Campus Updates 01/27/22

Hi Campus Community,  

Here are this week’s updates! 

RETURN TO CAMPUS/COVID-19 

  • Positive cases: Executive Team (ET) is closely monitoring the changing conditions of the pandemic, including the number of COVID-19 exposure reports submitted by students and employees. Reported positive cases remain low. Positive cases since the first day of winter quarter (January 10):  
  • Student positive cases: 39, which is 2.14% of total students taking classes with in-person components.  
  • Employee positive cases: 19, which is 3% of total college employees. 
  • Masks:  
  • The College is aware of increased concern regarding protective equipment to support working on campus. KN-95 masks have been distributed to front-line staff and to faculty who are teaching in-person; more KN-95 masks will be arriving on campus soon and will be distributed. KN-95 masks can be used until wet or dirty. Contact your Student Learning Equity Success (SLES) or Executive Team (ET) member for replacement masks, as needed. 
  • KN-95 masks are just one mask type to consider. Per the CDC, masks and respirators can provide different levels of protection depending on the type of mask and how they are used. Loosely-woven cloth products provide the least protection, layered finely-woven products offer more protection, well-fitting disposable surgical masks and KN95s offer even more protection, and well-fitting NIOSH-approved respirators (including N95s) offer the highest level of protection and are often reserved for healthcare settings.  
  • Ways to improve protection with cloth and disposable surgical masks include:  
  • Wear two masks (disposable mask underneath AND cloth mask on top) 
  • Combine either a cloth mask or disposable mask with a fitter or brace 
  • Knot and tuck ear loops of a 3-ply mask where they join the edge of the mask 
  • For disposable procedure masks, fold and tuck the unneeded material under the edges.  
  • Use masks that attach behind the neck and head with either elastic bands or ties (instead of ear loops) 
  • Whatever product you use, it should provide a good fit (i.e., fitting closely on the face without any gaps along the edges or around the nose) and be comfortable enough when worn properly (covering your nose and mouth) so that you can keep it on when you need to.  
  • Read more tips from the CDC on how to improve how well your mask protects you. 
  • Lastly, KN-95 masks, as well as surgical masks, are available at Welcome Desks in the 1000/Admin, 5000/FOSS, and 4000/Library buildings for those who forgot their mask. 
  • Vaccines: the COVID-19 vaccine clinic will be open now Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays 9am-5 pm starting January 31, 2022. The clinic is in the Quiet Dining Room in the PUB/9000 building. 
  • TestsCOVID-19 test types explained.  
  • Curbside: Curbside pick-up and drop-off service is no longer available; items previously available through Curbside are now available through the relevant department.

Campus Updates- All Staff (01/20/22)

Hi Campus Community,  
 

Here are this week’s updates! 
 

RETURN TO CAMPUS/COVID-19 

  • Classes: winter 2022 classes continue as planned: in-person, hybrid, and online. 
  • Vaccinations:  
  • 92% of in-person students have attested to their vaccination status or have claimed an eligible exemption for winter quarter.   
  • You now can get Pfizer and Moderna vaccine boosters 5 months (instead of 6 months) after completing the original vaccine series. Children ages 12 and up are now recommended to receive a booster as well.  See CDC statements on Pfizer and on Moderna. Boosters are available at the vaccine clinic in the Quiet Dining Room in the PUB. Walk-ins are welcome if you tell them you are a Shoreline Community College employee. 
  • Cases: Executive Team (ET) is closely monitoring the changing conditions of the pandemic, including the number of COVID-19 exposure reports submitted daily by students, staff, and faculty. Reported positive cases remain very low. Here are the numbers since the first day of winter quarter (January 10): 
  • Student positive cases: 26, which is 0.5% of total winter students. 
  • Employee positive cases: 12, which is 1.7% of total college employees. 

While Omicron has a significantly higher transmission rate, it typically is showing to have less severe symptoms in vaccinated individuals than other variants, and for a shorter period of time. 

  • Masks:  
  • KN-95 masks have been distributed to front-line staff and to faculty who are teaching in-person.   
  • Buy from a trusted source. Project N95 vets mask distributors. Armbrust USA, is a company that makes and sells medical-grade masks made in the U.S.A. by various manufacturers.

Updated Key Dates  

The ctcLink website has been updated with important dates related to the deployment of ctcLink and services that may be affected. We encourage you to review the important date information on the ctcLink web page.

Jan 24- FAFSA/WASFA – It is recommended that students complete their FAFSA/WASFA application by January 24 to ensure those students who are eligible for financial aid receive their money before the conversion. If students miss this deadline, they can still complete these applications and they will be processed after Shoreline is converted to the new system. 

Jan 26- Purchase Requisition Deadline, last day to submit IPVs & invoices to Accounts Payable for payment – This means you must complete the arranging,and approving of purchases before January 26 or your purchase will be delayed until at least the middle of March. Technology purchases and some others require previous approval, so be sure to allow enough time for purchases that must be made before March. Online purchasing requisitions will open in ctcLink beginning Monday, March 14. 

Under Development:  

Self-paced ctcLink essentials training materials for both Faculty & Staff are almost complete in Canvas! You will be added to these OPTIONAL training courses later this week. These are OPTIONAL and are provided as another way for you to access ctcLink training content.
