FTCC Safety Protocols

 

September 10, 2020

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper has announced a statewide requirement that face coverings must be worn when people are in public places.

Fayetteville Technical Community College is observing that rule and other strict safety rules aimed at preventing the transmission of COVID-19. The College’s safety rules and practices include:

Face coverings: Any person on campus must wear a face covering when:

  • in a closed room with anyone else
  • in an indoor public area, such as a hallway or lounge, whether or not anyone else is around
  • in any outdoor area on campus where social distancing is not possible

This is a requirement, not a recommendation, and it applies to faculty, staff, students and visitors. Anyone wishing to enter an FTCC building or enclosed facility must wear a face covering. As such, anyone coming to campus, including students, should bring and wear their own face covering. For those who don’t have access to a face covering, the College has a very limited supply and may be able to provide one for use. Instructions from the CDC on making and using cloth face coverings are available on the CDC website. North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper’s office notes that face coverings can be improvised from household items such as scarves, T-shirts, sweatshirts, or towels.

Social distancing: Anyone on campus should keep at least 6 feet between themselves and any other person at all times. The College has marked off areas in labs and classrooms to ensure this separation. Students, faculty, and staff must maintain social distancing while in any hallway, except in the event of an emergency. Please be patient as maintaining social distancing may slow your ingress into and egress from buildings, labs, offices, and classrooms.

Frequent cleaning of common areas and commonly touched surfaces.

Hand sanitizer stations: The College has placed hand sanitizer stations in public spots in buildings throughout campus. People are encouraged to clean their hands frequently using hand sanitizer if hand-washing is not possible. Thorough hand-washing, using soap and water for at least 20 seconds at a time, is encouraged at regular points during the day.

Temperatures: FTCC is taking the temperature of everyone who enters a campus building. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or above will not be admitted.

The College also expects any person on campus to abide by these rules until further notice:

  • If you sneeze or cough, cover your nose and mouth and, if you use a tissue, dispose of it immediately and then wash or sanitize your hands.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home when you are sick, when your temperature is above normal or if you suspect you have been exposed to COVID-19.

Known or suspected COVID-19 infections or potential COVID-19 exposures on an FTCC campus: Any known or suspected COVID-19 infection or potential COVID-19 exposure must be reported to FTCC’s COVID-19 Coordinator. This is whether the case involves a student, a College employee or a visitor to the campus. This requirement is in place so the College can take appropriate and timely measures to safeguard everyone’s health. Reports can be made using Form C-40, available online (MS Word format).

FTCC’s COVID-19 Coordinator – the Vice President for Human Resources – may be contacted at 910-678-8373 or mitchelc@faytechcc.edu.

Procedures for anyone on an FTCC campus who is known or suspected to have COVID-19, or who has definitely or possibly been exposed to the virus: FTCC has detailed procedures that include information about how long people should remain away from campus based upon the particular situation.
