COVID-19 (Coronavirus) INFORMATION

LATEST CAMPUS UPDATES

 

The start of a College semester is always an exciting time. New courses, new challenges, new students chasing their dreams, and returning students closer to reaching their goals. It’s an incredible moment filled with the promise for each student to take a step closer to achieving their goals.

We’ve made some changes this fall — some for the health of our campus community, and some to help you succeed in what is now a mostly online environment. Our students inspired us in the spring with their confident transition to online classes. We know you’re going to do the same this fall.

The pages in this section answer some of the most pressing questions we’ve heard from students and families, addressing health and safety measures, course formats, available resources, and more. Please review these pages, and reach out to the departments listed on the Resources page with any questions.

To all returning students, welcome back. To our new students, welcome to Cayuga. We’re excited to see all of you succeed.

PLAN TO RESTART ON-CAMPUS ACTIVITIES AND IN-PERSON INSTRUCTION

1. REPOPULATION OF THE CAMPUS PLANNING SHOULD INCLUDE:

Capacity to Maintain Social Distancing

Phasing and quantity of student, faculty and staff repopulation factors such as ability to maintain social distancing in public spaces and residence halls, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) availability and availability of safe transportation.

Reducing Density in Campus Spaces

The College will re-open in a phased approach as defined below:

  • June 22: Administrative employees return in a “Soft Opening” status. Screening protocols begin. Specific employees will be required to return to campus.
  • June 29-July 3: Administrative employees continue to report to work. Functional area supervisors and others identified by area vice presidents will begin reporting to work on campus. Screening continues.
  • July 6-July 10: Administrative employees continue to report to work. Functional area supervisors and others identified by area vice presidents continue reporting to work on campus. A split schedule of remote/on campus work for staff (50% MW, 50% TTH), where appropriate will commence. Employees will work alternate days. For example, unless otherwise approved, employee A will work on campus Monday and Wednesday, and remotely Tuesday and Thursday. Employee B will work on campus Tuesday and Thursday, and remotely Monday and Wednesday. Classes remain online and faculty continue with remote instruction. Screening continues.
  • July 13: All staff expected to work from campus. Services will continue to be offered remotely. All employees will report on campus to work every day, except when paid time off has been approved or the employee has sought and received an accommodation from Human Resources. Screening continues.
  • Although a Phase IV reopen date has yet to be determined, any reopening of Cayuga Community College will adhere to Phase IV guidelines outlined in Reopening New York. During Phase IV, all staff, faculty and students will be permitted to return to campus. All student services will be provided remotely and select services will be offered in person. Courses will be provided as outlined in Fall 2020 Instruction Plan.

Instruction Plan

Entry to campus will be reduced to one entry, which will have controlled entry, allowing for 6 feet of social distancing before entering the building. Visible markers will be used to indicate appropriate social distancing as a reminder for individuals entering the building.

Social distancing markers will be used to mark 6 feet of spacing in commonly used areas. Markers will also be used to mark where an individual should stand when being helped by clerical and reception staff.

Office spaces will be modified or reconfigured so workers are at least 6ft. apart. In cases where this is not possible, additional protection will be put in place as defined below.

Campus office and common areas, café, study areas, computer labs, and classrooms will be adjusted to reduce occupancy limits by 50% and ensure 6 feet of distancing when occupied. Non-essential common areas will remain closed at this time and signage will be posted (gym, fitness area, student lounge spaces, unused classrooms, etc.)

Arrows will be placed on hallway floors to facilitate bi-directional foot traffic.

Campus Events

Non-college sponsored events will be prohibited. The College will attempt to conduct events virtually. When events must occur in person, the College will follow all federal, SUNY, state, and local guidance advising to ensure all campus events do not exceed the advisable number of people at gatherings.

Staff will be strongly encouraged to conduct meetings via videoconferencing when possible. Any meeting of more than five people must be virtual. In-person meetings of more than five people must be approved by the area Vice President. Larger classroom space will be designated for the meeting which must occur in person. These spaces will be set with 6ft distance seating and will be cleaned/sanitized after each use.

Meeting & Business Operations

Employees should remain in their workspace except for necessary trips into the hallway.

Staff will be strongly encouraged to conduct meetings via videoconferencing when possible. Larger classroom space will be designated for meeting which must occur in person. These spaces will be set with 6ft distance seating and will be cleaned/sanitized after each use.

