Individuals with concerns about wearing a face covering due to a disability should contact the appropriate office.

COVID-19 Testing Options.

      • Covid.gov/tests: Free at-home tests are offered by the federal government. We recommend that you order your free at-home tests, prior to needing them, through the covid.gov website.
      • Other testing options may be sought at testokc.com.

Hand Washing and Hygiene. The primary method of cleaning your hands is by washing them with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. The alternate method of cleaning your hands is with a hand sanitizing solution with an appropriate level of alcohol content (60% ethanol or 70% isopropanol).

All employees are encouraged to wash or sanitize their hands after completing the following actions:

      • After donning and doffing a mask,
      • After utilizing the restroom,
      • After using tissues with a sneeze or cough,
      • After touching their face, and
      • At least once every half-hour when dealing in transactions (monetary, documents, etc.)

Temperature Checks. If temperature checks are deemed necessary for an event or gathering, the following guidance is to be followed:

      1. All temperature checks shall be conducted with an infrared touchless thermometer.
      2. A mask or face covering must be worn by the individual taking the temperature and the individual whose temperature is being taken.
      3. Directions for the thermometer must be understood by the individual taking the temperature.
      4. Temperature Guidelines:
        1. If the initial reading is below 100.4 °F, the individual shall be permitted to enter.
        2. If the initial reading is above 100.4° F, the individual assessed shall sit down and rest to ensure ambient temperatures are not affecting the reading. The individual shall rest for five minutes
        3. A second reading shall be conducted. If the temperature is above 100.4° F, the individual assessed shall sit down and rest to ensure ambient temperatures are not affecting the reading. The individual shall rest for 3 minutes
        4. A third and final reading shall be conducted. If the temperature is above 100.4° F, the individual shall be asked to leave and return once symptoms have subsided.

Recommended Self-Monitoring After Exposure. Prior to arriving on campus, please conduct a wellness check looking for the following symptoms:

      • Fever,
      • Cough,
      • Shortness of breath,
      • Chills,
      • Muscle or body aches,
      • New loss of taste or smell,
      • Sore Throat,
      • Nausea or vomiting, and/or
      • Diarrhea.

If employees exhibit any of the preceding signs or symptoms and they cannot be attributed to any other illness or chronic conditions, consider getting tested (3-5 days post exposure) or staying home.

 

Requests for disposable KN-95 Masks. Requests for KN-95 shall be made through the Operations Help Desk, found on the campus intranet (http://www-int.rose.edu/). If a resupply is immediately needed, create a help desk request as normal and contact the Operations department immediately afterward (405-733-7434 or extension 7434).
