BELLEVUE COLLEGE Safe Back to School Plan Updated August 31, 2020
Overview

Per Governor Inslee’s Proclamation 20-12.1 issued for Higher Education – Fall 2020, prior to recommencing higher education and workforce training programs, all schools are required to: • Adhere to all federal, state and local public health and workplace safety requirements. • Develop comprehensive plans (“Safe Back to School Plan”) based on the Campus Reopening Guide prepared by the Higher Education Reopening Work Group. The plan must meet all standards for reopening in accordance with federal, state and local health requirements (to include Safe Start proclamations and guidance), and make available a copy of these plans at each location on campus. • Follow state return to work guidance to include allowing work from home for operations able to be performed remotely. • Adhere to state and federal law for health and workplace safety during COVID-19 including state “Safe Start” guidance and State Department of Labor & Industries guidelines. • Regularly self-monitor and update the Safe Back to School Plan.

The safety and health of all students and employees is Bellevue College’s highest priority. College leadership has worked to meet or exceed all requirements issued by the Governor’s office, the State Department of Health (DOH), the Department of Labor & Industries (L&I), and Public Health Seattle & King County (PHSKC) per worksite safety. This plan addresses all requirements of State Proclamation 2012.1 and additional guidance provided in the Campus Reopening Guide. Additionally, Bellevue College will follow all guidance issued by the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries regarding workplace safety during COVID-19. Bolded content is quoted directly from the proclamation. This plan will be updated to reflect any new state or county requirements. The most recent version of the plan will be available online at www.bellevuecollege.edu/covid19/. A copy of the plan will be available at health screening stations throughout campus.

Guiding Principles 1. Protect the health and safety of every Bellevue College employee, student, and visitor.

  1. Base decisions on the best available science (University of Washington, Public Health – Seattle & King County, Washington State Department of Health, etc.).
  2. Meet all legal responsibilities (use Higher Education & Workforce Training COVID-19 Safety Requirements as the guiding document).
  3. Seek feedback from and work to address employee concerns (utilizing governance, councils, labor relations groups, and assemblies identified for this purpose).
  4. Communicate the Safe Back to School Plan with all stakeholders via multiple platforms as soon as possible.
  5. Be flexible in order to respond to changing requirements from the state and county.
    6

General Expectations
There will be a limited number of on-ground courses during Fall of 2020. The decision to hold a course on-ground will be based on program requirements and the need to have “hands-on” instruction that cannot be taught remotely.
All other courses and student and professional services will be offered through remote modalities.
A limited number of offices will provide on-campus support.
Employees whose presence on campus is not required in order to perform their jobs are encouraged to work remotely.
Roles and Responsibilities

Campus COVID-19 Supervisor BC’s Vice President for Administrative Services will serve as the college’s designated campus COVID-19 supervisor and is responsible for monitoring and updating the Safe Back to School Plan. The Executive Director of Campus Operations will serve as backup (see Appendix D for all COVID-19 responsibilities). Plan Supervisors The Provost, Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs, Associate Vice President for Student Affairs, Vice President for Human Resources, Vice President for Economic and Workforce Development, and Vice President for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion will serve as plan supervisors. Their role is to regularly review this plan and work with their staff to execute this plan. Site Supervisors Each building on campus will have a designated site supervisor. The site supervisor is responsible for working with the campus COVID-19 supervisor, the Flu Team and Public Safety to draft a building specific supplemental plan that complies with this plan and enacts measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Site supervisors are also responsible for overseeing the setup of classrooms, signage and floor markings in their building. Some buildings may require more than one site supervisor.

Employee Supervisors Supervisors will ensure direct reports receive the provided COVID-19 safety training, follow COVID-19 safety measures, and ensure employees routinely clean their workspace and shared equipment after each use. They will also be responsible for approving employee’s requests to come to campus and validating their employees completed the online health assessment every day they are on campus. Supervisors may be scheduled as health screening station personnel at health screening stations.
7

Health Screening Station Personnel Site supervisors, department supervisors, other supervisors and area staff will rotate as health screening station personnel. They are responsible for checking in students and employees as they arrive on campus for class or work, where required. Department Representative The Department Representative is responsible for ordering and storing PPE supplies and cleaning kits for their department. Employees and Students All employees and students are required to submit a daily online health assessment via the webpage prior to reporting to the campus (exception: students living on campus do not need to submit complete a daily online health assessment if they are only going in and out of student housing). Every individual on campus must do the following: • Practice physical distancing. • Wear a face mask. • Follow all instructions regarding the use, maintenance, and disposal of PPE. • Those who are sick or experiencing even mild symptoms of illness that can’t be attributed to another condition (e.g., allergies), must stay home, or go home if symptoms manifest while on campus. If symptoms develop while the employee/student is not working, the employee/student should not return to work/class until they have been evaluated by a healthcare provider. • Follow state rules and guidelines for self-quarantine. • Report any COVID-19 symptoms, test results, or close contact with a COVID-positive person to covidreporting@bellevuecollege.edu.

Visitors, Vendors, Consultants The College is limiting building access to those who are on campus for official business. All visitors who need to enter a building for official business must be signed in by a site supervisor using a paper health assessment or confirmed verbal answers to screening questions and follow the above employee requirements. The log of the visit will be maintained via health screening station digital records.
8

Safety Training and COVID-19 Education Educate students and personnel on symptom detection, sources of high risk to COVID-19, prevention measures, and leave benefits/policies (e.g., UI for employees that need to selfquarantine); following any education requirements for employers per state COVID-19 Safe Start plan.

Required Training for Students Students must complete the Safety Training and COVID-19 Education in Canvas before the first day of class. Instructors will provide any updates or changes thereafter.

Required Training for Employees BC employees must complete the Safety Training and COVID-19 Education Course before returning to the workplace and will provide the completion certificate to their supervisor. Changes and advisory notices will be communicated throughout campus by the Campus COVID-19 Supervisor or designee, as necessary. Supervisors are responsible for reinforcing training and reading notices on a regular basis.

Supplemental Training BC will provide supplemental training to employees responsible for reporting and or acting upon any notice of potential exposure or positive COVID-19 test.
9

Physical Distancing Maintain minimum physical distancing of six (6) feet whenever possible between all employees, students, and visitors. Where physical distancing cannot be maintained, implement administrative or engineering controls to minimize exposure.

Implement floor markings to promote physical distancing.

Post signs to remind students/employees of physical distancing, PPE requirements, and to use hand sanitizer.