Plexiglass Barriers & Face Shields

Consistent with research findings and SUNY guidance, faculty who choose to wear a clear face shield while teaching must also wear a face mask. The Provost will consider individual requests to waive this requirement based on factors including room size/configuration. We are exploring such barrier-mitigation options as miniature microphones, captioning and creative room reconfiguration.

Work Accommodation Requests

Employees will be provided information regarding the process for requesting work accommodations related to COVID-19.

PPE

A mask will be required to enter campus and must be worn. Gaiters, bandannas, and valve masks are not acceptable face masks. Disposable masks will be provided to students/guests who may arrive to campus without an acceptable mask.

For functional area offices which conduct business/transactions at a service counter, face shields and/or plexiglass will be used in addition to face masks to provide additional protection. Area managers will be advised of the process for requesting a face shield for specific employees or the installation of plexiglass barriers.

  • All employees will be required to wear a facemask while in a common area. In private offices, a face mask will be required whenever meeting with another individual.
  • Employees will be provided information and training regarding the appropriate use, cleaning, and disposal of face coverings based on the CDC guidance. The sharing of masks is prohibited and employees should consult the CDC website for additional information regarding the use of PPE.
  • The College will keep a supply of reusable masks that will be provided to employees upon request. There will also be a supply of disposable masks to provide to guests who may arrive to campus without appropriate face covering.

Screening and Testing

Daily Screening will occur at one main entry point of campus. Using a designated entry point for all employees and students who enter campus with all other entrances closed, the College will screen individuals using a symptom surveillance system. Upon entry, employees, students, and guests will be expected to respond to screening survey and consent to a thermal temperature scan. Individuals who do not pass the screening will be provided a handout with information and directed to leave campus.

  • If an employee is denied access to campus as a result of failing the screening, that information will be provided to Human Resources.
  • If a student is denied access to campus as a result of failing the screening, the Dean of Students will be notified.
  • If a contractor is denied access to campus as a result of failing the screening, the employer will be contacted.

The College is exploring technology solutions that allow for remote screening.

Individuals entering a campus will be recorded in a daily log to ensure accurate tracking of people on campus.

Cayuga Community College will continue its collaborative approach with the Cayuga County and Oswego County Health Departments and will coordinate communication of situational updates and testing availability. In addition, the Cayuga County Health Department will continue to respond to COVID-19 by conducting contact tracing and monitoring of quarantined individuals. As guidance from the Governor’s Office and from the Central New York region changes, the College and the County will coordinate plans and evaluate the impact to College operations.

Residential Living

Cayuga Community College does not own or operate student housing. However, the College has a marketing agreement with a privately-owned management company who provides housing for Cayuga students in Lattimore Hall.

Lattimore Hall has implemented several strategies to encourage behaviors that reduce the spread of COVID-19, which are 100% aligned with the CDC’s posted Considerations for Institutions of Higher Education.

