Campus Visit Protocol (Covid-19)
Earlier this month, the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health revised their “Safer at Home Order for Control of COVID-19” (see full text link below). This revision was implemented on April 15, 2020 and is effective through May 15, 2020. To comply with this revised order, the District had to modify its site protocols for anybody on District premises.
Anybody not currently designated as Emergency Personnel, need to contact their manager before going to the District facilities. This step is required because the County Order requires the employer to conduct a symptom check before employees may enter the workspace. While symptom checks cannot be performed onsite for those employees not designated as Emergency Personnel, managers will ask the following questions before you are allowed to go campus:
- Do you have a cough?
- Do you have a fever or have you been without a fever for at least 24 hours without fever-reducing medication?
- Have you been out of the country in the last 14 days?
- Do you have shortness of breath?
- Have you experienced new loss of taste and/or smell.
- Have you been in contact with someone who has these symptoms?
Several signs have already been posted in several public entries that instructs employees not to enter the District facilities if they are experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness, including fever or cough, and to maintain Social Distancing from one another. Employees are to wear cloth face covering while on campus.
If anyone needs to go to campus, please contact your manager prior to going to District premises. The manager will collect the answers to the above stated questions and will forward to appropriate Vice President and Campus Police for final approval.