General Physical distancing is one of the most effective methods for preventing the spread of COVID-19. BC will implement measures to ensure the six (6) foot distancing rule is maintained throughout campus. In areas where six (6) foot physical distancing is not possible, the College will provide guidance to limit contact while allowing for infrequent and intermittent passing within six (6) feet. Employees who can work from home are encouraged to do so to minimize the number of potential interactions. Potential Bottlenecks and High Traffic Areas The areas listed below have been identified as potential high-risk locations that will be addressed using a variety of methods to minimize risk. Measures may include barriers, signage and markings, furniture placement, and establishment of traffic flow patterns. Building Entrances The College will implement the following measures at each building entrance to limit the potential spread of the virus: • Health screening stations are required at the entrances for self-contained buildings with interior rooms (buildings G, K, L, N, Q, R, S, T, U, V); in legacy buildings (A, B, C, D, E) the supervisor for each area will need to establish check-in procedures. Those procedures must be written and approved by the campus COVID-19 supervisor. • Where lines are expected (interior and exterior), place floor markings to maintain spacing between people and establish traffic flow patterns. • Post health screening station personnel at each health screening station. • Post signage for all building entrances to reinforce physical distancing, PPE, etc. • Consider staggering employee work hours to minimize bottlenecks. Reception Areas • Place floor markers for physical distancing inside and outside the elevator. • Post signage. • Place plexiglass barriers for employees who meet with students/clients. Elevators • Place floor markers for physical distancing inside and outside the elevator. • Limit passengers.
10

• Post signage. Narrow Stairwells • Place floor markers to divide up versus down and establish traffic flow patterns. • Post signage. Common Areas • Post signage. • Reduce furniture to allow for adequate space between pieces. • Increase spacing between computers. Restrooms • Place floor markers inside and outside doors for line distancing. • Post signage outside: occupancy limit, masks. • Post signage inside: proper handwashing steps, safe disposal of waste. Classroom and Labs • Classroom and lab layouts adhere to physical distancing requirements. • Furniture removal and re-arrangement. • Place floor markings for traffic flow patterns. • Post signage. • Disinfect equipment after usage (see Cleaning and Disinfecting Your Facility). • Place plexiglass barriers for employees who meet with students/clients. • Schedule appointments to space customers and to avoid close contact (note: this is especially critical in shared offices). • Reduce and rearrange furniture to ensure adequate spacing. Conference Rooms and Event Spaces • Adhere to Washington State Guidance on meeting sizes and appropriate measures.

11

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Provide students and employees with PPE such as gloves, goggles, face shields, and/or masks as appropriate or required for students/employees not working alone (e.g., any public-facing job and/or those whose responsibility includes operating within physical distancing limits of six (6) feet), and shut down or suspend any activity if PPE cannot be provided. Face Masks Facial coverings are required as soon as employees, visitors or students arrive on campus and until they leave campus. This includes parking lots and garages, bus stops, pathways, grassy areas, benches, building entrances and exits, building interiors, etc. The only exception is when working alone or through an approved reasonable accommodation with HR (employees) or the Disability Resource Center (DRC) (students). The state defines “working alone” as: “Someone is considered to be working alone when they’re isolated from interaction with other people and have little or no expectation of in-person interruption. How often a worker is able to work alone throughout the day may vary.” Examples of “working alone” can be found on the state page that explains mask requirements. Students are responsible for providing their own mask for use around campus.

Distribution • Every employee will be provided one disposable mask at no cost each day they are on campus. College provided masks will meet surgical guidelines, at a minimum. • Masks and other general PPE (e.g. gloves) will be purchased by Campus Operations and distributed to employees through their respective department representative. • Students are responsible for providing their own mask; however, the College will keep stock on hand in case a student needs an emergency mask. In cases where specialized masks are required for instruction, such as in certain healthcare courses, the College will provide a mask for each class. Medical Exemptions • Employees who cannot wear masks for medical reasons should contact Vice President of Human Resources Suzette Yaezenko at suzette.yaezenko@bellevuecollege.edu or 425-5642178. • Students who cannot wear masks for medical reasons should contact BC’s Disability Resource Center Director Marisa Hackett at marisa.hackett@bellevuecollege.edu or 425564-2392.

12

Hygiene Implement and maintain frequent and adequate hand washing policies and include adequate cleaning and PPE supplies.

Use disposable gloves and other Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) where safe and applicable to prevent transmission on shared items.

Implement floor markings to promote physical distancing.

Post signs to remind students/employees of physical distancing, PPE requirements, and to use hand sanitizer.

Best Practices Use these best practices at home and on campus: • Wash hands frequently using soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. Use hand sanitizer with a minimum of 60% alcohol content if water is not available. • Wash hands before and after food prep and before eating. • Wash hands after using the restroom, coughing or sneezing, using the toilet, handling garbage, caring for sick people, and coming into contact with high-touch surfaces. • Wash hands before and after wearing a face covering. • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands. • Avoid contact with people who are sick. Stay home if you are sick. • Cover your mouth and nose with your elbow or tissue when coughing or sneezing. Immediately dispose of used tissue in garbage can. Posters The College will place posters in classrooms and other visible locations to remind students and employees about the importance of proper hygiene. Public Announcement The College will use BC FYI, e-mail and social media to remind people to wear masks and maintain social distancing regularly. BC alerts can be used for time critical or emergency notifications. Supplies BC will distribute cleaning kits around campus, based on requests from department representatives. Each kit contains a caddy, paper towels, gloves, ECOLAB Peroxide Multi Surface Cleaner and Disinfectant spray, and hand sanitizer (see Appendix I for more information). Departments are to use the Request Center under Campus Operations – Custodial Services to request additional supplies. Soap and running water are available in every restroom. Soap will be checked daily and replenished by campus custodial staff as often as needed.
13

Departments will determine the need for cleaning kits and hand sanitizers in classrooms and office areas and place them appropriately. Cleaning and Disinfecting Implement and maintain adequate sanitization of high-touch surfaces and shared resources (e.g., doorknobs, elevators, vending machines, points of sales). The College supports the practice of, “If you touch it, then you disinfect it.” • All classrooms, public restrooms, and common areas in use (including upholstered furniture) will be cleaned and disinfected daily by custodians. • Custodians will clean interior and exterior high-touch areas such as door handles, railings, counters, and public restrooms. • Each classroom where instruction is occurring will be equipped with a cleaning kit. Employees and students will be responsible for using the supplies to clean equipment they touch (e.g., keyboard, instructional equipment, etc.) before leaving the area. Common spaces and office suites will be equipped with a cleaning kit. Employees will be responsible for cleaning equipment they use in their personal work areas and in common areas (e.g. microwave, sink, etc.). This includes surfaces in breakrooms and meeting rooms such as: o Tables o Hard-backed chairs o Doorknobs o Light switches o Telephones o Personal workstations o Countertops o Sinks and faucets o Tools and equipment o Microwaves o Keyboards o Steering wheel, seatbelt, and car door handles in college vehicles Health and Symptom Monitoring Require that students and employees stay home and seek medical or local public health guidance if they are experiencing any known symptoms and to remain isolated until diagnosis and next steps are clear.

Require that students and employees self-quarantine or isolate per local public health guidelines if they are confirmed to have COVID-19 or have been exposed to confirmed case.

Refer to guidance from the Washington State Department of Health.

14

Implement and maintain a self-certification program through which students and employees are asked to self-certify that they have experienced no COVID-19 symptoms since their last visit to campus facility.

Follow state guidelines for logging onsite employees by, to the extent feasible, implementing a program to log students, employees, and visitors.

Designate specific spaces for isolating campus employees who live on campus and/or residential students as needed (e.g., specific building campus employees and/or students can quarantine in).