  • Staying Home or Self-Isolating when Appropriate
    • If a decision is made to have any version of in-person classes, before returning to campus, actively encourage students who have been sick with COVID-19 symptoms, tested positive for COVID-19, or have been potentially exposed to someone with COVID-19 (either through community-related exposure or international travel) to follow CDC guidance to self-isolate or stay home. Lattimore Hall staff have been in discussions with the Health Department, and they will follow their recommendation as to whether students should go home with their families or self-isolate in one of the Hall’s 1st Floor Quarantine Suites.
    • Once back on campus, educate students on when they should stay home or self-isolate in their living quarters.
      • Actively encourage students who are sick or have recently had close contact with a person with COVID-19 to stay home or in their living quarters (e.g., dorm room). Develop policies that encourage sick individuals to stay at home without fear of reprisals, and ensure students are aware of these policies. The Hall provides free WiFi to aid in virtual learning and telework options, if feasible.
      • Students should stay home when they have tested positive for or are showing symptoms of COVID-19. This is the recommendation of the CDC as ‘best practice’. If that is not possible, Hall staff will require self-isolation in one of their 1st Floor Quarantine Suites.
      • Students who have recently had close contact with a person with COVID-19 should also stay home and monitor their health.
      • CDC’s criteria can help inform return to work/school policies:
      • If they have been sick with COVID-19
      • If they have recently had a close contact with a person with COVID-19
  • Hand Hygiene and Respiratory Etiquette
    • Recommend and reinforce handwashing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
      • Soap and water, as well as hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol, are provided to students.
    • Encourage students to cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or use the inside of your elbow. Used tissues should be thrown in the trash and hands washed immediately with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
      • Soap and water, as well as hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol, are provided to students.
  • Cloth Face Coverings
    • Provide, require, and reinforce use of cloth face coverings among students and staff. Face coverings should be worn as feasible and are most essential in times when physical distancing is difficult. Individuals are frequently reminded not to touch the face covering and to wash their hands frequently. Information is provided to all students and staff on proper use, removal, and washing of cloth face coverings.
      • Note: Cloth face coverings should not be placed on:
        • Anyone who has trouble breathing or is unconscious
        • Anyone who is incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the cover without assistance
        • Cloth face coverings are meant to protect other people in case the wearer is unknowingly infected but does not have symptoms. Cloth face coverings are not surgical masks, respirators, or other medical personal protective equipment.
  • Adequate Supplies
    • Support healthy hygiene behaviors by providing adequate supplies, including soap, hand sanitizer containing at least 60 percent alcohol, paper towels, tissues, disinfectant wipes, and cloth face coverings.
  • Signs and Messages
    • Post signs in highly visible locations (e.g., building entrances, restrooms, dining areas) that promote everyday protective measures and describe how to stop the spread of germs (such as by properly washing hands and properly wearing a cloth face covering).
    • Include messages (for example, videos) about behaviors that prevent spread of COVID-19 when communicating with students.
  • Specific Considerations for common spaces at Lattimore Hall, to prevent the spread of COVID-19
    • Cancellation of all public or non-essential group activities and events.
    • Offer alternative methods for activities and social interaction such as participation via free WiFi.
    • Arrange seating of chairs and tables to be least 6 feet (2 meters) apart during shared meals or other events.
    • Require altered schedules to reduce mixing and close contact, such as staggering meal and activity times and forming small groups that regularly participate at the same times and do not mix.
    • Minimize traffic in enclosed spaces, such as elevators and stairwells. Limited the number of individuals in an elevator at one time and designating one-directional stairwells, since there are two sets of stairwells in the building.
    • Ensure that social distancing can be maintained in shared rooms, such as television, game, or exercise rooms.
    • Make sure that shared rooms in the facility have good air flow from an air conditioner or an opened window.
    • Work with building maintenance staff to increase ventilation rates, as well as the percentage of outdoor air that circulates into the building.
    • Clean and disinfect shared areas (laundry facilities, elevators, community rooms) and frequently-touched surfaces using EPA-registered disinfectants multiple times per day, following up with Microban, which eliminates Human Coronavirus from touched surfaces for 24 -hours after application. After each suite common space, including living room, kitchen, and bathroom, and all student rooms are fully cleaned and disinfected, we are pleased to announce that Lattimore Hall is the first student housing in the United States to announce that we are sanitizing the rooms using UV-C Light. This proven technology was tested in a Pilot Study on the NYC Subway System and in NYC hospitals treating patients for COVID-19.
  • Considerations for specific communal rooms
    • Shared kitchens and dining rooms
      • Restrict the number of people allowed in the kitchen and dining room at one time so that everyone can stay at least 6 feet (2 meters) apart from one another.
      • People who are sick, their roommates, and those who have higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19 should eat or be fed in their room.
      • Shared dishes, drinking glasses, cups, or eating utensils are prohibited. Non-disposable food service items used should be handled with gloves and washed with dish soap and hot water or in a dishwasher. Washing hands after handling used food service items is promoted.
      • Disposal of trash from suites is done weekly by maintenance staff wearing a mask and gloves.
  • Laundry rooms
    • Maintain access and adequate supplies to laundry facilities to help prevent spread of COVID-19.
    • Restrict the number of people allowed in laundry rooms at one time to ensure everyone can stay at least 6 feet (2 meters) apart.
    • Provide disposable gloves, soap for washing hands, and household cleaners and EPA-registered disinfectants for residents and staff to clean and disinfect buttons, knobs, and handles of laundry machines, laundry baskets, and shared laundry items.
    • Newly-installed equipment will allow students to pay for washing and drying via a phone app to eliminate unnecessary touching of ATM, change machine, money, and laundry equipment.
  • Recreational areas: study lounge and activity room, and in-suite activities
    • Activity room and study lounge are closed until further notice.
    • Activities and sports (e.g., ping pong, basketball, chess) that require close contact are not recommended.
  • Shared bathrooms
    • Make sure bathrooms are continuously stocked with soap and paper towels. Hand sanitizer is also provided.
    • Provide information on how to wash hands properly.
    • Students are instructed that sinks could be an infection source, and should avoid placing toothbrushes directly on counter surfaces. Totes are recommended for personal items to limit their contact with other surfaces in the bathroom.
  • Public water fountains
    • All campus public water fountains have been closed with the exception of those with no-touch sensor-operated water dispensing systems. Disposable cup dispensers and trash cans will be placed at each of those water fountains to allow for access to water with reduced risk to contamination.

