In preparation for the 2021-2022 academic year, the Jones College COVID-19 task force has worked to produce standard operational procedures as needed in the resurgence of COVID-19 cases in our community and our state. The COVID-19 task force is devoted to ensuring the safety and well being of our entire Jones College community, and the following operational guidelines were created with our Bobcat Family in mind.
Jones College’s daily campus operations function under normal standards in the absense of elevation of confirmed positive COVID-19 cases within our region. However, if elevated COVID-19 case activity increases within our region, the college will move to a four-level system of COVID-19 operations:
Green COVID-19 Level of Emergency Operation
Green is the lowest level of emergency operation. This level encourages handwashing and proper hygiene, as well as proper cleaning of personal work areas.
Yellow COVID-19 Level of Emergency Operation
Yellow represents an enhanced threat. This level encourages social distancing and masks for close contact situations.
Purple COVID-19 Level of Emergency Operation
Purple represents a heightened COVID-19 threat. This level requires social distancing, masks for all indoor facilities, altered classroom and employee working patterns, modified dining areas, and limited access to campus for students, faculty, staff, and visitors.
Red COVID-19 Level of Emergency Operation
Red represents the highest level of COVID-19 threat. Level Red would require all in-person campus operations to stop.
In addition to the above operational levels, all local, state, and federal guidelines will be implemented as directed.
