The following procedures shall be used whenever there is a report on campus by an individual who believes they have been infected by or exposed to COVID-19.
These procedures are based on guidance from the CDC and information from the State of Hawai‘i Department of Health (DOH) to screen for, manage, and prepare for a confirmed positive COVID-19 case appearing on University campuses.
Members of the Windward Community College community, including employees and students, as well as contractors working on campus, who:
- have tested positive for COVID-19;
- are suspected of having COVID-19 based on their symptoms, travel history, orhistory of prolonged contact (exposure) with an individual who tested positive forCOVID-19, among other indicators; or
- are subject to quarantine
must inform either their instructor, counselor, supervisor, or a WCC administrator of their health condition. WCC employees who are made aware of a situation shall immediately inform the campus point of contact (POC).
All reports received will remain confidential. The case will be managed in conjunction with the DOH and the UH System, as necessary. Efforts taken will be based upon ensuring that the campus and the general public have the necessary information to keep themselves safe.
