Infectious Disease Policy

RATIONALE

Reduce risk of exposure to infectious diseases for employees and students

POLICY

Students and employees who are infected with or suspected of having Covid-19, measles, rubella, mumps, chickenpox, pediculosis, scabies, tuberculosis (TB) and other Centers for Disease Control and Prevention-identified diseases will be denied physical access to Southwest Tennessee Community College campuses and centers until released by a physician or the local public health department.

Southwest Tennessee Community College will follow and adhere to local laws, restrictions and mandates to promote good health and limit the spread of illness and disease. Southwest will also follow Center for Diseases Control guidelines and recommendations.

For example, if Shelby County Government passes an ordinance that requires all individuals to wear a mask while in public, Southwest policies and procedures will comply with this mandate.

SELF-REPORTING COVID-19

In accordance with state law, effective Nov. 15, 2021, Southwest no longer requests self-reports for positive COVID-19 test results. Stay safe and be well!