Daily Online Health Assessment BC employees and students must complete a daily online health assessment every day they come to campus (exception: students living on campus do not need to complete a daily online health assessment if they are only going in and out of student housing). Employees that do not have access to the online health assessment from home should complete it immediately upon arriving to campus each day by using a college computer. Those who are sick or experiencing even mild symptoms of illness that can’t be attributed to another condition (e.g., allergies), must stay home, or go home if symptoms manifest while on campus. If symptoms develop while the employee/student is not working, the employee/student should not return to work/class until they have been evaluated by a healthcare provider. Symptoms/situations include: • A fever (100.4F or higher), or sense having a fever. • A new cough that you cannot attribute to another health condition. • A new shortness of breath that you cannot attribute to another health condition. • A new sore throat that you cannot attribute to another health condition. • New muscle aches (myalgias) that you cannot attribute to another health condition, or that may have been caused by a specific activity (such as physical exercise). • A headache that you cannot attribute to another health condition. • A new loss of taste or smell that you cannot attribute to another health condition. • A positive test for COVID-19 in last 14 days. • You or a member of your household has been advised to self-quarantine for confirmed or suspected COVID-19 in the last 14 days. • You or a member of your household has been caring for a person with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 in the last 14 days. Supervisors will conduct a daily verbal check with employees on campus to ensure they completed the online health assessment before arriving on campus. The online health assessment data will be maintained in a confidential, online format that can only be accessed by designated College personnel.

Health Screening Stations Health screening stations will be established and staffed in all buildings where students or visitors are present or in areas/buildings where there are frequent interactions or physical distancing can’t be easily maintained. Classes will be scheduled in enclosed buildings with interior entrances first (L, N, R, S, T, V)
15

to provide better access control and to ensure students and employees arriving on campus for class can proceed through a health screening station. As the campus expands and opens more, the College may consider establishing central health screening stations for exterior access buildings (A, B, C, D, and E), which would alleviate the need for health screening stations at all the offices/classes that have exterior entrances in those buildings. For self-contained buildings with interior rooms (i.e. G, K, L, N, Q, R, S, T, U and V) health screening stations will be established at every entrance deemed “open” by the site supervisor. It is recommended that entrances be limited to as few as possible for each building. Building entrances and health screening stations should be laid out in each individual building supplemental plan. Where health screening stations are established, each station will be staffed during regular hours of operation (listed in the building supplemental plan) by health screening station personnel with a mask. Face shields and gloves are optional. Health screening stations will have a plexiglass screen to separate the screening personnel from the individual(s) being screened. The station will have a copy of this plan and the building specific plan. In addition, health screening stations will all have cleaning supplies, hand sanitizer, a touch-free thermometer and extra masks. Health screening station personnel will verify that everyone entering the building has completed an online health assessment and take their temperature prior to entering. Individuals whose temperature is above 100.4 degrees will be asked to leave campus immediately. Procedures for Sick Employees or Students If an employee or student becomes ill with any of the symptoms listed above while on campus or at home, they should take the following steps: • Report it using the COVID-19 Report Form located at Report Concerns. The identity of the reporting person will be kept confidential. • Contact their supervisor (employees) or instructor (students). • Go home and isolate. • Get tested or contact a health care provider and follow instructions.

If an employee/student is confirmed to have a COVID-19 infection, BC will initiate the Protocols for a Suspected COVID-19 Case on Campus (Appendix I). BC will inform relevant employees/students of their possible exposure to COVID-19 in the workplace while maintaining confidentiality as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). BC will instruct potentially exposed employees how to proceed based on the CDC Public Health Recommendations for Community-Related Exposure. The College will also follow Clery Act Guidelines and local policies/procedures when determining whether an all-campus notification is required.

Student Housing BC has a separate prevention and mitigation plan for student housing. It includes information on all the steps Housing is taking to limit the spread of the virus while still providing housing for the students who live on campus.
16

Campus Response

Develop response protocols for students, employees, and visitors reporting symptoms and/or are confirmed to have COVID-19.
Provide contact information to all students/employees to report concerns and/or potential violations of the Safe Back to School Plan.

College Response to a Report of Suspected COVID-19 Case on Campus BC may receive notice of a suspected case of COVID-19 though several channels including, but not limited to: • a direct communication from a BC community member to a supervisor or instructor; • an online health screening; • an email to COVIDreporting@bellevuecollege.edu; • a COVID-19 Report Form; or • a communication from a department of public health. In the event BC receives a report, the College will implement the BC Protocols for a Suspected COVID-19 Case on Campus (Appendix I). Upon receipt of a report, a BC COVID-19 intake designee will contact the student or employee to: • Review the report. • Confirm any locations visited on campus. • Confirm possible contacts on campus starting two days before symptoms began and through the day they were last on campus. • Confirm testing status. • Direct the student or employee to stay home and isolate and contact a health care provider. In the event of known COVID-19 cases or suspected exposure on campus, BC will take the following steps in conjunction with Public Health – Seattle and King County (PHSKC) or another appropriate agency. • Convene a COVID-19 Incident Response Team (CIRT) as described in the BC Protocols for a Possible COVID-19 Case (Appendix I). • Report the case or exposure to PHSKC. • Coordinate cleaning/closure response as directed by PHSKC. • Provide PHSKC or contact tracing agency with relevant information collected via the online health assessment or covidreporting@bellevuecollege.edu (as requested). • PHSKC or another agency will perform contact tracing. If an agency is not available to perform contact tracing, the college/campus will contact individuals at risk as identified through the online health assessment. • The identity of sick or exposed individuals will not be publicly disclosed. It remains confidential to BC employees charged with leading the response and the PHSKC.
17

Employee Assistance BC Human Resources (HR) provides resources for employees. Employees should work with HR to: • Discuss leave options. • Discuss guidance and protections for high-risk employees. Employees may need to provide medical documentation to HR upon request. Campus Infrastructure Drinking Fountains Drinking fountains will be turned off to eliminate the possibility of spreading the virus through surface contact. Signs will be posted near drinking fountains to alert individuals that the fountain is shut off. Touchless water bottle filling stations will not be shut off. However, drinking fountains that use the same piping as the touchless water bottle filling stations will be covered and signs will be posted nearby to notify individuals that the water bottle station is active, but the drinking fountain shouldn’t be used. Touchless water bottle filling stations can be found at the following locations: • S building (3 stations with one on each floor) • T building (3 stations with one on each floor) • H building (1 station) • G building (2 stations) • C building (2 stations) • A building (1 station) • N building (1 station) • U building (4 stations) • B building (2 stations) Images of the hand-free water bottle refilling stations can be seen below.

18

Air Handling Systems While the science on air handling systems and COVID-19 is not yet proven, the College will take measures to potentially reduce the risk of spreading the virus. Air handling systems will be maintained and adjusted on a regular basis to limit the potential spread of COVID-19. The College will install upgraded MERV 13 filters in buildings that are in use on a daily basis, starting with the following buildings: • T Building • K Building • Finance in N Building • A110 IT area • Public Safety offices in D Building • Payroll areas in A Building • North Campus V Building As more buildings are brought online over time, they will also be equipped with the upgraded MERV 13 filters. Additionally, in buildings that use less than 100% outside air for heating and cooling, the College will increase the outside air percentage to provide additional dilution to the air within the building. Records Retention Any records associated with this plan will be maintained in accordance with state and SBCTC records retention guidelines. Data from online Health Assessments will be maintained for sixty days from the date of submission. After sixty days, the records will be destroyed unless otherwise required by law.

