SFCC Employee On Campus Protocol during COVID-19


Purpose & Understanding the Risk of COVID-19

Santa Fe Community College is committed to providing a safe and healthy learning space for students, staff, and community. Members of SFCC leadership are closely following COVID-19 developments and continue to follow guidance from local, state, and national levels.

Adhering to SFCC policies and procedures, New Mexico Department of Health and Center for Disease Control guidelines, and regulatory requirements is the best strategy to combat the risk of COVID-19. Every staff, student, faculty, and community member shares a responsibility in trying to maintain a healthy and safe environment at SFCC.

The information in this guide is intended to help employees understand their responsibilities and rights during the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic. As more information about COVID-19 is learned, guidance and recommendations will evolve. Similarly, the contents of this guide and SFCC policy will evolve, and the community will be updated of changes. If you are unclear, encountering a new situation, or have concerns, please ask your supervisor for clarification and guidance.
