Moving Ahead for
Safety & Success

CVTC is committed to moving ahead with a continued focus on our mission while providing a safe learning environment. Careful planning continues to take place to ensure our ability to safely provide education for our community and fill the talent pipeline to support economic recovery. The CVTC Ahead plan serves as a resource outlining our plan for the continuation of quality, safe learning experiences.

All upcoming courses, services, events, and activities are intended to proceed as planned. A variety of delivery options are available, and services will continue to be available in-person and via virtual options, email, and phone to meet the learning and personal needs of our students. We look forward to the fall semester and the continuation of the hands-on, real-world learning we are known for across our diverse offerings for essential industries. Please communicate with external individuals coming to our campus buildings regarding our mask policy.

 

Safety Guidelines & Practices

Mask Requirement
All individuals at CVTC facilities are required to wear cloth face coverings, regardless of vaccination status, to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Students are to provide their own mask. CVTC will not be providing masks to students other than what is normally worn in a lab.

Staff and students must always wear face masks unless in a closed room and alone. This includes wearing masks while providing instruction. Based on CDC research, face shields are not proven to provide any benefit as a source to protect others from the spray of respiratory particles. Therefore, face shields on their own are not a substitute for a cloth face covering.

We will continuously assess the metrics and guidance from the CDC, the Department of Health Services, and health departments throughout the CVTC district. Based upon transmission levels, we will adjust guidelines accordingly

Mask Accommodations
If you have a medical condition that requires accommodation, please contact Diversity Resources prior to coming to campus at 715-833-6234 or diversity@cvtc.edu.

VACCINES STRONGLY ENCOURAGED
While face coverings provide some protection against the spread of COVID-19, they are only one strategy to soften the curve.  Another layer of protection is vaccination, which continues to show their effectiveness at preventing severe illness, hospitalization, and death. If you would like to schedule a COVID vaccine, there are appointments available at several locations. Visit the CVTC Health Advisory web page to access these vaccine resources. 

Self-Health Screening
Prior to arriving on campus, all participants should self-screen their health and wellness. Do not come to campus if you are experiencing any symptoms consistent with COVID, even if you are vaccinated.

Social Distancing
Students, employees, and guests should practice social distancing, when possible, within the current configuration of space. 

Health & Hygiene
Proper health awareness and hygiene are the responsibility of all CVTC students, employees, and guests. It is expected that all individuals coming to CVTC campuses will practice the following:

  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Reporting COVID-19 Test Results & Contact Tracing

Contact tracing is being conducted by a team of CVTC contact tracers. Employees and students with COVID symptoms, COVID exposure (via close contact), and/or a positive COVID test result should complete a COVID report form. A CVTC contact tracer will be in communication with any student or employee who completes a COVID report form. If employees, managers, or students have questions, they may call CVTC’s COVID contact tracers at 715-833-6333 or covid@cvtc.edu.

We encourage everyone to be safe and get tested if you have symptoms or exposure. More information regarding quarantine protocol for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals following an exposure can be found here.

 

Exposure to COVID-19

Confirmed COVID-19 at CVTC
There are many variables when exposure occurs. In the event CVTC has a confirmed case of COVID-19 of a current employee or student, the College will work with the Department of Health Services and specific local county health departments to make determinations as to the next steps.

QUARANTINE & TESTING GUIDELINES
If you are vaccinated and have been exposed to someone testing positive for COVID-19, you are not required to be tested or quarantine unless you are experiencing symptoms.  The CDC recommends that those who have come into close contact with someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 to be tested 3-5 days after exposure, and to wear a mask in public indoor settings for 14 days or until they receive a negative test result.

If you are not vaccinated and are exposed, you are required to quarantine for 14 days or 7 days after your last close contact, with a negative test result (PCR or antigen) collected on day 6 or 7.

For more details about close contacts, quarantine, and testing, review CDC quarantine information on their website.
