Personal Safety Guidelines for Centenary Community Members and Guests
All Centenary community members and guests must adhere to all of the following personal safety guidelines while on campus:
- Symptom monitoring: All students, employees, and guests are required to review and complete a COVID-19 self-checker each day before arriving on campus. We recommend downloading the CDC app which includes a self-checker, or you can fill out the symptom self-checker on the Centenary website at centenary.edu/covid19. You may be required to show proof of completion and/or receive a temperature check before receiving campus services or instruction.
- Masks: Wearing a mask is required any time you are in the presence of others on campus (examples: attending an in-person meeting, class, or other gathering). Wearing a mask is not required if you are alone in a personal space (example: your office, your car, outside campus spaces). Please follow CDC guidelines on correct usage for masks and other face coverings.
- Social distancing: Social distancing of a minimum of six feet should be maintained at all times and in all spaces on campus.
- Hand washing and sanitizing: Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds after touching door handles, light switches, stair railings, office equipment, and any other high-traffic surfaces. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, mouth, or mask with unwashed hands. Keep hand sanitizer available for times when hand washing is not available or practical.
- Travel and Self-Quarantine: All Centenary-sponsored business travel is currently discontinued unless deemed critical for recruitment or fundraising. Employees should consult their Cabinet member for these exceptions. For approved business travel, complete the self-checker for symptoms and follow COVID-19 hygiene recommendations. If traveling to a CDC identified hotspot, self-quarantine (work from home) for 14 days or provide a doctor’s note clearing you to return. Any personal travel (any travel beyond a 100 mile radius of your residence) should be conducted in strict accordance with CDC guidance, but if you travel to a COVID-19 hotspot you will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days or provide a doctor’s note clearing you to return.
