Subject: Safe Return Update
Date: July 31, 2020

Dear faculty and staff, 
 
One of the prevailing questions our team receives is, “How do I know if I am cleared to come on campus without special permission?” The answer depends on whether you will be part of the on-campus cohort for the fall or if you will be working remotely.

When can I come to campus for work?

  • When you have completed the training and testing requirements
  • When you have been participating in the self-monitoring program
  • When your job or activity has been identified as part of the "on campus-cohort" (work to be done requires daily presence)
  • When your divisional VP, AVP, and your supervisor has worked to identify your occasional or scheduled presence as part of a shift or team

On-Campus Cohort

If you are an employee who is already working on campus, you will need to complete these three steps in order to retain card access through campus safety.

  1. Register for and complete COVID screening by August 12: www.calvin.edu/go/covid-screening
  2. Complete this COVID Awareness Training and Covenant form by August 17.
  3. Continue to submit the Healthy@Calvin form daily.

If you are an employee who has been working remotely and will be returning to campus by September 15th, you will need to complete these four steps to receive card access through campus safety:

  1. Submit this Return To Work form.
  2. Register for and complete COVID screening by August 12: www.calvin.edu/go/covid-screening
  3. Complete this COVID Awareness Training and Covenant form by August 17.
  4. Submit the Healthy@Calvin form daily starting August 17.

Working Remotely

If you are an employee who has been working remotely and will likely continue to work remotely, you still need to complete these steps:

  1. Complete this COVID Awareness Training and Covenant form by August 17.
  2. Submit the Healthy@Calvin form daily starting August 17.
  3. Submit this Return To Work form for one-time access if you need to come to campus for a special reason.

At any point, when you are approved to join the on-campus cohort or if you know you will need to come to campus periodically, you will need to:

  1. Register for and complete COVID screening at least 14 days prior to your return to campus: www.calvin.edu/go/covid-screening

Screening Schedule

All employees who will begin working on campus on August 17 or plan to work occasionally on campus this fall are expected to be screened during the weeks of August 3 or August 10. Available test dates will be:

  • Monday, August 3
  • Wednesday, August 5
  • Monday, August 10
  • Wednesday, August 12

Screening begins at 9 a.m. at the Hoogenboom Health & Recreation Center, Entrance D (between the Hoogenboom Center and the Tennis and Track facility). Park in Lot 6. Please sign up for the first available time slot.

Sincerely,
