COVID-19 Guidance for SLCC Employees

The South City Campus Child Care Center will be closed until Monday, July 13.

  • Employees can contact Jill Tew 801-957-4722.
  • Parents of children can contact Holly Garcia at 801-957-3070 for questions.

SLCC employees will gradually return to the workplace through June 2020. The guidelines and resources below are intended to aid your transition and meet other needs related to the coronavirus pandemic, in accordance with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state and county health departments.

Guidelines

Stay home and seek medical attention if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Fever; coughing; trouble breathing; sore throat; muscle aches and pains; sudden changes in smell or taste; or if you feel unwell.

While on campus:

  • Stay 6 feet from others
  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Use hand sanitizer when handwashing is not possible; hand-sanitizing stations are readily available on all campuses
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Do not shake hands
  • Cover coughs or sneezes (e.g., into a tissue, or inside of your elbow)
  • Regularly clean high-touch surfaces (e.g., door handles, counters, light switches, remote controls, restroom surfaces, arms of chairs) in between in-person appointments
  • Shared equipment and workstations should be sanitized after each use
  • Dispose of masks and gloves in trash receptacles, not recycling bins
  • In-person interactions should take place only in groups consisting of 50 or fewer people
  • Wear a face covering, following state requirements

In light of Governor Gary Herbert's Executive Order requiring the use of face coverings in all state facilities, effective June 26, 2020 SLCC will require all students, employees and visitors to wear face coverings on campus in the following locations:

  • In all indoor public spaces, including classrooms, hallways, lobbies, break rooms, study areas, restrooms and elevators
  • In all shared work areas and shared vehicles
  • In all private meeting spaces, conference areas, private offices and outdoor venues if 6-foot social distancing is not possible

Cloth face coverings provide a guard against spreading potentially infected droplets to other individuals and discourage people from touching their faces and potentially infecting themselves with unclean hands. Face coverings used at the college must adhere to the following:

  • Fit snugly but comfortably against the sides of the face
  • Completely cover the nose and mouth
  • Secured properly with ties or ear loops
  • Include at least two layers of fabric
  • Allow for breathing without restriction

Disposable face coverings intended for one-time use are also acceptable, as long as the wearer follows the manufacturer's directions.

If you are in need of an appropriate face covering, the State of Utah is offering up to six free masks per household through its Mask for Every Utahn program.

SLCC supports the use of face coverings to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Thank you for doing your part to keep our community safe and healthy.

If you’re considered high risk as determined by the CDC and are asked to return to work, talk with your supervisor about available options. You may also contact SLCC's Leave Coordinator, 801-957-4722.

The college will provide cleaning/sanitizing supplies for departmental reception areas. Request a sanitization kit for your department by emailing fixit@slcc.edu.

COVID-19 emergency pay has been significantly reduced and is dependent on meeting only a few exceptional circumstances. For more information, visit emergency pay guidelines.

Employees may annually carry over a maximum of 40 days of vacation, with a grace period to use vacation over that 40-day limit until September 30. This year, the grace period is extended to December 31.

If you have questions, please contact Human Resources at 801-957-4210 or email us at hr@slcc.edu.

All college-supported travel has been suspended through the beginning of Fall semester, or until Utah moves to a “green” phase. We will revisit this decision prior to Fall 2020.
