Coronavirus (COVID-19) Student FAQ

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Student FAQ

Fairmont State University continues to work on safely bringing students back to our campuses to begin the fall 2020 semester, fully engaged in the classroom, laboratory, clinical, experiential, extramural, and co-curricular environments. Yes, things will be a little different but the same Falcon spirit will remain.

Our Emergency Management team continues to work closely with the Marion County Health Department, West Virginia National Guard, and the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources to create policies and guidelines that will help to keep our campus community safe.

Throughout this process of preparation and implementation, our decisions continue to be guided by public health guidelines and the health, safety, and well-being of our students, faculty, staff, and communities. As a result, the University may modify policies and procedures to ensure that the most recent guidance from federal, state, and local officials are being met. Continue to monitor this page for up-to-date information.

Please review the below Student FAQ for answers to many commonly asked questions.

HEALTHY CAMPUS ENVIRONMENT

Will Fairmont State require all faculty, staff, students, and visitors to wear face coverings or masks while on campus?

As mandated by the State of West Virginia, masks must be worn while in all buildings. Further, Fairmont State will require all faculty, staff, students, and visitors to wear face coverings while on any of Fairmont State’s campuses, or during any University sanctioned event when social distancing cannot occur. Face coverings will be required at all times when in the classroom and in all public spaces.

Will the University provide face coverings or PPE?

Faculty, staff, and students will receive a welcome back kit that contains a cloth mask and refillable hand sanitizer. Hand sanitizing stations and sanitizing refill stations will be placed across campus.

What consequences do students face if they refuse to wear a mask or face covering on campus?

Failure of students to comply with the University’s Student Code of Conduct regarding personal protective equipment (PPE), such as masks and face coverings, will result in one or more of the following measures: written warning, removal from class, probation, suspension and/or expulsion from the University. Students will have an opportunity to provide information about any extenuating circumstances that may apply. Consequences will be based on the specifics of each student’s situation. 

What if I have a medical accommodation that says I am not able to wear a mask at all times?

Students with a disability who are unable to wear a mask may request a reasonable modification to the University’s mandatory mask policy. To begin this process, students should contact the Office of Accessibility Services at access@fairmontstate.edu to schedule an appointment. Students will be required to provide documentation that verifies they meet the ADA definition of a person with a disability (i.e., a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities) and describes the needed modification. Reasonable modifications may include the use of a face shield, curbside pick-up, online participation in programming as well as others. Students with questions may contact Amy Snively in the Office of Accessibility Services at Amy.Snively@fairmontstate.edu or (304) 333-3661

Are face shields a suitable alternative to a mask?

It is not known if face shields provide any benefit as source control to protect others from the spray of respiratory particles. CDC does not recommend the use of face shields for normal everyday activities or as a substitute for masks. Some people may choose to use a face shield when sustained close contact with other people is expected. If face shields are used without a mask, they should wrap around the sides of the wearer’s face and extend to below the chin. Disposable face shields should only be worn for a single use. Reusable face shields should be cleaned and disinfected after each use. Plastic face shields for newborns and infants are NOT recommended.

Will temperature checks be done at entrances to buildings, offices, classrooms, etc.?

Temperature checks will not be part of the everyday campus experience for most faculty, staff and students. Some units with unique risks associated with their operations, such as Dining Services, may establish more stringent access controls, including daily temperature checks and health status questionnaires before reporting to work.

What protocols are being put in place on campus to observe physical distancing?

Floor markers are being placed around campus in high traffic and common areas. Directional signage intended to encourage physically distanced traffic flow and building entry is being installed on campus. Separate entries and exits will be used for higher traffic areas. All physical distancing protocols will be adhered to, when possible.

Will Plexiglass guards be installed to create safe barriers in any area that requires or encourages close interaction?

The Fairmont State Emergency Management team is currently assessing limited areas on campus where plexiglass-like guards may be installed.

How often will cleaning be done on campus?

Custodial services will continue to clean each day. High-touch areas such as door handles, light switches, furniture, student desks, tables, and railings — will first be cleaned and then sprayed with an electrostatic disinfectant spray approved to kill the virus by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). High-touch areas and public restrooms in densely populated buildings will receive extra cleaning throughout the day with an approved disinfectant. 

What cleaning measures will be taken in communal spaces?

