How to report Coronavirus (Covid19)

When to report? IMMEDIATELY for any of the following conditions

  • As soon as you are notified that you had a potential exposure.
  • If you are asymptomatic but decide to test, report as soon as you get a positive diagnosis.

DO NOT:

  • Wait until you test for COVID-19 to report.

  • Do not automatically return to campus, if a negative test result.

We are confident in our cleaning procedures but letting us know if you’ve been on campus while sick will allow us to apply extra steps to those spaces which have been exposed.

We all want to be back on campus as soon as possible, and we miss having the energy and engagement of all of our community being here together. With that in mind, as we reemerge from the restrictions the pandemic has imposed on us all, we have developed the following guidance:

  • Faculty, staff, and student safety are of the utmost importance
  • Maricopa and CDC guidelines will be followed as closely as possible
  • PVCC will operate with flexibility and patience as changes occur
  • Delivery of the highest quality course content and student and academic support services to ensure semester-to-semester continuity
  • Successful completion of the semester so students achieve intended goals: completion, persistence, university transfer, high school graduation, employment, work requirements, etc.
  • A variety of teaching modalities based on student success measures
  • Enrollment practices, with hybrid options, to support students
  • Ensuring each workspace upholds necessary safe space work conditions