Appendices Appendix A: Sample Supplemental Building Plan

BC T Building Usage Plan WA State Higher Ed Reopening: Instruction during COVID-19 Health Sciences Simulation/Skills Labs Revised on DATE The following document outlines processes for social distancing and safety in on-campus laboratory and simulation courses at Bellevue College. Processes are based on health and safety requirements in Proclamation 20-12.11. Safety and Social Distancing Classification Before any laboratory activity (e.g., instruction, practice, simulation, assessment, competency) can occur with students on campus, programs must organize each activity according to the following classification (“class”) scheme and prepare to perform activities using social distancing where possible and with appropriate PPE and other safety measures outlined here and in accordance with standards for the individual profession or field. Class Description of Activity I Activities that students may practice at home (e.g., stethoscope competency, basic vital signs, surgical gowning/gloving). Encourage students to practice these skills at home, where possible, to avoid close contact on campus. II Activities that are possible with social distancing and no modification. III Activities that are possible with social distancing and modification (e.g., performance on manikins and/or other training devices as opposed to individuals). IV Activities that are not possible with social distancing (i.e., contact closer than six (6) feet must occur).

Note: Please consider the feasibility of modification (e.g., space, equipment, supplies, faculty, and timeframe) in view of accreditation standards and advisory committee member recommendations as needed. On-Campus Simulation/Skills Lab Process The T building entry point is the SE entrance accessed by ramp from parking lots 6 (employee) and 8 (student). Lab Check-in Process Students and employees should complete an online Health Screening Questionnaire the morning of the day they are scheduled to come to campus for lab. Students and employees who have symptoms of
1 Governor’s Proclamation 20-12.1

20

illness should stay home and not come to campus. Students and employees should plan to arrive 30 minutes prior to scheduled class time to have their temperature taken2 and screen into the building. Signage will indicate six (6) -foot distance for students to wait for health screening. One student at a time will be screened.

Lab Workflow Process Labs should have designated Pre-entry, Entry, Main Lab, Debriefing, and Exit Areas. Pre-entry Area: • An area is set aside for health screening and temperature scanning. The T Building entry point is at the SE entrance accessed by ramp from parking lots 6 (employee) and 8 and 10 (student). • Employees doing health screening should use appropriate PPE (e.g., eye protection, face covering) and contact precautions. • Disposable face coverings will be provided upon entering the Pre-entry Area. Surgical masks are required for activities that take place closer than six (6) feet apart. KN-95 masks are required for activities that involve potential exposure to body fluids, e.g., phlebotomy. Students/faculty/staff members may choose to wear a personal mask to campus if they wish.3 • Each student and employee will verbally respond to the health screening questions (Did you complete a health assessment form? Yes/No), followed by a temperature scan. Touchless thermometers will be used. Entry Area: • An area near the entrance to the lab should be designated for hand washing and donning of additional PPE as necessary. Additional PPE will vary depending on lab activities for the day. o The large restrooms are the designated hand washing locations for each floor: T115 and T116 on first floor; T210 and T211 on second floor; T310 and T311 on third floor. o Public safety note: first floor restrooms will be kept locked unless classes are taking place on first floor, which will be occasional and communicated at least 24 hours in advance. • A minimum 20-second hand wash using DOH/CDC guidelines4 should be completed.

Appendix D: COVID-19 Responsibilities

Campus COVID-19 Supervisor BC’s Vice President for Administrative Services will serve as the college’s designated campus COVID-19 supervisor and is responsible for monitoring and updating the Safe Back to School Plan. The Executive Director of Campus Operations will serve as back up. Plan Supervisors The Provost, Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs, Associate Vice President for Student Affairs, Vice President for Human Resources, Vice President for Economic and Workforce Development, and Vice President for Equity and Inclusion will serve as plan supervisors. Their role is to regularly review this plan and work with their staff to execute this plan. Site Supervisors Each building on campus will have a designated site supervisor. The site supervisor is responsible for working with the campus COVID-19 supervisor, the Flu Team and Public Safety to draft a building specific supplemental plan that complies with this plan and enacts measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Site supervisors are also responsible for overseeing the setup of classrooms, signage and floor markings in their building. Some buildings may require more than one site supervisor.

Employee Supervisors Supervisors will ensure direct reports receive the provided COVID-19 safety training, follow COVID-19 safety measures, and ensure employees routinely clean their workspace and shared equipment after each use. They will also be responsible for approving employee’s requests to come to campus and validating their employees completed the online health assessment every day they are on campus. Supervisors may be scheduled as health screening station personnel at health screening stations.

Health Screening Station Personnel Site supervisors, department supervisors, employee supervisors and area staff may rotate as health screening station personnel. They are responsible for checking in students and employees as they arrive on campus for class or work, when required. Department Representative Person responsible within each department for ordering and storing PPE supplies and cleaning kits for the department.

27

Appendix E: Health Assessment Information

BC will use an online health assessment form to collect health assessments to provide information to custodial for disinfecting the campus and conduct contact tracing in the event of a confirmed case of COVID-19 on campus.

What information does the online health assessment collect? The online assessment captures information such as the date, approximate times, and specific location (buildings and rooms) of your visit. This will be provided to Public Safety and the custodial team so they can secure and disinfect our buildings each day (note: Public Safety and custodial teams will not be provided the individual’s name or any health information, only the date and location visited). The online health assessment contains a list of potential COVID-19 symptoms. Upon finishing the assessment and clicking the “Submit” button, you will receive instructions on what to do, based upon the answers provided and how those answers intersect with guidance from state and local health authorities. How does the online health assessment work? The assessment requires a campus log-in so only employees and students can access it. Health response data will be kept confidential. Employee responses will be stored in a secure database accessible only by Human Resources staff. Supervisors will be able to see if an employee completed a daily online health assessment, but supervisors will not be able to see answers to the specific health questions. Student responses will be stored in a secure database accessible only by the Associate Vice President for Student Affairs and a Co-Chair of the CARE Team. Instructors will be able to see if a student completed a daily on-line health assessment, but instructors will not be able to see answers to the specific health questions. How will the data be used? The data will be housed securely in a BC server. It will be used by a small group of people to initiate contact tracing should an employee or student test positive for COVID-19. Additionally, it will provide information to Campus Safety so they can ensure buildings are secured each night and to custodial, so they know which areas to disinfect every day.

28

Appendix F: Pertinent COVID-19 Guidelines

Avoid non-essential travel by College employees and self-quarantine per local public health and worker safety guidelines after any high-risk travel as defined by the CDC (e.g., international travel) Follow state reopening guidelines for travel.

Travel Originally announced in the acting President’s e-mail dated March 24, 2020, all travel for college-related business is cancelled until further notice. Employees having a critical need to travel for official college business must receive approval from their respective AVP/VP prior to traveling (an email with an approval statement from the AVP/VP should be attached to the travel requisition).