Seating will be limited or arranged to allow for social distancing. Signage will be placed around campus to direct heavy traffic areas and encourage physical distancing. Hand sanitizer dispensers will be placed in most campus buildings, with a priority on common areas like public entrances and elevator lobbies. Across campus, cleaning will be increased in classrooms and common areas. An electrostatic disinfectant spray will be used to clean and disinfect large, high-traffic areas and classrooms.

Are there guidelines for in-person gatherings?
The guidelines for in-person gatherings are:

  • No more than 25 people may gather in one place at any time
  • Try to keep in-person gatherings as small as possible 
  • MUST practice safe social distancing (6 feet) 
  • A face covering is REQUIRED when within 6 feet of other people or a shared space 
  •  MUST use gloves/sanitizer if you plan on touching anything others may have also come into contact with 
  • No shared or self-serve sources of food and/or utensils shall be permitted

How is the University managing student COVID-19 cases?
Fairmont State has created a COVID-19 Task Force comprised of individuals from the emergency management team, student affairs, student health, student conduct, and IT. The task force works closely with the local health departments to continually monitor active COVID-19 cases on campus based on testing information and self-reports. 

A representative from Student Health or the Student COVID Liaison will be in continuous communication with all students who have tested positive for COVID-19 or are in quarantine. Additionally, Counseling Services will be alerted to assist students during this time. The Student COVID Liaison will work to inform faculty members if a student will miss in-person class because of a COVID-related event or a self-report of illness. 

How is it not against HIPAA for people to be notified if someone tests positive?

Students, faculty and staff will be notified privately by the local health department if they test positive. Those identified as a close contact will be notified they have been exposed, but no personal, identifying information will be given.

How will we know how COVID-19 is affecting the University community as the semester progresses?

Our public health partners will work with our COVID Task Force in identifying the number of positive cases and potential spread of the virus in the community. That information will inform the actions the University must take to keep campus safe. You can follow Fairmont State’s COVID-19 testing results on the campus testing results dashboard— www.fairmontstate.edu/covid19 . 

What is going to happen when the flu and COVID-19 are here at the same time?

We recommend that students and staff receive the influenza vaccine to help prevent infection this flu season. The recommendations of wearing masks, social distancing, hand washing and proper hygiene will also aid in the prevention of other illnesses.

Why is it safe for faculty to come back but not all students?

We have taken significant precautions to keep our faculty and students as safe as possible within the classroom, including Plexiglas barriers, physical distancing and mask/face covering requirements. In addition, we’ve provided faculty with guidelines to assure that all students are following the necessary protocols. We understand that this situation is not ideal, but we know the importance of in-person instruction.  We are doing everything we can to continue that instruction.

FALL 2020 COURSE DELIVERY AND CLASSROOM EXPERIENCE

What physical distancing protocols will be put in place in classrooms?

At the Marion County Health Department's recommendation and by recent Proclamation from the Office of the Governor, everyone is required to wear a face-covering while in the classroom and inside of all campus buildings. Social distancing will also be observed where possible. Cleaning supplies in the form of a refillable spray bottle of cleaning solution and a microfiber cloth will be located in each classroom and lab.

What will be done about the new “social distancing” rules? Will the classes be downsized and will there be more times offered for each class? 

Per the Marion County Health Department guidance and by recent Proclamation from the Office of the Governor, when face coverings are worn, social distancing in the classrooms is not necessary.  Fairmont State has acted and will continue to act with an abundance of caution; therefore, our deans and provost are working with the Emergency Management Team to review and establish other appropriate safety protocols, including seating plans and layouts for classrooms and labs. The University will continuously update its procedures to ensure it observes and implements the most up-to-date information to protect students, faculty, staff, and the community.

What cleaning measures will be taken in classrooms? Will classrooms be cleaned after each class?

Spray bottles containing CorrectPac Germicidal Cleaner disinfectant and microfiber cleaning cloths (custodial staff will collect these at the end of the day, replace with a clean one, and they will be laundered on-site), approved by the CDC, will be placed in all classrooms. Masks will be required by all faculty, staff, students when in the classroom. Faculty may develop seating plans and layouts for classrooms and labs to allow for physical distancing where possible. Custodial cleaning and sanitization will be conducted daily, at a minimum. In addition to nightly cleaning, the cloths may be used if a faculty member wishes to clean their area between classes. The Safety Data Sheet for the disinfectant does not indicate personal protective equipment or any hazards as defined by OSHA HAZCOM for the diluted solution, which is what is in the spray bottles in classrooms. If a faculty member wishes to clean their area between classes, they should use the disinfectant as indicated on the bottle, spraying the cleaner on the cloth and then wiping the surface. The SDS does say, like with any cleaning product, wash hands with soap and water if the product contacts the skin, always observe good personal hygiene measures such as washing hands with soap and water after handling the product, and wash hands with soap and water before eating and/or drinking.

