

 

What are some of my responsibilities according to these Policies? 

  • Completing the Virtual Training: All students, faculty, and staff are required to complete Jersey College's virtual COVID-19 health and safety training before returning to campus. The virtual training is conducted through CANVAS.
  • Completing the COVID-19 Questionnaire: All students, faculty, staff, and visitors are required to complete a health screening assessment before entering any campus building. A new questionnaire must be completed each day that the individual will be on-site. The Questionnaire is attached to this FAQ and may be downloaded here.
  • Washing of Hands: All individuals are expected to wash their hands (i) before eating or preparing food; (ii) before touching their face;  
  • Cleaning and Disinfecting of Surfaces: All individuals are expected to clean and disinfect equipment and personal items (e.g., laptops, cellphones, pocketbooks, etc.) prior to bringing such items into a campus.
  • Monitor Health: Individuals planning to enter a campus must perform a self-screen prior to coming onsite and should not attempt to enter the campus if any of the following are present: (i) symptoms of COVID-19 (cough, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste), (ii) fever equal to or higher than 100.4 F, (iii) are under evaluation for COVID-19 (e.g., waiting for results of a viral test to confirm infection), or (iv) have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and are not yet cleared to discontinue isolation.

 

What are some reasons why I wouldn't be allowed on campus? 

  1. Answering "Yes" to any question in the COVID-19 Questionnaire,
  2. Registering a body temperature greater than 100.4 F, or
  3. Displaying COVID-19 symptoms upon check-in.

 

What types of PPE are required while I am on campus? 

  • Masks and Cloth Face Coverings: Masks or cloth face coverings are required to be worn at all times while an individual (student, faculty, staff, or guest) is on a campus. Such coverings must cover the nose, mouth, and chin.

  

Can I eat or drink inside the building?

Students may not drink or eat food in any building. Eating and drinking is permissible outside of each building (i.e., at a picnic table, under a tree, or in a car) provided that students maintain at least three (3) feet of distance and wear face coverings while not actively eating or drinking.

 

Who do I contact to: (i) ask questions about these Policies, (ii) recommend policy improvements,  or (iii) report a suspected violation of the Policies?

Recommendations or suggestions for improvements and suspected violations of the policies and procedures should be forwarded via email to CAO@jerseycollege.edu 

General Information

What is novel coronavirus?

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses. Many of them infect animals, but some coronaviruses from animals can evolve (change) into a new human coronavirus that can spread from person-to-person. This is what happened with the current novel coronavirus known as COVID-19. Diseases from coronaviruses in people typically cause mild to moderate illness, like the common cold. Some, like the SARS or MERS viruses, cause serious infections like pneumonia. The name of this new virus is SARS-CoV-2; the disease caused by this virus is known as COVID-19.

 

Where can I find up-to-date information regarding COVID-19?

The Federal Government, New Jersey and Florida all maintain robust websites dedicated to COVID-19. The websites include information including, but not limited to: (i) general information about the virus, (ii) testing information, (iii) resources for residents, (iv) travel and other restrictions, and (v) announcements.

The website maintained by the State of New Jersey is: https://covid19.nj.gov/

The website maintained by the State of Florida is: https://floridahealthcovid19.gov

The website maintained by the State of Indiana is: https://www.coronavirus.in.gov/

The website maintained by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is:  https://www.cdc.gov/COVID19

 

What preventative measures should be taken to help reduce the spread of respiratory viruses, like COVID-19?

As with other respiratory illnesses, there are steps that everyone can take daily to reduce the risk of getting sick or infecting others with circulating viruses.

  • Wash your hands frequently.
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. Help young children do the same.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Seek medical care early if you have a fever, cough or difficulty breathing and stay home if you feel unwell.
  • Maintain social distancing (At least 3 feet between you and others, where possible).
  • Limit close contact, like kissing and sharing cups or utensils, with people who are sick.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you do not have a tissue, use your sleeve (not your hands).
  • Wear a facemask or other face covering when indoors or when maintaining social distance is not feasible. 

 

What is social distancing?

Social distancing means remaining out of public places where close contact with others may occur [e.g., dormitories, schools and other classroom settings, cafeterias, shopping centers, movie theaters, stadiums, workplaces (unless the person works in an office space that allows complete distancing from others), and local public conveyances (e.g., bus, subway, taxi, ride share)] for the duration of the potential incubation period.