Face Masks The state mandated that Washington employers must ensure employees wear face masks while on the job. Everyone on campus is required to wear a mask from the moment they step on campus until they leave. The only exception is when working alone or through an approved reasonable accommodation with HR. The state defines “working alone” as: “Someone is considered to be working alone when they’re isolated from interaction with other people and have little or no expectation of in-person interruption. How often a worker is able to work alone throughout the day may vary.” Examples of “working alone” can be found on the state page that explains mask requirements.

Role and Responsibilities

Campus COVID-19 Supervisor

BC’s Vice President for Administrative Services will serve as the college’s designated campus COVID-19 supervisor and is responsible for monitoring and updating the Safe Back to School Plan.

Site Supervisor

The Food Service Director is the designated site supervisor for the Food Service Pizza Café. The COVID-19 site supervisor is responsible for working with the campus COVID-19 supervisor, the Flu Team and Public Safety to comply with the Safe Back to School Plan and enact measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.  The site supervisor is responsible for overseeing the setup of the Pizza Cafe, signage, and floor markings for the Pizza Cafe. They are also responsible for overseeing the set-up of the Health Screening Station for the Pizza Cafe, coordinating with the Housing Department and enforcing the COVID-19 job site safety plan.

Employee Supervisor

The Assistant Director of Food Services is the designated employee supervisor for the Pizza Café. The employee supervisor will ensure direct reports receive the provided COVID-19 safety training, follow COVID-19 safety measures, and routinely clean their workspace and shared equipment after each use. They will maintain housekeeping schedules which will include frequent cleaning and sanitizing of commonly touched surfaces. Supervisors are responsible for approving employee’s requests to come to campus and validating their employees complete the online health assessment every day they are on campus.  Supervisors may be scheduled as health screening station personnel at health screening stations.  

Health Screening Station Personnel

Site supervisors, department supervisors, other supervisors and area staff will rotate as health screening station personnel. They are responsible for checking in customers and employees as they enter the Pizza Cafe area.

Department Representative

The Director of Food Services and Events is the department representative responsible for ordering and storing PPE supplies and cleaning kits for the department.

Employees and Students

All employees and students are required to submit a daily online health assessment via the webpage prior to reporting to the campus (exception: students living on campus do not need to complete a daily online health assessment if they are only going in and out of student housing).

Every Food Service and Events employee working on campus and customers visiting food services must do the following:

  • Employees and customers must maintain minimum six-foot separation in all interactions by minimizing staff and customer traffic.  When physical distancing is not possible, barriers will be in place (registers and customer service counters). 
  • [3]
  • Follow all instructions regarding the use, maintenance, and disposal of PPE.
  • Those who are sick or experiencing even mild symptoms of illness that can’t be attributed to another condition (e.g., allergies), must stay home, or go home if symptoms manifest while on campus. If symptoms develop while the employee/student is not working, the employee/student should not return to work/class until they have been evaluated by a healthcare provider.
  • Employees must follow state rules and guidelines for self-quarantine.
  • All employees are required to wash hands at the start and end of each shift and break. Additionally, the Pizza Café requires hourly hand washing or sanitation by employees.
  • Report any COVID-19 symptoms, test results, or close contact with a COVID-positive person to covidreporting@bellevuecollege.edu.
  • Breaks and work shifts will be staggered.
  • Regularly-scheduled employees who need a reasonable accommodation for any of the requirements in this document should contact HR.

Customers, Vendors, Consultants

The College is limiting building access to those who are on campus for official business; however, customers may enter the Pizza Cafe area to purchase food and drink items. All visitors who need to enter a building for official business must be signed in by a site supervisor using a paper health assessment or confirmed verbal answers to screening questions and follow the above employee requirements. The log of the visit will be maintained via health screening station digital records.

Signs will be posted at all entrances requiring all customers to wear a mask and if they have symptoms they should not enter.

Education and Training

The employer is responsible for educating workers about coronavirus and how to prevent transmission. Employees are responsible for completing the Safety Training and COVID-19 Campus Training[4] before returning to the workplace and providing the completion certificate to their supervisor. Employees are responsible for reading and agreeing to follow Bellevue College COVID-19 policies before returning to the workplace.

Pizza Café Safety and Health Requirements

Before any activity (e.g., instruction, practice, assessment) or service (e.g. transactions) can occur with students on campus, programs must organize and prepare to perform activities using social distancing where possible and with appropriate PPE and other safety measures outlined here and in accordance with standards for the individual profession or field. The Pizza Café will adhere to all measures established by the Governor’s guidance, the Department of Labor & Industries (L&I) Coronavirus (COVID19) Prevention: General Requirements and Prevention Ideas for Workplaces, and the Washington State Department of Health Workplace and Employer Resources & Recommendations (DOH).

Safety and Social Distancing

Physical distancing is one of the most effective methods for preventing the spread of COVID-19. Food Services will implement measures to ensure the six (6) foot distancing rule is maintained throughout the Pizza Cafe. Distance markers will be placed throughout Pizza Café, at the register, and near the vending areas to assure minimum six-foot physical distancing requirements are maintained.

Lobby Area

May want to consider need for PC involvement. BCAHE did not like in original T-building plan.  [LN1] [LN1] [LN1]

I thought they didn’t want their employees to be involved in policing students, etc.  I think they might be okay with approving employee requests to come to campus.   [DC2] [DC2]

I will check with BCAHE [SM3]

I have changed it to Dean, since deans are the supervisors not program chairs [SY4]

There were visitors in R on the evening of 10/16 [SM5]

Public Safety informed us that the visitors would be here Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  Should we include information regarding weekend events since this building has them? [SY6]

The DRC support person might be a contractor, so might not be able to complete the online health assessment. A DRC employee could, but an off-campus ASL interpreter could not. [LN7] [LN7]

 [MK8]Hopefully we can launch the visitor OHA by winter – I can copy the link in once it is live.

this did not happen with the visitors 10/16 – 10/18 [SY9]

there is currently no plexi glass barriers in the reception areas within the R building.  This will be needed prior to opening. [SY10]

Can we block an elevator? Is that an ADA problem? (I don’t have any idea, but what if an employee in a wheelchair or on crutches needed to access second floor) [LN11] [LN11]

 [MK12]“elevator access will be restricted” ??

Another draft option from U blg: For the initial opening of the U-Building, all services will be limited to the first-floor.

When services expand to other floors, U-Building staff will place floor markers for physical distancing inside and outside the elevator. U-Building staff will post signage to limit passengers.

I think we should just elim this sentence. [DC13]

this may violate fire code (if blocked) [SM14]

Can we block a stairwell? Is that fire risk?  [LN15] [LN15] [LN15]

There might be faculty visiting their offices upstairs, so blocking the stairwell and elevator closes off any access to offices upstairs. [EN16] [EN16] [EN16]

see my change.  Does that work? [DC17]

 [18]I think this is fine, Dennis.  As the ELI program is only looking to bring students to campus on three specific dates, I can notify the rest of the faculty/staff that on those days the rest of the building will have limited access to the third floor.  That should not provide any burden at this point. As we expand the use of the building, we can provide expanded protocols for access upstairs.