Will there be any shields in between the faculty and the students?

Plexiglass guards will be installed in limited common areas on campus where needed. At this time, there is not a plan to use them in classrooms because face coverings will be required in the classroom and at all times.

As an instructor, how will I know if students are missing class due to a potential COVID-19 exposure or event?

Faculty will receive a form email from the COVID-19 Student Liaison informing them that a student is unable to attend class due to a COVID-19 related matter or event and will not be back in class for at least XX days. Faculty should work with these students to develop alternative plans to allow for continued progress in the class until they physically return.

This email is not confirmation that there has been an exposure to faculty and/or other students.  The associated County Health Department will be in contact with those people identified as being “secondarily exposed.”  Please continue to conduct class as currently structured until further notice. 

If one student in a class tests positive, will all students in the class have to quarantine? 

Only those who have been within close contact of a person who tests positive will be asked to quarantine. This request will come from the associated Health Department via a contact tracing investigation.

A close contact includes:

  • Having been within 6 feet of someone diagnosed with COVID-19 for a period of at least 15 minutes in any environment, regardless of the use of face coverings or masks; or,
  • Living in the same household as a person with COVID-19,
  • Caring for a sick person with COVID-19, or
  • Being in direct contact with secretions from a person with COVID-19 (e.g., being coughed on, kissing, sharing utensils, etc.) 

Who came up with the definition of a close contact?

Fairmont State follows the guidance provided by the CDC on the definition of close contacts.

How will course requirements be met when a student has to quarantine/self-isolate for possibly a week at a time, in multiple instances?

It is the expectation that during the next academic year, all course material necessary to meet the course learning goals will be available to students in the event of a mandated quarantine or isolation. Even in quarantine or isolation, a student will be able to keep up with class content, as well as any class requirements. Synchronous, live broadcasts of all classes will be available to all students.  It is further expected that all classes will be recorded. Communication with instructors is key to continued success within the course, so all  students should keep their instructors informed of any situation that may impact class attendance.

Do I have to attend my classes in-person or can I choose to attend virtually? added 7/29

We understand that some students may not feel comfortable attending classes on campus this semester. Please contact your advisor who can help you with your schedule to see what options there may be to enroll in online classes. Once you have made any available schedule changes, please contact each of your faculty members teaching your on campus courses. They will be able to tell you the format that their course will take and the requirements for in-person class attendance. While most of our faculty will be live streaming and/or recording class sessions there will be some expectation to attend the class in person throughout the semester. Faculty will be available via email beginning August 3 and you can find faculty contact information in our campus directory at www.fairmontstate.edu/directory. Fairmont State is here to help you continue your educational journey. Keep in mind that our add/drop period runs through our first week of classes, so you should have plenty of time to modify your schedule and make any needed arrangements.

Under what circumstances would Fairmont State go entirely online? Under what circumstances would Fairmont State send students home?

University administration is working closely with local health department and public health officials to track infection positivity rates nationally and statewide. All decisions will be based on data and on information received from health officials.  The University will communicate with its community as information is made available.

Fairmont State is continuously monitoring the following indicators:

  • Percentage of tests that are positive.
  • County-specific incidence rates of COVID-19.
  • County-specific R-naught values (tracks the rate of transmission.)
  • Information on hospitalizations and hospital capacity.

This information will be regularly provided to University leadership to continually assess our local situation so appropriate decisions are made and communicated in a timely basis. 

CAMPUS LIFE, FACILITIES AND FEES

Is the Falcon Center food service going to be open this year?

Will the library be open for computer labs and places to study?

Yes, with social distancing, face coverings, and other safety protocols.

I have heard some universities will be adding a COVID-19 fee to their students' charges for the fall, is Fairmont implementing a similar fee? 

At this time, Fairmont State has not implemented and has not planned to implement a fee identified as a COVID-19 fee.  In fact, understanding the various hardships many of our students face as a result of the pandemic, Fairmont State University chose not to increase tuition or fees for the 2020-2021 calendar year.

Will there be a reduction in tuition for online class schedules?

No, there will not be a reduction in tuition, as students will continue to receive quality instruction and will be earning college credit toward commencement.  In addition, Fairmont State University did not increase tuition for this academic year in an effort to provide as much support to returning and new students.

