CCC COVID-19 Protocol – March 11, 2020
Clovis Community College is committed to taking as many preventative measures as possible to prevent the exposure and/or the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The following internal protocol has been established:
Faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to wash their hands with soap and water regularly for a minimum of 20 seconds. Hand sanitizer will be placed in all classrooms and offices around campus (a national shortage exists so staff is working diligently to get this accomplished as soon as possible). Hand sanitizer should be used when soap and water are not available; however individuals should immediately wash their hands as soon as possible, and everyone should wash hands as often as possible.
Primary Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Faculty, staff, or students who experience any of these symptoms should contact their primary care physician or hospital immediately. Should an individual test positive for the COVID-19 virus, he/she must follow the protocol determined by medical officials and will include a minimum of 14-day isolation from CCC faculty, staff, and students.
Should any individual become symptomatic while:
If an individual tests positive for the COVID-19 virus, said individual is strongly encouraged to contact Human Resource Services at 575.769.4033 immediately. HRS personnel will work to determine individual’s interaction with CCC faculty, staff, and students in a confidential manner in order to assess the potential exposure and will act accordingly to ensure the safety of all individuals. If CCC encounters significant exposure to COVID-19, the determination for regular business operation will be evaluated with the guidance of the Department of Health.
The Department of Health is encouraging all individuals to not panic, but rather be proactive in terms of preventative measures. In order to minimize potential spread of the virus, if you feel symptomatic you are encouraged to contact 855.600.3453 or your primary doctor to gain assistance on risk assessment before you go to a local medical facility.

Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)
Clovis Community College is monitoring the coronavirus (2019-nCov) situation carefully and is taking proactive and prudent measures to ensure the health and safety of students and staff by following the guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
At this time, the College is not aware of any students, faculty, or staff who may have been exposed to the coronavirus.
It is important for the CCC community to know that while the CDC considers this to be a serious public health concern, based on current information, the immediate health risk to the general American public is considered low at this time. According to the CDC, this virus is NOT currently spreading in the community in the United States. Nonetheless, spring break season is near, and many CCC students, faculty, and staff may travel during that time. It is best to practice healthy habits, including frequent hand washing, covering your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, and avoiding contact with sick people. These measures will help protect against colds and the flu.
Updates will be provided on the Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) as they become available.
