Guidelines for Campus Health and Safety (For Employees and Visitors)
Physical distancing (the 6-foot campus)
Physical distancing is one of the easiest ways to promote safety on campus. This is done by modifying shared workspaces, staggering classroom seating, and creating buffer zones. Everyone has a part to play. Remain six feet (about two arm lengths) from other people, avoid groups, and time your entrances and exits to buildings, classrooms, and offices to alleviate congestion.
Stockton has implemented heightened cleaning protocols to ensure the health and well-being of our community. We will disinfect common areas frequently and provide complimentary sanitization products throughout campus. Staff should use these products regularly to clean their work spaces.
New signs and informational posters are being placed strategically across campus as friendly reminders that we must each do our part for the well-being of all. Please follow directions given on these signs—they are specifically intended to promote safety and physical distancing.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and hygiene
Regular hand washing and appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), including masks or face coverings, help prevent person-to-person transmission of COVID-19. Please provide your own face covering and wear it in all public settings, including classrooms, hallways and public restrooms. Employees working in common office areas must wear a mask when unable to maintain 6 feet distance. A limited supply of disposable surgical masks will be available for visitors to campus. Individuals who have underlying health conditions which prevent the wearing of such coverings will need to contact Human Resources (employees) or the Wellness Center (students) to request an exception.
Sharing information assists strategic planning. All campus community members are expected to read and follow campus announcements and protocols and will be invited to share any comments and questions about how to improve health and safety measures. Please also self-monitor your health and remain at home if you are ill.
Health monitoring and contact tracing
Stockton's Public Health Advisory (PHA), which includes representatives from the AtlantiCare Health System as well as members of the President's Cabinet, the School of Health Sciences, and the Office of Campus Public Safety, has been meeting regularly to establish protocols and procedures for testing and tracing.
