Campus level Contract - Tracing form
 

Dear Eagles,

As we prepare for the start of classes on Monday, we wanted to provide you with some information regarding reporting of, and responding to, COVID-19 cases or exposures in the workplace and classroom.  

 

Reporting Protocols for LA Mission College

Any LAMC employee who receives a communication from another individual (employee or student) who reports a COVID-19 incident relating to testing positive, testing positive for antibodies, suspected COVID-19 based on CDC-published symptoms, or exposure to individuals/situations of COVID-19 infection, must immediately report the incident to my office (parkerr@lamission.edu) with the individual’s LACCD identification number. If the individual is an employee include the employee’s work location. If the communication was through email/Canvas, please forward that communication as well. The attached contact tracing form must be also filled out and sent to me (parkerr@lamission.edu) as soon as possible but no later than within 24 hours of when a COVID-19 incident was reported.

 

Initial Response to Person Reporting COVID-19 Symptoms

Please give the following information/instructions:

  1. Immediately return home to self-monitor and quarantine for 10 days
  2. Get tested at any LA County Public Health test site immediately
  3. Call your doctor/healthcare provider for further direction
  4. Continue to monitor symptoms between 11 to 14 days and seek care if symptoms escalate
  5. Keep in contact with your instructor/supervisor with updates on your condition
  6. Make arrangements for any class/work accommodations if needed
  7. Seek medical attention immediately if you are having difficulty breathing or keeping fluids down

 

Initial Response to Person Reporting COVID-19 Exposure

Individuals who are known to have had CLOSE CONTACT (within six feet of the patient for a total of 15 minutes or more within a 24 hour period) with a person presumed or confirmed to have COVID-19 are to be sent home immediately to self-monitor and quarantine for 10 days following the last contact with the person.  NOTE: Persons with a confirmed exposure who are either 1) fully vaccinated and have no symptoms OR 2) have already recovered from laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 within the last 90 days, are exempt from quarantining or testing for COVID-19. However, these persons should still self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 for 14 days following the exposure.

  • For Employees:
    • If this person is an employee, quarantine leaves related to COVID-19 will be applied for up to 14 days. During the quarantine leave, no employee shall go into less than full paid status if illness days are insufficient to cover the leave period.
    • If employees or family members become symptomatic, they are to immediately seek medical treatment and notify their supervisor as soon as reasonably possible.
    • If the employee was in a location that the person presumed to have or confirmed to have COVID-19 had visited and there was no close contact or prolonged exposure, the employee need only self-monitor.
    • If the employee had contact with a coworker who has been told to quarantine due to close contact with a person presumed/confirmed COVID-19, the employee need only self-monitor.
  • For Students:
    • Immediately home isolate for 10 days
    • Get tested at any LA County Public Health test site immediately
    • Call your doctor/healthcare provider for further direction
    • Continue to monitor symptoms closely and seek care if symptoms escalate
    • Keep in contact with your instructor/supervisor with updates on your condition
    • Make arrangements for any class/work accommodations if needed
    • Seek medical attention immediately if you are having difficulty breathing or keeping fluids down

 

Please let me know if you have any questions, and thank you for all that you do to support our students.
