Employees – COVID-19

Disinfecting Protocols

  • All high touch surfaces including door handles/knobs/push plates/bars, handrails, light switches, toilet seats, toilet partitions, sinks, counters, bathroom fixtures, soap and paper towel dispensers, and water fountains are being sanitized by janitorial services every night and our Facilities staff twice daily. 

Recommended by the CDC: 

  • Wear disposable gloves when cleaning and disinfecting surfaces. Gloves should be discarded after each cleaning. If reusable gloves are used, those gloves should be dedicated for cleaning and disinfection of surfaces for COVID-19 and should not be used for other purposes.  
  • Sanitize surfaces and objects that are touched often, such as desks, countertops, doorknobs, light switches, sinks, and hands-on learning items, by spraying the surface with the disinfectant provided and drying the surface with paper towel. 
  • Sanitize computer keyboards, computer mice, manufacturing equipment, and electronic equipment that cannot be sprayed by using the provided sanitizing towels. If sanitizing towels aren’t available, spray disinfectant on paper towels for the same purpose. 
  • Clean hands immediately after surfaces have been cleaned.  
  • Each business day at 1:00pm, employees are reminded via the broadcast function on office/classroom telephones to clean commonly used areas around their workspace using the Disinfecting Protocol. The Protocol will be displayed in each room being used, and cleaning supplies will be available for these spaces.

Faculty Resources

For each week of instruction that is transitioned to Moodle, one unit should appear with the following information: 

  • Individual class dates replaced by online instruction 
  • Learning outcomes for the unit 
  • Resources (readings, videos, etc.) for the unit 
  • Assignments and evaluation methods (including due dates) for the unit 

South Piedmont Community College has infrastructure in place to support eLearning. Moodle, a learning management system where course sites are located, can be accessed through your web browser (Firefox is recommended). Each course at South Piedmont has an associated Moodle course site that is automatically created.

Interactive learning objects are mapped to the NCCCS courses. The NCLOR reduces duplication of effort associated with course development; and resources are integrated and accessible through Blackboard and Moodle.

The database contains electronic medical textbooks; journals, and current articles on allied health, nursing, dental, and emergency services.

Virtual Computing Environment (VCE) 

  • This collaborative project of the North Carolina Community College System and NC State University allows individual community colleges to provide computer lab services through cloud computing and to achieve cost efficiency for software and hardware. The VCE business model provides community colleges a cost-effective alternative to expensive, traditional computer labs. Selection is determined through an annual application process. 

Telework Guidelines

To keep our employees, students, and other stakeholders safe, we are minimizing face-to-face contact whenever possible. As such, we have a temporary teleworking agreement on our SharePoint site for employees. Any teleworking agreement must be discussed with and approved by your supervisor prior to commencement. To maintain college operations, certain roles may need to be present at their work sites at some point in time. Employees must complete a Campus Access Form on Sharepoint when working from SPCC locations. Some roles do not have duties that can be performed off-site which may lead to these employees taking leave per our current policies or through other arrangements determined by college administration.  

Your compensation and benefits will not change while teleworking. Work hours and leave scheduling must conform to the College’s regular business practices. Requests to work overtime or use leave time must be approved by your supervisor in the same manner as when working at a customary SPCC worksite.   

The college will grant leave similar to the Office of State Human Resources State of Emergency Leave Provisions 1 , Provisions 2 and Provisions 3 in appropriate circumstances.   

As conditions change related to directives, employee performance, or ability to work remotely, the college will re-evaluate existing teleworking arrangements. The following categories will be determined through conversations between employees, their supervisors, and Human Resources. 

  • Employees who can telework and still maintain college operations for which they are responsible will submit a temporary telework request form through their supervisor. The work schedule and strategies will be developed in partnership between the employee and their immediate supervisor.  If anything should change regarding an employee’s situation, health status, and/or the ability to work remotely the employee should inform their immediate supervisor and Human Resources. 
  • Non-exempt staff should continue to record hours worked on their normal monthly timesheets, take 30-minute meal breaks at a minimum, and request approval from supervisors regarding overtime. 
  • Exempt staff and instructional staff should record hours worked on the temporary telework log.  This does not apply to curriculum faculty.
  • Participants of the wellness program may continue to record wellness hours on the wellness activity log while teleworking
  • Employees who are at higher risk due to ongoing health conditions are allowed to establish telework schedule and strategies with their immediate supervisor. If the employee’s current job duties cannot be accomplished via teleworking, alternate duties (important for maintaining college operations) may be assigned as needed during teleworking period. The employee may also take leave according to policy. 

Employees who are unable to physically report for work due to COVID-19 impacted closure of public K-12 schools and have no accessible childcare are allowed to establish telework alternate schedule strategies with their immediate supervisor. If the employee’s current job duties cannot be accomplished via teleworking, alternate duties (important for maintaining college operations) may be assigned as needed during teleworking period. The employee may also take leave according to policy. 

The college leadership will work with employees to develop a rotating skeleton crew (social distancing) as necessary to keep college spaces open as essential to maintain college operations. 

Make-up work may be assigned by the immediate supervisor. This make-up work must meet college operation needs and should be scheduled as timely as possible. The assigned plan and documentation of the made-up work must be provided to the respective division Vice-President. The Vice-President will approve the plan prior to its execution and should promptly receive the documentation of made-up time. 

Any employee work schedule changes that are not met by the above provisions shall be submitted to the President’s office for further consideration. 

Travel

  • All college-affiliated travel is prohibited except for travel to SPCC locations and to SPCC-affiliated off-site locations that continue to host services and programs. 
  • For personal travel, full-time and part-time faculty and staff should continue to complete the Travel Form located under the Personal Travel tab on SharePoint as notification to Human Resources about any upcoming travel OR to document travel within the last two weeks outside of Anson and Union Counties. 

Virtual Contact and Meeting information

During the time we are teleworking due to COVID-19, our students, employees, and other stakeholders must be able to contact us through our college extensions, and our meetings will be conducted virtually.  

The best way to have virtual meetings is through Skype. All users, employees and students, have access to Skype through O365. Employees that have permanent SPCC issued laptops should have the Skype client installed. The Skype client does not have to be installed to participate in a meeting.
