COVID-19 Guidelines

We have been practicing social distancing in the office and working from home sometimes.
As we prepare to reopen our classroom sites, safety is a primary concern for everyone.
We should take appropriate measures to protect both our students and ourselves. Maintaining
proper hygiene and site cleanliness will help protect individuals and help prevent further spread
of the disease.

Cleaning your facilities-guides and tips

  1. General hand washing is still a major component of stopping the spread. Even when using
    gloves, washing your hands with warm water for 20 seconds at a minimum is integral.
  2. To clean surfaces, wearing gloves, use soap and water to clean, and then use disinfectant.
    Routinely clean frequently touched surfaces- tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops,
    handles, railings, desks, phones, instruments, toilets, faucets, sinks… The initial cleaning of the
    sites won’t require any extra effort than the normal needed cleaning between semesters.
    Disinfecting between classes and nightly will be necessary.
  3. Wear masks at all times you are in the building.
  4. Limit touch points. Have only essential equipment available. Consider having one person
    opening the main door, and not having unnecessary signage or decorations that might encourage
    interaction.
  5. Avoid having people congregating indoors. This gives them more opportunity to touch things,
    meaning more things that will need to be cleaned, among posing a risk of being a place where
    germs can be shared. Avoid having people loitering before and after classes for the same reason.
  6. Try to have air circulating through the site, if possible. Open windows, doors, etc. to
    discourage stagnant air from accumulating.

Reducing Risk in classrooms

  1. Encourage students to wear masks during class time.
  2. Do not have students share equipment or materials if possible. Do not pass materials around
    the classroom. The instructor will hand out materials needed for class.
  3. Maintain social distancing guidelines in the class as possible.
  4. Maintain cleaning supplies in the classroom (disinfecting wipes, tissues, bleach water/paper
    towels…)
  5. Limit having students bring things from home.
  6. If you are sick/ showing symptoms, stay home.

Cleaning solution guidelines

  1. If you have to make a cleaning solution, use a concentration of 1/3 cup of bleach for every
    gallon of water. The temperature of the water isn’t important. It will be effective if hot, warm, or
    cold. If in a bucket, make fresh daily. If in spray bottles, refill bottles as needed.
  2. Do not have more than two towels in sanitizing buckets. Make sure towels are completely
    submerged in solution between cleanings.
  3. When wiping down surfaces, leave the surface slightly damp to allow the disinfectant to work.
    Always follow the cleaning product’s recommendations for use.

Registration Day/ First Day of Classes

Have registration forms and all necessary paperwork together and ready to go on a clip board for
families. Have a minimum of five clip boards. Families can fill out the paperwork and bring it back
into the office to avoid having lines inside the building. Wipe down clipboard and restock with
forms between uses. If needed, have families form lines outside the site, maintaining social
distancing guidelines.

This list is not exhaustive. These points should be implemented into our actions going forward
and encourage other ideas and practices to keep everyone safe. Every site is different, and
procedures will need to be adjusted as situations arise.