Who will gather/verify access info for the building? [SM19]

After hours access? Verification with R Building Supervisor? [SM20]

How will this occur if the screening station is in the main lobby? [SM21]

should this be “sections”? [DC22]

 [MK23]To confirm, the classes below will be the same 8-10 students in a cohort?

seems a bit much to have to put on gloves every time you handle a pen.  Maybe have a “clean” cup and a “used” cup and just put on gloves when grabbing the “used” pens to clean them? [DC24]

Both the ‘clean’ and ‘used’ pen as well as the glove protocol for handling/cleaning would seem appropriate [SM25]

same as above… [DC26]

Is there a DOH or CDC guideline for sanitizing supplies? [SM27]

Tribble should have a map.  Or Christopher Butler [DC28]

BC Athletics Return to Rent Guidelines for External Use of Athletic Facilities

Revised on October 16, 2020

The safety and health of all students, employees and customers is Bellevue College’s highest priority. The following document outlines processes for physical distancing and safety in external group rental operations at Bellevue College. Processes are based on health and safety requirements in Proclamation 20-12.1[1] and the Professional Sports & Other Sporting Activities COVID-19 Requirements.[2]

During the world wide pandemic caused by the ‘novel coronavirus’ (COVID-19) and the ‘Safe Start Washington’ order, by the governor Jay Inslee, the Bellevue College Athletics department affirms its continued commitment to maintaining an operational college environment and to provide environmental stewardship while ensuring the safety of our staff, students, and customers. 

Continuing operations during this pandemic requires new levels of individual social distancing, cleaning, and disinfecting communal areas, handwashing and use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Bellevue College Athletics will follow the plan created by Bellevue College Safe Back to School Plan[3] for all Athletic Department employees in their return to work.

All external groups must adhere to the rules laid out by the Professional Sports & Other Sporting Activities COVID-19 Requirements (Appendix B) as well as the Bellevue College Return to Rent Guidelines as outlined in this document. Bellevue College must be provided with the group specific adopted written procedure for employee safety and customer interaction by any group that would like to be considered for usage of the BC Athletic Facilities. This must be at least as strict as this procedure and follow the safety and health requirements, including recreation-specific guidance as explained in the Professional Sports & Other Sporting Activities COVID-19 Requirements as well as the Bellevue College Return to Play Guidelines.

Bellevue College has the right to end any event that does not follow the requirements in the Safe Start Washington plan, Professional Sports & Other Sporting Activities COVID-19 Requirements Guide, the Bellevue College Safe Back to School Plan, the Bellevue College Return to Play Guidelines, and any event that does not follow the written procedure of the specific group renting the BC Athletic Facilities.

A.           COVID-19 ASSUMPTION OF RISK

I understand that my participation in program activities may involve foreseeable as well as unforeseeable risks to my health or safety (including death), or the health and safety of others, as a result of the worldwide spread of the novel coronavirus known as COVID-19.

COVID-19 is highly contagious and is spread by coming into personal contact with others or using shared facilities and equipment. Participating may increase the risk of contracting the disease or spreading it to others, including employees of the facility, team staff members, teammates, family, and friends. Any participant may be unknowingly carrying the disease and capable of infecting others without experiencing any symptoms.

COVID-19 is described by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as a mild to very severe respiratory illness that can result in hospitalization, respiratory or organ failure, exacerbation of underlying health conditions such as diabetes or heart or lung disease, and death. The risks of exposure can also include, but are not limited to, quarantine, social isolation and stress, medical and other expenses, loss of work and income, and disruption of educational studies. For information about COVID-19, including symptoms and prevention, visit the CDC website at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019.

I understand and agree that it is my responsibility to follow Federal, State, and College guidelines or directives relating to my participation, including any guidelines or directives relating to social distancing, proper hygiene and handwashing practices, and the use of personal protective equipment (PPE).

T Building Usage Plan with S Building Annex[SY1] 

WA State Higher Ed Reopening: Instruction during COVID-19

Health Sciences & Sciences Simulation/Skills Labs

Revised September 24, 2020

The following document outlines processes for social distancing and safety in on-campus laboratory and simulation courses at Bellevue College. Processes are based on health and safety requirements in Proclamation 20-12.1 [1]

Safety and Social Distancing Classification

Before any laboratory activity (e.g., instruction, practice, simulation, assessment, competency) can occur with students on campus, programs must organize each activity according to the following classification scheme and prepare to perform activities using social distancing where possible and with appropriate PPE and other safety measures outlined here and in accordance with standards for the individual profession or field. 

Class

Definition of Activity

I

Activities that students may practice at home (e.g., stethoscope competency, basic vital signs, surgical gowning/gloving)

Encourage students to practice these skills at home, where possible, to avoid close contact on campus.

II

Activities that are possible with social distancing and no modification

III

Activities that are possible with social distancing and modification (e.g., performance on manikins and/or other training devices as opposed to individuals)

IV

Activities that are not possible with social distancing (i.e., contact closer than 6 feet must occur)

Note: Please consider the feasibility of modification (e.g., space, equipment, supplies, faculty, timeframe) in view of accreditation standards and advisory committee member

recommendations as needed.

On-Campus Simulation/Skills Lab Process

The T-Building and S-Building entry point is the SE T-Building entrance accessed by ramp from parking lots 6 (employee) and 8 (student).

Lab Check-in Process  

Students and employees should complete an online Health Screening Questionnaire[2] the morning of the day they are scheduled to come to campus for lab. Students and employees who have symptoms of illness should stay home and not come to campus. Students and employees should plan to arrive 30 minutes prior to scheduled class time to have their temperature taken[3] and screen into the building. Signage will indicate 6-foot distance for students to wait for health screening. One student at a time will be screened.

Lab Workflow Process

Labs should have designated Pre-entry, Entry, Main Lab, Debriefing, and Exit Areas.  

Pre-entry Area:

  • An area near a building entrance is set aside for temperature scanning. The T-Building entry point is at the SE entrance accessed by ramp from parking lots 6 (employee) and 8 and 10 (student). Students with labs in S Building will screen in through the T-Building entry point.
  • Employee doing health screening should use appropriate PPE (e.g., eye protection, face covering) and contact precautions.
  • Disposable face coverings will be provided upon entering the Pre-entry Area. Surgical masks are required for activities that take place closer than 6-feet apart. KN-95 masks are required for activities that involve potential exposure to body fluids, e.g. phlebotomy. Students/faculty/staff members may choose to wear a personal mask to campus if they wish.[4]
  • Each student/faculty/staff member will verbally respond to the health screening question (did you complete a health screening form y/n), followed by a temperature scan.  Touchless thermometers will be used.

Entry Area:

  • An area near the entrance to the lab should be designated for hand washing and donning of additional PPE as necessary. Additional PPE will vary depending on lab activities for the day.
  • The large restrooms are the designated hand washing locations for each floor: T115 and T116 on first floor; T210 and T211 on second floor; T310 and T311 on third floor.  
    • In S Building, the designated hand-washing stations are the large restrooms on the first floor: S104 and S105.      
    • Public safety note: first floor T-Building restrooms will be kept locked unless classes are taking place on first floor, which will be occasional and communicated at least 24 hours in advance. Second and third-floor S-Building restrooms will be locked to reduce potential sites for exposure / cleaning.
  • A minimum 20-second hand wash using DOH/CDC guidelines[5] should be completed.
  • All appropriate attire and PPE should be donned prior to entering the lab.  PPE requirements are based on DOH/OSHA guidelines for medium exposure risk.[6]
  • Gloves: required for some labs, dispensed as needed.
  • Eye protection: required for some labs, dispensed as needed.
  • Isolation gowns: specific skills where these are commonly used students/faculty/staff members.

