Safe RCC – COVID 19 Updates
To our RCC faculty, students, staff and visitors, we are committed to providing uncompromisingly academic and workforce training experiences despite the unprecedented challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. To that end, Robeson Community College (RCC), would like to share the following from the NC Department of Health and Human and The Centers for Disease Control:
· NO-COST Community Testing Event Finder
· Test Site Finder
· Steps to Take After COVID-19 Testing
· How can I help slow the spread?
· NC County Alert System and Map
· Slow COVIDNC Exposure Notification App
· Higher Education COVID-19 Resources
Keeping the RCC campus safe must be a collective effort. Therefore, all students, faculty, staff and visitors are asked to comply fully with all COVID-19 safety measures and guidelines. The college has moved forward with implementing the following measures. See the detailed RCC Safe Return to Campus Plan.
- To keep all students, faculty, staff, and visitors reduce the spread of COVID-19:
- Face coverings are required in all public locations including hallways, classrooms, labs and even outside locations where a safe distance of six feet cannot be maintained.
- COVID-19 stations have been placed in designated, high traffic areas. The stations are stocked with a limited supply of disposable masks, face shields and hand sanitizer, and should be used as needed.
- High touch areas or high traffic areas and buildings are cleaned and disinfected at regular intervals throughout the day, and a deep cleaning will occur every evening.
- Water fountains and water dispensers may be disabled to prevent the spread of the virus.
- If a positive COVID-19 case is reported or suspected, the area or building will be closed and sanitized according to CDC guidelines
- To intentionally decrease the density in buildings, promote social distancing, and reduce contact in classrooms, labs, hallways and open areas.
- Social distancing signage, visual cues, floor decals, colored tape, etc. are used to alter traffic patterns and indicate where everyone should stand or sit.
- One-way directional signage is used to increase the distance between individuals entering, exiting or passing in hallways.
- Directional signage encouraging the use of stairs rather than elevators are visible, especially when descending. Elevator capacity should be reserved for disabled persons.
- Access to common areas has been physically restricted and plexiglass shields have been installed in public-facing areas (i.e. reception desks and student support centers).
