- Protocols for COVID-19 Symptoms and Diagnoses
Faculty Contracting COVID-19
In the event of the presence of COVID-19 symptoms, faculty are required to follow CWRU protocols for reporting and testing. If the University Health Service (UHS) determines that any faculty reporting symptoms have COVID-19 or should be treated as having COVID-19, Human Resources will be notified. HR will then contact the Department Chair and Dean.
Each lead instructor shall have a list of other faculty members or adjuncts that could be a substitute teacher for each course of their courses. The list of potential substitutes should be given to the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs who has the authority to appoint and/or hire substitute instructors. All Faculty shall agree that access to their teaching materials (including Canvass and Atrio site access) can be shared with a designated substitute instructor in the event of a COVID diagnosis. If the UHS assessment is that the reporting faculty member does not have COVID-19, then standard policies for illness apply. Faculty who are quarantined but asymptomatic may continue teaching using online delivery.
Staff Contracting COVID-19
In the event of the presence of COVID-19 symptoms, staff members are required to follow CWRU protocols for reporting and testing. Individuals who work on campus and have tested positive for COVID-19 should notify their supervisors that they are not coming to campus or that they are leaving campus for medical reasons.
Student(s) Testing Positive for COVID-19
Any student who tests positive for COVID-19 should notify the University Health Services (UHS). UHS will manage notifications and contact tracing efforts.