HOUSING AND RESIDENCE LIFE

When can I move into Housing?

All housing students will receive communication, via their Fairmont State email address, regarding the modified move-in process. Students will sign-up to move personal items into their assigned residence hall room and then return home. Students will sign-up and participate in this Drop-n-Go system as follows:

  • First-time-freshmen from July 31-August 5. Freshmen may return to stay, according to last name on August 6 or 7. New Students with the last name starting with letters A-K: August 6, 2020 starting at 8 a.m. New Students with the last name starting with letters L-Z: August 7, 2020 starting at 8 a.m.
  • Upperclassmen will participate in the Drop-n-Go system from July 31-August 5. Upperclassmen may return to stay, according to last name on August 8 or 9. Upperclassmen with the last name starting with letters A-K: August 8, 2020 starting at 8 a.m. Upperclassmen with the last name starting with letters L-Z: August 9, 2020 starting at 8 a.m.

Are there going to be move-in volunteers or carts to help us move into our rooms?

This year, move-in is an independent process. To ensure safety protocols are followed, there will not be assistance on hand to help you carry your belongings.  Feel free to bring a cart or buggy to help you quickly move your belongings as these will also not be available.

Are we going to have to wear masks in Residence Halls or when participating in student activities?

Yes, like in the classroom, you will be required to wear a mask anytime you are out of your residence hall room.  Student Activities will also require anyone who attends an in-person program/event to wear a mask.

What consequences do students face if they refuse to wear a mask or face covering on campus?

Failure of students to comply with the University’s Student Code of Conduct regarding personal protective equipment (PPE), such as masks and face coverings, will result in one or more of the following measures: written warning, removal from class, probation, suspension and/or expulsion from the University. Students will have an opportunity to provide information about any extenuating circumstances that may apply. Consequences will be based on the specifics of each student’s situation.

Has your room configuration in Housing changed, due to COVID?

Housing continues to assign students to Single and Double rooms in the traditional halls. Bryant Place and University Terrace continue with normal configurations of Apartments and Suite-Style living. We know how important it is that you have a roommate and someone with whom to speak and share your college experience. Many of you have asked for a roommate. However, if you have a specific need or require single accommodations because of special accessibility needs, please contact us and we will work with you on an assignment as those spaces are available.

What if my roommate isn’t wearing a mask outside of our room?

The health and safety of the campus community is everyone’s responsibility. If your roommate is not adhering to the mask policy within housing or anywhere on campus, please make sure you alert a member of the Residence Life team, faculty, or staff.

Has the housing visitation policy changed?

Yes. Students will no longer be allowed to gather in common areas and should not visit in each other’s rooms. These decisions are based on guidance from the Marion County Health Department and other professionals and are in place to mitigate exposure and risk from outside community members, non-students, and non-residential students. We are hopeful that in the future our visitation policy will resume to “normal.”

What if my roommate is bringing back guests to our room, or is hanging out in someone else’s room?

If your roommate is not following the visitation policy, please make sure you alert a member of the Residence Life team, faculty, or staff.

Are you cleaning more on campus and in the Residence Halls?

Yes. Custodial services will clean all high-touch areas throughout the day including doorknobs, handrails, elevator buttons, etc.  All community-style restrooms will be deep cleaned once per day with high touch areas gone over frequently throughout the day including sinks, faucets, handles, toilets, etc.

What if I think I am sick with COVID-19? (updated 7/20/20)

Students who feel ill and are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and are residing in a Residence Hall, immediately self isolate in your room and contact the Health Department or your Primary Care Physician. Please also notify your Residence Director or the Office of Housing and Residence Life at 304-367-4216 so they can assist you further. 

COVID-19 SYMPTOMS, TESTING, & QUARANTINE

Do I have to get tested before I return to campus?

Gov. Justice directed funds to all of the state’s higher education institutions in order to test ALL students, faculty and staff for COVID-19. We are working with state leaders and the National Guard to make plans that can quickly be operationalized. We anticipate being able to finalize plans throughout the weekend and will provide additional information to you soon. 

Again, the Governor has mandated that ALL students now be tested for COVID-19. Please continue to monitor your campus email for updated details and a schedule of testing procedures.

Failure to take the COVID-19 test by Aug. 21 will result in a $100 fee being added to a student's account. They will also be referred to the Office of Student Conduct for follow-up. Students will be given an opportunity to explain any extenuating circumstances for their non-compliance. Follow-up actions will be based on the particular situation for each student.

