Health and Safety on Campus
Posted on August 19, 2020

The Fall 2020 semester at Tyler will be a bit different from past fall semesters at the college. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the college has developed and implemented safety protocols that must be followed by all who come to campus. These include, but are not limited to wearing a CDC-approved type of face covering/mask that covers their nose and mouth; social distancing (a minimum of feet between people); completing the Student Health and Safety Agreement in Canvas for each class (for all fall semester students); heeding all posted signs; and following guidelines provided by instructors and student services offices.
For your safety and the safety of others, it is also important to know when to stay off campus or when to leave campus. Do not come to campus if:
- You are ill
- Have symptoms consistent with COVID-19
- Have been tested for COVID-19 and are awaiting results
- Have recently been diagnosed with COVID-19
- Have been exposed to someone who has COVID-19
- Have travelled to an area where there is a high incidence of COVID-19
If you meet any of the above criteria, contact the Dean of Students Office (students) or Human Resources (employees, contractors or campus visitors). Anyone who becomes ill or develops symptoms consistent with COVID-19 while on campus must leave campus immediately, and contact the Dean of Students Office (students) or Human Resources (employees, contractors, or campus visitors).
The college has also put procedures in place if, after you’ve been on campus, you find out you have COVID-19 or have been exposed to COVID-19. Students should contact the Dean of Students Office, and employees, contractors and campus visitors should contact Human Resources.
Additional details about the college’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including health and safety protocols, its campus reopening plan, information about connecting to student services, information about COVID-19 and more may be found online at www.jtcc.edu/covid-19.
