II.R SICK STUDENT

Effective Date:

Policy: 

When confronted with students who present at CAPS with obvious medical illness (coughing, fever, chills, rash etc.) every effort is made to send the student home or to the Student Health Center for a medical evaluation.  If a student insists on being seen, or is in a crisis that necessitates an immediate psychological evaluation, the student is to be given a mask to limit the spread of airborne infection.  Masks should be available at the front desk at all times as well as available in college offices.  Staff are encouraged to wash hands thoroughly following any contact with an ill student and to disinfect any area they come in contact with. Phone consults are an option if the situation warrants it.
