Fall 2020 Campus Plan 

On August 17, 2020, we will begin the Fall 2020 Semester. The following plan has been developed to make all individuals associated with Crowder College aware of the policies and procedures develop with one goal in mind – to provide a safe educational environment for all.

ACTIONS COMMON FOR ALL EMPLOYEES, STUDENTS, AND VISITORS TO CAMPUS:

In keeping with the Crowder College Mission of building a civil, serving, literate, learning community of responsible citizens, we must do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our communities. Based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendation, when social distancing measures are unable to be maintained, we have the expectation that all employees, students, and visitors to campus will wear face coverings on all Crowder College campus sites. In our school facilities (such as commons areas, hallways, and classrooms) where a distance of six feet between individuals cannot be met, all individuals should wear a mask for your safety and the safety of others.

1. The following business/social operations should be followed:

  • Social distancing (6 feet of separation) should be followed when achievable.
  • When social distancing measures are unable to be maintained, we have the expectation that all employees, students, and visitors to campus will wear face coverings.
  • Modify physical workspaces to maximize social distancing. Clean and disinfect “high-touch” surfaces and items each day.
  • Virtual meetings or phone calls should be utilized as much as possible.

2. The following health safety practices should be followed by all:

  • If you feel sick, you should stay home.
  • Wash hands with soap and water and/or using a hand sanitizer.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, throw the tissue in the trash, and wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap
  • and water.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces such as door handles, faucet handles, light switches, etc. Self-monitor for symptoms, including fever, on a daily basis.
  • When social distancing measures are unable to be maintained, we have the expectation that all employees, students, and visitors to campus will wear face coverings.
  • All individuals should respect others’ level of comfort during the time period of infection prevention. Assume that each person you may interact with has the desire to strongly hold to social distancing guidelines.
  • Specific health safety information will be posted at all campus sites.

The color-coded table found on the next pages, covers the details of the plan broken down for students, employees, and the public or outside groups. All of these directives and procedures are subject to change, based on educational and public health goals. If you have specific questions not covered in the table, please ask your immediate supervisor. If you are a Crowder College student, please feel free to ask questions of your Campus Director (if you are a student at Cassville, Joplin Advanced Training and Technology Center, McDonald County, Nevada, or Webb City campus sites) or the Academic Affairs Office McDonald Hall Room 124 on the Neosho Campus.
