In the event of a positive result of a class member, the health department will complete
the contact tracing. It is recommended that faculty maintain a seating chart in order
to identify the student(s) that need to be contacted.
Flexible Attendance Options
While faculty may not alter the delivery mode of their class, they may implement flexible
attendance options to accommodate students who require flexibility during this time.
Faculty are responsible for ensuring that course content is available to students
who take advantage of these flexible attendance options and for holding classes at
the times and locations scheduled.
Faculty should inform their dean about the offering of flexible attendance options
so that the dean is able to answer any questions that students may have.
