RCC’s Commitment to Safe Campuses
This resource guide will help you plan your activities and understand changes brought to RCC in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. RCC is following guidelines from the U.S. Centers of Disease Control (CDC), the Virginia Department of Health(VDH), and state and local departments. We are guided by four key goals: safeguarding the health of students, faculty, staff, and the community; ensuring instruction continues; maintaining the College’s operations; and joining in the national effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. Please see our resources below on how to proceed safely:

COVIDWISE is the official Virginia Exposure Notification System (ENS) app. This free app is available to all Virginians at the Google App Store and Apple App Store. After downloading the app, you will be able to use your phone in the fight against COVID-19, without compromising your privacy or personal information.
The RCC community shares an accountability to one another to follow these safety steps for our own well-being and that of others.
1. Complete the Health Safety Agreement
All students are required to complete the Student Health Safety Agreement upon starting classes for the upcoming semesters to assure they understand their obligations in maintaining a safe environment when on campus.
Faculty & Staff
Likewise, all faculty and staff are required to complete the Faculty and Staff Health Safety Agreement that provides VCCS guidelines to ensure the health and well-being of everyone working, studying, and visiting our campuses.
2. Think Safety — Be Aware
Be sure to know your COVID-19 Community Level. Maintain social distance when possible and wash hands/sanitize often. People with symptoms, a positive test, exposure to someone with COVID-19, and in areas of HIGH Community Levels should follow CDC guidance on isolation and masking. Be kind to those who chose to wear a mask.
3. Self-Screen Daily
It is a requirement for all students and staff visiting the RCC campus to self-screen daily. Please complete a self-screening survey by clicking the button below or the link here to ensure the safety of fellow students and employees.
4. Report Any Exposures, Symptoms, or Positive Tests
If you have tested positive, or have had “Direct Contact” with someone showing COVID-19 symptoms, or someone who later tested positive for the coronavirus, you have a duty to report that you were exposed and provide when and which RCC campuses were visited. This information helps track and reduce the spread of the virus. Please use these two forms to report exposures or positive cases, submit online or via email to email@example.com:
5. Follow Travel Guidelines
To report upcoming non-RCC travel (required for employees) complete the Travel/Trip Notification Form online or via PDF. RCC follows the CDC’s travel guidelines. Please review and follow current RCC guidelines prior to travel. Please submit form online or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and notify your supervisor, no later than two weeks prior.
Contact to COVID-19 Advisory Team directly at email@example.com. We protect the privacy of students and employees who contact us via this email address.
