COVID-19 How to Screen and Report

Illness Reporting

Any employee, supervisor or student who reports COVID-19 symptoms, receives a report of COVID-19 symptoms, feels that they may have been exposed to COVID-19, are pending COVID-19 test results or have a confirmed positive case of COVID-19 should notify the Director of Risk Management. Notification can be made by downloading this form, (you must download, not just open the form, to be able to type in the boxes and see the dropdown lists in the fields), completing, saving, and emailing the completed form to staggart@roguecc.edu and then follow the guidance of their healthcare provider and local public health department regarding treatment and self-isolation. Any employees or students deemed to be a close contact per county health guidelines will be contacted directly.

Employees that report sick for non-COVID-19 related illness need not report the nature of their illness to their supervisor. However, the supervisor must confirm whether sick employees have been in an RCC facility or involved in-person in RCC operations in the 48 hours prior to becoming sick.

  • If yes, the supervisor must ask whether the employee has COVID-19 symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath), is under investigation for COVID-19, or has been confirmed as COVID-19 positive.  Do not inquire regarding illnesses other than COVID-19.
     
  • If no, supervisors must not inquire regarding the nature of the illness. However, if an employee volunteers a COVID-19 status, document the fact that the disclosure was voluntary and that the employee has not been in an RCC facility or involved in in-person RCC operations in the 48 hours preceding COVID-19 status.
