Current COVID-19 Health and Safety Protocol (as of March 2022)

RCC is transitioning to a mask-optional policy, effective Monday, 3/21/2022. Masks will no longer be required inside RCC buildings; however, all community members are welcome to wear masks if they so choose. We will continue to follow the guidance issued by public health organizations and make changes to the mask-optional policy if needed.

Know that the following COVID-19 health and safety resources remain available to all RCC faculty, staff, and students:

  • RCC purchased N95s masks for all employees and students. You can pick up a mask from the Public Safety Department (Room 3-109).
  • RCC secured At-Home COVID-19 test kits for all RCC community members. The HR Office has two test kits for each employee. You can stop by the HR suite (Building 2, 3rd floor, Suite 313) on Tuesdays from 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm or Thursdays from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm to pick up your kits.

Quarintine/return to work policy is based on updated CDC guidelines for quarantine (as of January 2022):

  • If you test positive for COVID-19, you must:
    • Alert:
      • Human Resources (if you are an RCC employee)
      • The Dean of Students (if you are an RCC student) 
    • Stay home for 5 days
    • If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving after 5 days, you can return to work or class.
    • If you have a fever, continue to stay home until your fever resolves.
  • If you are exposed to someone with COVID-19:
    • Alert:
      • Human Resources (if you aren an RCC employee)
      • The Dean of Students (if you are an RCC student)
    • Stay home for 5 days
    • Test on day 5
      • If you receive a positive test result, follow the guidelines for a positive COVID-19 test result.
      • If you receive a negative test result, return to work.
    • If you develop symptoms at any point, get a test and stay home.

RCC Employees:  If you are not experiencing symptoms during quarantine, you may be eligible to work remotely. Please plan on discussing your remote work options with your supervisor and HR.
