Kent State’s Safety Principles

澳门糖果派对 continues to work for a safe return to our campuses. To ensure an outstanding and safe experience for our students, 教师, 工作人员和游客, everyone should practice daily symptom checks and the Flashes Safety Principles.

在校园: Flashes Safety Principles

1. 接种疫苗!

Beginning with the first summer session, COVID-19 vaccines, including all booster shots, are 强烈推荐 for our entire Kent State community but are no longer required. Being up to date on COVID-19 vaccines, including having all recommended booster shots, determines quarantine guidelines and can reduce risk of severe disease and hospitalization.

Flash your arm to help protect yourself and your fellow Golden Flashes against COVID-19. 疫苗 are the single most effective way to prevent COVID-19. 疫苗 are available for any student, 教师 or staff member and their spouses, domestic partners and dependents. Call the DeWeese Health Center at 330-672-2322 to schedule an appointment or use this link to schedule an appointment. 疫苗 also are available at many locations throughout the state, and can be scheduled by visiting http://gettheshot.冠状病毒.俄亥俄州.政府.

即使你感染了COVID-19, it is important to get vaccinated against it, as experts do not yet know how long you are protected from getting sick again after recovering from COVID-19. Studies have shown that vaccination provides a strong boost in protection in people who have recovered from COVID-19.

 

 

2. 戴口罩

Face coverings are required only for academic courses in classrooms, 实验室和工作室, as well as in the DeWeese Health Center, in the Child Development Center and on all PARTA buses on the Kent Campus. 还记得, being vaccinated doesn’t mean you can’t contract COVID-19, and face coverings provide an extra layer of protection against the virus.

The CDC recommends that you wear the most protective face covering that you can, that fits well and that you can wear consistently. 在这个时候, 澳门糖果派对 provides KN95 and medical-grade face coverings for Flashes, 可 picked up at various locations on our campuses.

请访问 面部覆盖 and Physical 距离准则 for more information on our face covering requirements including exceptions and how to apply for an accommodation.

 

 

3. 监测你的健康

All members of the university community should self-monitor daily for COVID-19 symptoms, 包括咳嗽, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, 发热, 发冷, 肌肉疼痛, sore throat or a new loss of taste or smell. Other less common symptoms include gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting or diarrhea.

If you have any COVID-19 symptoms, do not come to work or attend class.

Employees showing symptoms of COVID-19 should leave work immediately and 看到k medical evaluation by calling your primary care physician, contacting DeWeese Health Center at 330-672-2525 or visiting your local urgent care center. Students showing COVID-19 symptoms should isolate from others immediately and 看到k medical evaluation by calling DeWeese Health Center at 330-672-2525 or calling your primary care physician. Always call ahead before 看到king in-person medical help.

Employees and students who are diagnosed with probable or confirmed COVID-19 will be contacted by their local health department or personnel from DeWeese and will be given additional guidance and instructions.

无论是在校园里还是校外, remember to always wear a face covering if you feel sick or have been around others who were sick.

 

 

4. 进行测试!

If you are showing any COVID-19 symptoms or you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, stay home and contact the DeWeese Health Center at 330-672-2525 or your primary care physician to obtain a COVID-19 test. Please click here to review all the available testing options. Stay home and quarantine until you receive your test results from your health care provider.

The CDC and ODH recommend that people who are not up-to-date on their vaccines (vaccinated plus booster when eligible) who have a known exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 should quarantine for 5 days and be tested on day 5 after their exposure. If the test results are negative, they can leave quarantine but must wear a mask around others for the next 5 days. If at any time you develop symptoms or test positive, stay home and isolate according to the isolation guidelines for a positive test.

If you have a known exposure and you are up to date on your vaccines, you should wear a face covering around others for 10 days after your last exposure. 你应该在第5天进行测试. If you develop symptoms or have a positive test, you should stay home and isolate according to the isolation guidelines for a positive test.

For positive tests, follow the CDC guidance and isolate for 5 days. Wear a well-fitted face covering if you must be around others, including those in your own home. On day 6 if you are 发热-free and your symptoms have gotten better, you can leave isolation but must continue wearing a face covering for the next 5 days.

 

 

5. 洗你的手

Practice rigorous hand hygiene and cough etiquette. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place, 或者擤完鼻涕之后, 咳嗽或打喷嚏. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

 

 

6. 清洁和净化

University custodial staff has been systematically cleaning buildings, classrooms and offices and will continue to clean all spaces that are accessible to employees, 学生及公众人士. These spaces include but are not limited to waiting rooms, 走廊内的座位区, 会议室, restrooms and common spaces in residence halls.

In classrooms, instructors are responsible for cleaning their workspace (e.g., podium, keyboard, camera, table). Additionally, all office suites will have cleaning supplies available for employee use. If you work on the Kent Campus and do not want your office cleaned by custodial staff, then contact Todd Burdette at tburdet1@ilmovizija.com to opt out of any custodial staff cleaning.

Employees who manage reception counters will need to clean the counter/high-touch surfaces after each guest. Employees who share spaces that are not accessible to the public (e.g., 休息的房间, 复制的房间, supply rooms) are expected to sanitize contact areas in these spaces after each use.

Face coverings are required only for academic courses in classrooms, 实验室和工作室, as well as in the DeWeese Health Center, in the Child Development Center and on all PARTA buses on the Kent Campus. 还记得, being vaccinated doesn’t mean you can’t contract COVID-19, and face coverings provide an extra layer of protection against the virus.

The CDC recommends that you wear the most protective face covering that you can, that fits well and that you can wear consistently. 在这个时候, 澳门糖果派对 provides KN95 and medical-grade face coverings for Flashes. Face coverings can be picked up at various locations on our campuses.

While face covering guidelines are frequently changing, our desire for all Flashes to be considerate of one another never changes. If you encounter a situation where you are asked by someone to wear a face covering, 我们希望, 作为一个礼貌, anyone would be willing to wear a face covering to alleviate the concerns of those less comfortable around others who are not wearing face coverings and for the safety of those who for health reasons are not able to wear a face covering.

Please always make certain to carry a face covering with you. This is how Flashes take care of Flashes.
