NEOSHO, Mo – Crowder College develops a plan to keep students and faculty safe from COVID-19 during their Fall 2020 semester.

Press Release

On August 17, 2020, we will begin the Fall 2020 Semester. The following plan has been developed to make all individuals associated with
Crowder College aware of the policies and procedures develop with one goal in mind – to provide a safe educational environment for all.

ACTIONS COMMON FOR ALL EMPLOYEES, STUDENTS, AND VISITORS TO CAMPUS:

In keeping with the Crowder College Mission of building a civil, serving, literate, learning community of responsible citizens, we must do our part to
slow the spread of COVID-19 in our communities. Based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendation, when social distancing
measures are unable to be maintained, we have the expectation that all employees, students, and visitors to campus will wear face coverings on all
Crowder College campus sites. In our school facilities (such as commons areas, hallways, and classrooms) where a distance of six feet between
individuals cannot be met, all individuals should wear a mask for your safety and the safety of others.

1. The following business/social operations should be followed:

• Social distancing (6 feet of separation) should be followed when achievable.

• When social distancing measures are unable to be maintained, we have the expectation that all employees, students, and

visitors to campus will wear face coverings.

• Modify physical workspaces to maximize social distancing.

• Clean and disinfect “high-touch” surfaces and items each day.

• Virtual meetings or phone calls should be utilized as much as possible.

2. The following health safety practices should be followed by all:

• If you feel sick, you should stay home.

• Wash hands with soap and water and/or using a hand sanitizer.