Operational Activity

To ensure health, safety, flexibility and academic integrity, Cayuga plans to offer at least 85% of its course sections (at least 644 of 757 sections) in formats that involve no physical presence on campus. Only selected laboratory, developmental and gateway sections will be considered for on-campus scheduling. These relatively few on-campus sections will be allowed to hold on campus only the specific learning activities that can transpire in no other way. E.g., 25% of the learning activities in a biology lab section might have to be scheduled on campus while virtual laboratory simulations may suffice for the remaining 75%. Academic advising, tutoring and other interactions among students, faculty and staff will occur electronically in most or all cases.

Class formats and modalities will make maximal use of remote options and we are ready to move all course sections and learning activities to 100% remote very quickly, as we did in March. Through webinars, Zoom-based consultations and other remote means we will continue to offer faculty/staff development opportunities that maximize proficiency and comfort with a broad range of virtual and electronic pedagogies. Individual faculty members are working with academic leaders and instructional specialists to address all needs for technology, personnel and other support.

Most or all of Cayuga’s online-asynchronous courses will continue in this format. Courses formerly taught face-to-face are being converted to various online-synchronous, hybrid-synchronous, and hybrid-asynchronous modalities.

Classroom Population Density

While many classes will remain in an online format, some sections will remain on campus. The physical layouts of every classroom, laboratory, meeting room, office, corridor and stairway are being reviewed, and many modified to minimize density of occupancy. Maximum occupancy of every space will be reduced by at least 50%. In many cases furniture is being moved or removed while specific protocols and practices are being refined to ensure a minimum of six feet between all persons at all times. Large assembly areas are being repurposed as low-density spread-out classrooms. Staggered facility-scheduling will further reduce density while providing blocks of time for frequent cleaning/sanitizing.Classroom space that will not be used will be locked.

Seating charts for every class will be developed, adhered to, and preserved to support subsequent contact tracing as needed. Similarly, attendance will be recorded in every class session.

Instructional and Research Laboratory Protocols

In addition to observing all of the precautions mentioned elsewhere in this document, we note that portions of laboratory classes that cannot be conducted remotely will maximize space between lab stations by closing some of them and spreading students out through use of additional facilities and staggered scheduling. As always, maximal safety precautions will be followed.

Restart Operations

  • The Capital Projects and Facilities Department completed the following in preparation for a re-opening.
  • Covid-19 decontamination in common areas and functional area suites and working spaces.
  • Disinfection of common areas and high touch areas
  • Deep cleaning of office areas and classrooms including the disinfection of carpets.
  • Inspection and repair of critical safety systems was completed
  • Fire and Life Safety systems were inspected, tested, and where necessary, repaired
  • Building ventilation systems were inspected, cleaned and filters changed
  • Due to lack of activity on campus, our water supply systems were flushed to ensure that your
    drinking water was free of sediment and other buildup.

Extracurricular activities including intramurals and student performances

Cayuga has eliminated and canceled any in-person extra-curricular activities, club-related activities, and student performances for the fall term. The College does not offer intramural sports. Any extra-curricular activities will be provided in virtual environments.