Main Lab Area:

  • The main lab area should be designated for lab-related activities only and include the following features.
    • Individual student designated areas outlined with industrial floor tape[7] that always provides a minimum of 6 feet between students
    • Designated areas for students to sit, stand, or otherwise wait for their turn
    • Curtains/dividers between areas when possible
    • Increased air movement through ventilation system and/or placement of fans as recommended by the DOH[8]
    • Instruments, equipment, and/or supplies required for lab activities organized in individual student areas without the need for students to leave the main lab area and/or access supply closets or cabinets
  • Class I-III lab activities (see above) will be done using social distancing and with related modification as necessary. 
  • Class IV lab activities (see above) will be done only when there is no other way for the student to gain or demonstrate competency in a skill, e.g., live blood draw, echocardiographic image acquisition.

Debriefing Area:

  • Individual student designated areas in lab will be used for debriefing when possible.
  • If the lab space does not facilitate debriefing with social distancing, an alternative classroom where students can be 6 feet apart may be used.

Exit Area:

  • An area should be designated for students to remove disposable PPE and wash their hands.  Face coverings should be left on until students are no longer in any public space.
  • An open garbage container should be provided for disposable PPE and disposable supplies used during the lab activity.

Additional Information

The following additional information may be applicable to skills/simulation labs.

Lockers:

  • Students are encouraged not to bring items with them that cannot be kept on their person during lab.  If needed lockers are available for storage of items prior to entering the main lab area.  Items can be removed after completing/exiting the lab.  BC faculty and staff are not responsible for items left in lockers or other areas.

Restroom Use:

  • Students may leave lab to use the restroom. Masks and eye protection, if currently worn, should be retained.
    • Upon returning to lab, students will enter through the designated area. Additional PPE, such as gloves if required by the work being done, will be re-donned.

Break/Lunchroom Use:

  • Lab/simulation activities will be scheduled as needed to accommodate program and course learning outcomes.  Schedules may not allow time for breaks or lunches. 
    • As needed or permitted, breaks should be taken following the procedures for entry and exit from the Main Lab Area.
    • No student break or lunch area inside the lab will be provided. Students are encouraged to take breaks in private areas such as a car, or socially distanced in the large lounge areas, which are set up for social distancing.

Rescheduled Lab Days:

  • Specific dates and times for rescheduled labs will be established by each program and communicated to students via Canvas.
  • Students must complete rescheduled labs per course, program, and/or college policies.
  • An incomplete or failing grade may be issued to students who do not complete rescheduled labs per course, program, and/or college policies.

Standard Cleaning/Safety Preparation:[9]

The following applies to daily use of spaces. This does not apply if COVID-19 precautions needed; separate protocols would be used. 

Custodial staff will clean and disinfect high touch areas regularly.

End-users (typically students) will regularly clean their work areas.

  • Individual designated student areas and related equipment
    • Manikin, simulator, or other training device
    • Reusable supplies (will[SM2]  be handled with gloves and placed in a designated cleaning area to be appropriately disinfected)

Role and Responsibilities

Campus COVID-19 Supervisor

BC’s Vice President for Administrative Services will serve as the college’s designated campus COVID-19 supervisor and is responsible for monitoring and updating the Safe Back to School Plan.

Site Supervisors

The Director of the Early Learning Center (ELC) is the designated site supervisor for the ELC. The COVID-19 site supervisor is responsible for working with the campus COVID-19 supervisor, the Flu Team and Public Safety to comply with the Safe Back to School Plan and enact measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.  The site supervisor is responsible for overseeing the setup of classrooms/offices, signage, and floor markings in the ELC. They are also responsible for overseeing the set-up of the Health Screening Station and enforcing the COVID-19 job site safety plan.

Employee Supervisors

The Director and Assistant Director are the designated employee supervisors. The employee supervisor ensures direct reports receive the provided COVID-19 safety training, follow COVID-19 safety measures, and routinely clean their workspace and shared equipment after each use. They will maintain housekeeping schedules which will include frequent cleaning and sanitizing on commonly touched surfaces. Supervisors are responsible for approving employee’s requests to come to campus and validating their employees completed the online health assessment every day they are on campus.  Supervisors may be scheduled as health screening station personnel at health screening stations.  

Health Screening Station Personnel

Site supervisors, department supervisors, other supervisors and area staff will rotate as health screening station personnel. They are responsible for checking in students and employees as they arrive on campus for class, services, or work, where required.

Department Representative

The Program Manager is the department representative responsible for ordering and storing PPE supplies and cleaning kits for their department for employee and student/customer use.

Employees and Students

All employees and students are required to submit a daily online health assessment via the webpage prior to reporting to the campus (exception: students living on campus do not need to submit complete a daily online health assessment if they are only going in and out of student housing). Every individual on campus must do the following:

  • Practice physical distancing.
  • Wear a face mask.
  • Follow all instructions regarding the use, maintenance, and disposal of PPE.
  • Those who are sick or experiencing even mild symptoms of illness that can’t be attributed to another condition (e.g., allergies), must stay home, or go home if symptoms manifest while on campus. If symptoms develop while the employee/student is not working, the employee/student should not return to work/class until they have been evaluated by a healthcare provider.
  • Follow state rules and guidelines for self-quarantine.
  • Agree to complete an online health assessment daily prior to their scheduled shift/class.
  • Report any COVID-19 symptoms, test results, or close contact with a COVID-positive person to covidreporting@bellevuecollege.edu.

Visitors, Customers, Vendors, Consultants

The College is limiting building access to those who are on campus for official business. All visitors who need to enter a building for official business must be signed in by a site supervisor using a paper health assessment or confirmed verbal answers to screening questions and follow the above employee requirements. The log of the visit will be maintained via health screening station digital records.

Visitors/customers will complete an online health assessment before arriving for their scheduled appointment or before entering the ELC for their scheduled appointment

Education and Training

The employer is responsible for educating workers about coronavirus and how to prevent transmission Employees are responsible for completing the Safety Training and COVID-19 Education Course before returning to the workplace and provide a completion certificate to their supervisor. Employees are responsible to read and agree to follow Bellevue College COVID-19 policies before returning to the workplace

  • All employees and students/customers are required to wear masks as described in the Department of Health guidance.
  • All employees are required to wash hands at the start and end of each shift and break.
  • Employees and students/customers must maintain minimum six-foot separation in all interactions by minimizing staff and customer traffic.  When physical distancing is not possible, barriers will be in place (e.g. registers and customer service counters). 
  • Breaks and work shifts will be staggered.
  • Regularly-scheduled employees who need a reasonable accommodation for any of the requirements in this document should contact HR.

ELC Safety and Health Requirements

Before any activity (e.g., instruction, practice, assessment) or service (e.g. transactions) can occur with students on campus, programs must organize and prepare to perform activities using physical distancing where possible and with appropriate PPE and other safety measures outlined here and in accordance with standards for the individual profession or field.