Will everyone be tested before returning to campus?

Fairmont State will provide a free test to all students, faculty and staff who are returning to Fairmont State campuses. Students who are taking classes exclusively online will not be required to be tested.

Will the University test new hires for COVID-19 as they come on board? 

Any new hires who will be working on campus, including those working in a hybrid capacity, will be required to complete a COVID-19 test.

What protocols should faculty, staff and students follow while waiting for their University COVID-19 test results?

You will be asked to maintain physical separation as much as possible and avoid large gatherings to the fullest extent possible until the results of your test are available.

Faculty and staff should still report to work, but they must wear a mask/face covering as mandated, stay in their workspace as much as possible, practice physical distancing and avoid large crowds.

Students may not attend class while awaiting test results. Students can leave their residence hall room but should wear a mask/face covering as mandated and stay physically distant as much as possible, and follow all other Residence Hall Health and Safety Policies. Students should still be able to eat within the dining halls, but they should wear a mask/face covering and physically distance themselves while traveling to dining halls and when they are not eating. During this period, various virtual activities will be hosted for students to stay busy, meet people, etc.

What happens if a student or employee tests positive for COVID-19? 

Students, faculty and staff with a positive test result will be notified by the local health department and a contact tracing investigation will begin. Please be as honest and detailed as possible when providing information on others who may have been exposed.

As requested, the University will assist with contact tracing and also work with local health departments to determine if there is a need to decontaminate a specific facility or implement any additional mitigation measures.

Testing information regarding patients is regulated by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) guidelines and will be kept confidential to the extent possible under the circumstances.

Will students and employees be able to travel during the fall semester?

Fairmont State strongly discourages any student or employee from personal travel to locations other than their home and campus. In addition, the University remains closed to visitors.

Anyone traveling domestically outside of West Virginia is subject to a 5-day self-quarantine/self-monitoring period. This does not include commuting to work.

University-related international and domestic business travel for Fairmont State students and employees will be not be allowed. Individuals who are returning to the Fairmont State campuses from any international/cruise ship travel are subject to a 14-day self-quarantine/self-monitoring period.

Will the University have the capability to provide COVID-19 testing if I become ill?

The University will work with you to direct you to a testing facility. We continue to communicate with the Marion County Health Department to ensure that appropriate steps are being taken to minimize any spread of this pandemic. Students who feel ill and are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms should immediately self-isolate and notify Student Health.

What if I feel ill or begin to show symptoms of COVID-19?

Students should first contact Student Health Services, (304) 367-4155, and the Marion County Health Department, (304) 366-3360. Then, students should immediately self-isolate, wear a mask, and report symptoms at www.fairmontstate.edu/reportillness.  Remember that masks are to be worn in any public spaces and in all classrooms at the University.

Faculty and staff should not report to work or visit campus if they feel ill or show symptoms associated with COVID-19. Contact their primary care provider, HR and your immediate supervisor. Then, self-isolate, wear a mask, and report symptoms at www.fairmontstate.edu/reportillness.

Where should I go to get tested if I develop symptoms during the semester?

Students should contact Student Health (at 304-367-4155) and/or their primary care physician.

What other resources are in place for students to get tested anytime they don't feel well or is there any way for students to access cleaning supplies if they can't leave campus?

Students who feel ill and are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms should immediately notify Student Health (at 304-367-4155).  As for cleaning supplies, Fairmont State will be increasing the cleaning schedules for high-touch common areas.  However, any request for cleaning supplies should be addressed to your RA who can assist you. 

Will the University help me pay for my COVID-19 test, if I don’t have insurance?

If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms but do not have the money to obtain a test, the University will work with you to connect you to available resources. Please notify Student Health at 304-367-4155.  

If I test positive for COVID-19, can I go home instead of staying on campus?

Whether you can return home, following a positive COVID-19 test, will depend on many factors, including where you live. These requests will be forwarded to the Marion County Health Department who will advise you on your options.

Will I have to be re-tested if I test positive for COVID?

The University will not require re-testing if the student can establish that they have fully followed the guidelines of their primary care provider and the County Health Department which is assisting in the student’s care.

What if I quarantine on campus and I am feeling lonely?

We know that it may be difficult to self-isolate. If you are feeling lonely during this time, we are here to help. Please reach out to the Counseling Center (at 304-333-3661) who can assist.