Regarding course-related activities, the following practices will generally be followed:

  • PPE will be issued to each student and faculty member who does not already have one
  • Instructions for cleaning and sanitizing instructional areas and items touched by faculty and students will be provided
  • Cleaning materials and specific instructions for cleaning will be provided
  • Social distancing guidelines will be implemented and maintained
  • During classroom instruction, faculty and students will be equipped with both face masks and face shields for identified activities that require close interaction where appropriate social distancing cannot be maintained

Vulnerable Populations

To allow vulnerable populations to safely participate in educational activities, the College will work to accommodate their specific circumstances.

Human resource policies will guide College actions for employees who may not feel comfortable returning to campus. Employees who seek an accommodation will be directed to contact Human Resources staff.

The CDC states that a person who has trouble breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the face mask without assistance should not wear a face mask or cloth face covering. If a person with a disability is not able to wear a face covering, the College will consider reasonable accommodations so that the person with the disability can participate in, or benefit from, the instruction and support offered by the College. The College will provide alternative ways to interact with faculty and staff remotely, either via interactive video, phone, or email.

Educational programs governed by accreditation and licensing bodies may require individuals to provide in person activities. In such cases, social distancing will be maintained to the extent possible, and PPE will be required.

Hygiene, Cleaning, and Disinfection

Cayuga has established campus-wide cleaning and disinfection protocols for classrooms, restrooms, and other facilities. Hand and respiratory hygiene among all individuals on campus will be encouraged and promoted.

Regular cleaning of office spaces and general campus areas will occur on a daily basis. For areas of high touch/high traffic, disinfecting and cleaning will occur more frequently, as advised by the CDC guidelines and using CDC approved cleaning materials. Cleaning logs will be implemented and posted within each area/space to track cleaning times. Sanitization stations will be available at various locations on campus and within office areas. Computer stations will be located near disinfectant spray and/or wipe stations so individuals can clean a station before and after use.

All campus public water fountains have been secured with the exception of those with no-touch sensor-operated water dispensing systems.

2. MONITORING INCLUDES POLICIES TO TRACK HEALTH CONDITIONS ON CAMPUS, INCLUDING:

Testing Responsibility

Cayuga Community College will continue its collaborative approach with the Cayuga County Health Department and the Oswego County Health Department and will coordinate communication of situational updates and testing availability. In addition, these Health Departments will continue to respond to COVID-19 by conducting contact tracing and monitoring of quarantined individuals. As guidance from the Governor’s Office and from the Central New York region changes, the College and the Counties will coordinate plans and evaluate the impact to College operations.

Testing Frequency and Protocols

Cayuga Community College will continue its collaborative approach with the Cayuga County Health Department and the Oswego County Health Department and will coordinate communication of situational updates and testing availability. In addition, these Health Departments will continue to respond to COVID-19 by conducting contact tracing and monitoring of quarantined individuals. As guidance from the Governor’s Office and from the Central New York region changes, the College and the Counties will coordinate plans and evaluate the impact to College operations.

Early Warning Signs

The College’s Office of Public Safety will monitor data provided by both the Oswego County and Cayuga County Health Departments to identify issues of concern or an increase on positive Covid-19 testing results. The Director of Public Safety will communicate issues of concern to College administration for changes in college protocol and college response.

The College, in consultation with local health departments, will define metrics that will serve as early warning signs that positive cases may be increasing beyond an acceptable level. The College will also work with health department staff to define methods to monitor against such metrics, including changes to negative screens, testing referrals, increases to the number of local positive cases, and feedback from the College community.

Tracing

Cayuga Community College has adopted the recommendations of the Oswego County Health Department and the Cayuga County Health Department for tracing and monitoring of suspected or confirmed cases of Covid-19. Cayuga Faculty will track classroom attendance during the semester in order to better trace with whom a campus community member has been in contact with. Both Cayuga and Oswego County Health Departments have assured Cayuga of their cooperation and support for tracing, monitoring and testing for suspected and confirmed cases of Covid-19.

Screening

Required daily screening will occur at one entry point on each campus. Using a designated entry point for all employees and students who enter campus with all other entrances closed, the College will screen individuals using a symptom surveillance system. Upon entry, employees and guests will respond to a screening survey and consent to a thermal temperature scan. Individuals who refuse or fail to pass the screening will be provided a handout with information and directed to leave campus.

