WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW.

Studying on Campus.
What it Means for You.

We are excited to welcome students on campus. The key to healthy and productive on-campus programs

Masks
Employees and students will wear masks at all times in public spaces and when 6 feet of physical distance cannot be maintained. Prescott College will supply each on-campus student and employee with one cloth PC branded mask.

Please visit these CDC sites for information on face coverings:

Hand Washing
During the COVID-19 pandemic washing your hands is one of the most effective ways to help prevent the spread.
Click for more information on the effectiveness of washing your hands for 20 seconds with soap and water.

Physical Distancing
One of the best tools we have to mitigate the potential spread of COVID-19 is by keeping space between you and others. The virus can be spread by individuals before they know they are sick and for that reason, it is important to maintain distance from others. Physical distancing should be practiced by all, especially to help protect those who are at a higher risk of getting sick. When on campus, everyone should follow these physical distancing practices:

For more information regarding Physical Distancing please check out this
Physical Distancing information from the CDC.

  • Stay at least 6 feet from other people at all times
  • Do not attend gatherings or large events
  • Avoid physical contact with one another
  • Avoid anyone who appears to be sick

If you have had direct contact with an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19 and you have been exposed or if you have tested positive for COVID-19, please complete the COVID-19 Self-report Form.

Campus Safety

Campus Signage
Prescott College has developed and will post signage to aid in mitigating the potential spread of COVID-19 from handwashing to capacity limits in campus spaces. Please adhere to the signage posted on campus.

Building Access
Building access restricted to Prescott College students and employees. Visitors to campus will need to make an appointment. Hand sanitation stations will be placed at the entrances to buildings and in high traffic flow areas

Vans
Students and employees utilizing vans for transportation during courses will wear face coverings while seated next to each other. Vans will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected between uses with approved products.

Structural Mitigation

Cafe Services
Cafe services will be provided with take-out service available. There will be no buffet-style options and outdoor seating will be arranged to ensure physical distancing.

Classrooms
When possible, Prescott College classes will maximize opportunities to hold classes outside. Indoor classrooms have been physically arranged to maintain 6 feet of distancing, disinfecting, and cleaning protocols are aligned with the CDC and facilities replaced our HVAC filters to an enhanced filter standard that removes much smaller particles including 75% that are in the range of air-borne viruses. In addition to these protocols, each class offered in the block will have its own classroom to itself.

Community and Mental Health Wellbeing

Contact Tracing and Testing
When necessary, the college’s medical advisor will work with the institution to provide testing and contact tracing. Students may be tested prior to participating in courses and as advised by CDC regulations