Licensing and Accreditation Standards Review

All rules governing childcare shall be upheld. 

Ratios for children must be followed. These rulings continue to change, it is essential to check the Washington State Department of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF) website in order to understand the most current rules for operations.

When reopening, plan for an in-depth staff review of already-required licensing rules and accreditation standards: hand washing, washing and sanitizing, exclusion, and universal precautions. Consider which additional precautions will be employed to prevent spread of COVID-19 outlined in the next section. Some rules and accreditation standards will have to be altered during this time period (i.e. suspending family style meal service and tooth brushing, increase mat distance while napping. See Classroom). 

Risk Sharing Guidance

Consider sharing risk guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) with staff and families, and ask that all – including those who have members in their household with compromised immune systems, respiratory problems, hypertension, diabetes, heart problems, chronic kidney disease, or cancer – sign a document stating they are aware of the risks associated with COVID-19 (see sample in appendix).

Exclude Ill and High-Risk Individuals 

Children (any age) or employees who have a temperature of 100.40F or higher, shortness of breath, cough or other potential COVID-19 symptoms that can’t be attributed to another condition should stay home and not return to campus until they are cleared to do so by a health authority or receive a negative result on a COVID-19 test.

Child care providers and staff in high-risk categories, including those age 60 or over, those with compromised immune systems, those with underlying health conditions, and those who are pregnant, should stay home or be excluded from daily operations. Individuals should consult their health care provider for guidance. 

  •  

 

Safety and Physical Distancing

Physical distancing is one of the most effective methods for preventing the spread of COVID-19. The ELC will implement measures to ensure the six (6) foot distancing rule is maintained throughout the ELC. Distance markers will be placed throughout ELC areas to assure minimum six-foot physical distancing requirements are maintained.

Location or Building Access

The ELC entry point for families and students is the front entrance of the Q-building on 145th Place, accessed by walkway from parking lots 20 & 21. Employees will enter from the back of the ELC, Q-building from parking lot 9.

Check-in Process

Students and employees should complete an online Health Screening Questionnaire the morning of the day they are scheduled to come to campus. Students and employees who have symptoms of illness should stay home and not come to campus. Students and employees should plan to arrive 30 minutes prior to scheduled class time to have their temperature taken[2] and screen into the building. Signage will indicate six (6) -foot distance for parents, family members, volunteers, or visitors to wait for health screening.

Health Screens and Temperature Monitoring

Take temperature before leaving home. 100.4 or higher or signs of illness stay home.

  • Employees/workers should ensure they are fever-free and asymptomatic before leaving home and reporting for work. Staff must follow College guidance contained in the Safe Back to School Plan regarding symptoms, daily health assessments and self-quarantine.  
  • Families need to take their and child’s temperatures at home, if anyone has a fever of 100.4 or higher, DO NOT come to childcare and must stay home.  
  • Anyone coming to the Q-Building must follow ELC protocol. 

Health Screening Station

A health screening station will be located at the front entrance of the Q-building for families and students. And at the back entrance of the Q-building for Staff. Families will receive directions to the station prior to their arrival in the form of their appointment confirmation      e-mail.

Health screening stations are staffed during regular hours of operation by health screening station personnel with a mask (gloves are optional). Employees doing health screening should take appropriate contact precautions.

  • Health screening stations will have a plexiglass screen to separate the screening personnel from the individual(s) being screened.

ELC Standard Cleaning Preparations [3]:

Masks, gloves and anti-viral cleaning products are provided to both employees and students/customers at the entrance of the ELC and work stations.

Cleaning

Use the 3-step method to clean, rinse, and disinfect. 

  • Cleaning removes germs, dirt, food, body fluids, and other material.  
  • Cleaning increases the benefit of sanitizing or disinfecting.  
  • Sanitizing reduces germs on surfaces to levels that are safe.  
  • Disinfecting kills germs on surfaces of a clean object. 
  • Clean and sanitize high touch areas multiple times a day: sinks, door handles, light switches, backs of chairs, restrooms, tables.  
  • Cleaning and Disinfecting is required on all surfaces and toys at the end of the day.  
  • Custodial disinfects area each night. 
  • Higher bleach concentration is in place for disinfecting. Do not use when children are in space.  

Toys

Limit shared materials to those you can easily clean, sanitize and disinfect. Clean and sanitize hands-on materials and equipment often and after each use. Individual labeled containers or bins can be used for each child. Examples include sensory bins, art supplies, etc. Use separate bins of toys for each infant or toddler, as they tend to put toys in their mouths.

Some items cannot be cleaned and sanitized. This includes things like playdough and sensory or water tables, stuffed animals, and dress up cloths. These items should be removed from the program unless they are individually assigned and labeled. Rotate toys that are out at any one time, so they can be cleaned and sanitized. Books and other paper-based materials are not high risk for spreading the virus. 

  • Toys that cannot be cleaned and sanitized should not be used. 
  • Toys in mouths or that are otherwise contaminated by body secretions or excretions should be set aside until they are cleaned by hand by a person wearing gloves or wearing gloves cleaned in a mechanical dishwasher. 
    • Be mindful of items more likely to be placed in a child’s mouth, like play food, dishes, and utensils. 
  • Machine washable cloth toys should be used by one individual at a time or should not be used at all. These toys should be laundered before being used by another child. 
  • End of day, clean and sanitize all materials, tables, chairs and shelves. 
  • Do not share toys with other groups of infants or toddlers, unless they are washed and sanitized before being moved from one group to the other. 
  • Children’s books, like other paper-based materials such as mail or envelopes, are not considered a high risk for transmission and do not need additional cleaning or disinfection procedures. 

Classrooms and Outdoors

  • Use the 3-step method to clean, rinse, and disinfect high-touch parts of playground equipment (handrails, swings, tricycles, etc.) before and after group use, especially between groups. If this is not feasible, shift to different outdoor activities.  
  • Structures do not require disinfecting (as of July 2020); loose parts continue cleaning and disinfecting. 

Laundry

  • Wear gloves when handling soiled laundry and when moving from washer to dryer.  
  • Use good hand hygiene-washing hands when handling laundry. 
  • Do not shake dirty laundry; this minimizes the possibility of dispersing virus through the air. 
  • Wash items as appropriate in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. If possible, launder items using the warmest appropriate water setting for the items and dry items completely. Dirty laundry that has been in contact with an ill person can be washed with other people’s items. 
  • Clean and disinfect hampers or other carts for transporting laundry according to guidance above for hard or soft surfaces.  
  • Machine washable cloth toys should be used by one individual at a time or should not be used at all. These toys should be laundered before being used by another child. 
  • Use bedding (sheets, pillows, blankets, sleeping bags) that can be washed.  
    • Keep each child’s bedding separate, and consider storing in individually labeled bins, cubbies, or bags.  
    • Cots and mats should be labeled for each child.  
    • Bedding that touches a child’s skin should be cleaned weekly or before use by another child. 

High Touch Areas

Clean and sanitize high touch areas multiple times a day: sinks, door handles, light switches, backs of chairs, restrooms, tables, handrails.