  • If an employee is denied access to campus as a result of failing the screening, HR will be notified.
  • If a guest/contractor is denied access to campus as a result of failing the screening, the employer will be contacted.
  • Employees or guests who later experience COVID related symptoms while on campus should notify the scheduled screener and/or HR.

Individuals entering a campus will be recorded in a daily log and instructed to check out upon departure to ensure accurate tracking of people on campus. The College will work closely with local health departments to support contact tracing efforts.

3. CONTAINMENT PLANS SHOULD ADDRESS RESPONSE TO POSITIVE OR SUSPECTED CASES AS WELL AS PREVENTATIVE POLICIES AND PRACTICES, INCLUDING:

Isolation

Students will be directed to remain home when they have tested positive for, or are showing symptoms of COVID-19. This is the recommendation of the CDC as ‘best practice.’ Lattimore Hall staff will also follow CDC guidance to have students self-isolate or stay home. If that is not possible, Lattimore Hall staff will require self-isolation in one of their 1st Floor Quarantine Suites. Students who have recently had close contact with a person with COVID-19 will also be instructed to stay home and monitor their health.

The College has a food pantry on each campus. Food delivery services will be arranged for students residing in Lattimore Hall and in quarantine who cannot return home. The food pantry is currently coordinated by the College’s Coordinator of Wellness and Intervention Services, and is licensed to offer brief psychosocial support.

Quarantine

Although Cayuga Community College does not offer on-campus housing, it has a marketing arrangement with Lattimore Hall, a 97-bed facility for students in downtown Auburn, NY. Lattimore Hall staff have been in discussions with the Cayuga County Health Department, and will follow their recommendation as to whether students should go home with their families or self-isolate in one of their 1st Floor Quarantine Suites.

In addition, the College has a food pantry on each campus and will arrange for food delivery services for students residing in Lattimore Hall and in quarantine. The food pantry is currently coordinated by the College’s Coordinator of Wellness and Intervention Services, and is licensed to offer brief psychosocial support.

Students confirmed or suspected to have COVID-19

Although Cayuga does not offer on-campus housing, it’s partnership with Lattimore Hall will ensure adherence to federal, SUNY, state, and local guidelines regarding students awaiting test results and are in isolation, or have tested positive. Lattimore Hall staff will require self-isolation in one of their 1st Floor Quarantine Suites.

Hygiene, Cleaning, and Disinfection

Cayuga has established campus-wide cleaning and disinfection protocols for classrooms, residence halls, restrooms, dining halls and other facilities. Hand and respiratory hygiene among all individuals on campus will be encouraged and promoted.

Regular cleaning of office spaces and general campus areas will occur on a daily basis. For areas of high touch/high traffic, disinfecting and cleaning will occur more frequently, as advised by the CDC guidelines and using CDC approved cleaning materials. Cleaning logs will be implemented and posted within each area/space to track cleaning times. Sanitization stations will be available at various locations on campus and within office areas. Computer stations will be located near disinfectant spray and/or wipe stations so individuals can clean a station before and after use.

Disinfecting and cleaning will occur immediately upon notification of exposed areas.

Lattimore Hall staff have outlined specific procedures for cleaning and disinfecting exposed areas and for notifying residents and College staff.

Communication

The College utilizes its email system, Blackboard learning platform, web presence, RAVE Alert system, AdmitHub texting service, and media outlets to communicate plans and share protocols and safety measures taken by the College. Recently, an email was sent to all employees with the College’s Safety plan and a comprehensive list of frequently asked questions and answers related to our COVID-19 planning.

4. RETURN TO REMOTE OPERATIONS (“SHUTDOWN”) INCLUDES CONTINGENCY PLANS FOR RAMPING DOWN AND/OR CLOSING THE CAMPUS, INCLUDING:

Operational Activity

The College has implemented a continuity of operations plan with functional area-specific plans to move operations off campus. Each functional area has developed staffing, communication, and operational plans which allow for full operational capability to be conducted remotely. Plans to monitor campus critical systems (water, HVAC, wildlife,) have been fully developed and tested. The College has also developed security and access plans for campus facilities to restrict access to campus buildings. Those plans allow for tracing where on campus people have entered to allow for additional cleaning measures.

Move-Out

Cayuga administration and staff will work closely with Lattimore Hall staff to ensure safe departures for residents, and will make alternate arrangements for students who may not be able to depart campus quickly.

Communication
