Let's Get Back to the 'Peake
RE-OPENING STUDENT RESOURCES
| ARCHIVED COVID COMMUNICATIONS
As the world continues to respond to the coronavirus pandemic, we remain fully committed to providing our students with the services and resources they need to reach their academic and career goals, while keeping everyone’s health our top priority.
We’ve been hard at work here—putting measured, intentional protocols in place to get all of our Skipjacks Back to the 'Peake this semester as quickly and as safely as possible.
We’re making sure your campus and offices are as safe as possible. Everything is cleaned and sanitized frequently. Safe and effective vaccines are now widely available.
Protocols for Visitors
Students and employees are required to report positive COVID-19 diagnoses to their instructor or supervisor immediately.
No online screening or pre-registration required for campus visitors, faculty or staff.
All entrances and buildings open and available for use.
CURRENT COVID-19 SAFETY MEASURES
Following guidance from the Queen Anne’s County Health Department and our Back to the ‘Peake committee, we are requiring all students and employees to immediately report positive COVID-19 diagnoses, symptoms, and/or instances of exposure to the College so that appropriate contact tracing and mitigation efforts may occur.
- Students must immediately report positive COVID-19 diagnoses to their current instructors.
- Employees must immediately report positive COVID-19 diagnoses to both their direct supervisor and Human Resources.
- In addition, following local public health guidelines, large gatherings (defined as 100+) must follow recommended safety protocols.
These are small but effective ways that we can protect the people around us—and it is our responsibility to do so.
CAMPUS COVID-19 METRICS
Wastewater surveillance captures presence of SARS-CoV-2 shed by people with and without symptoms. By measuring SARS-CoV-2 levels in untreated wastewater over time, public health officials can determine if infections are increasing or decreasing in a sewershed. Chesapeake College has been conducting wastewater surveillance measures since March 2022, with results consistently indicating little to no presence in the campus's sewershed. We remain encouraged by these results.
