Contact Tracing

It is required that all members of the WSCC community engage in and cooperate with contact tracing as requested by the Ohio Department of Health and the Marietta/Belpre City Health Department. Please follow this flow chart to better understand if/when you need to quarantine, based on your vaccination status. WSCC will also notify individuals of potential exposure based on our contact tracing efforts as we receive reports of positive cases through the online report referenced above.

WSCC Process

  •  WSCC will work with the health department in which the student/employee resides to support their efforts in contact tracing
    •  The health department will work to identify individuals that have been exposed to the infected individual using the following exposure guidelines:
      •  Two days before positive test result or symptoms appear
      •  Within 6 feet of the individual for more than 15 minutes
  •  Employees should not discuss the situation with employees/students.
  •  Faculty members are asked to create/maintain a seating chart for classes in which 6 ft. between students is not possible.
  •  While the student is in isolation/quarantine, faculty members are asked to:
    •  Help the student complete his/her work remotely (if possible), or
    •  Create a plan to make-up coursework when the student returns to class, or
    •  Implement a plan for an “incomplete” grade.
