What is Klamath Community College's COVID-19 Requirements and Precautions?
(This information is found in your Klamath Community College Institutional syllabus)
The mainstays of reducing exposures to the coronavirus and other respiratory pathogens are:
- Physical distancing - minimizing close contact with other people;
- Hand hygiene - frequent washing with soap and water or using hand sanitizer;
- Protective equipment - use of face coverings, barriers, etc.;
- Environmental cleaning and disinfection - especially of high-touch surfaces;
- Isolation of those who are sick and quarantine of those who have been exposed;
- With the above considerations, foremost, outdoor activities are safer than indoor activities. However, face coverings are to be worn outdoors for large outdoor events, where physical distancing is not possible, and regardless of vaccine status.
All students are required to conduct a self-check for COVID-19 symptoms before coming to campus. Primary COVID-19 symptoms of concern: cough, fever or chills, shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing. Students must stay at their residence if they have COVID-19 symptoms.
Students are encourage to perform appropriate hand hygiene upon their arrival to campus every day.
All students are required
to wear face coverings in all classrooms, laboratory settings, waiting areas, restrooms, hallways, elevators, and stairs. A "face covering" is defined as cloth, paper, or disposable face mask, or physical barrier (also known as a face shield) that must fully cover both the mouth and nose
If exposed to a COVID-19 positive individual, you must
quarantine for 14 days after your last exposure. If someone in you household was exposed to a COVID-19 individual, you do not need
to quarantine as there is very little likelihood that you can become infected by a third party.
: If exposed to a COVID-19 positive individual and you are symptom free, you do not need
to quarantine. It is recommended you wear a mask for 14 days around other individuals.
All students are encouraged to wash their hands frequently. Alcohol-based hand sanitizing products may be used as an alternative to hand washing except before eating and after using the restroom.

Is course attendance mandatory?
Yes! You should try to attend all of your in-person courses and log into your course(s) in Canvas at least once per week. If you are enrolled in distance education courses, we recommend logging into Canvas daily. During the first week of the term, a student may be dropped from a class by the instructor for nonattendance OR failure to complete assignments. (View the KCC Institutional Syllabus for more information.)
How can I get technical support?
If you are experiencing a technical issue, you should contact the organization whose product or service is not functioning properly. For example, if you are turning a paper in through Turnitin within Canvas and you experience a technical issue specific to Turnitin, then you should contact Turnitin technical support. Instructors are not responsible for providing technical support; however, you may want to inform your instructor if you are experiencing technical issues related to the course.
