COVID-19 Protocols for Spring 2022

Dear Members of the Chatfield Community;

We write today to update you on the Chatfield College response to the increase in reported COVID-19 cases throughout Southwestern Ohio.  Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, we have operated in a safe environment without any disruption in overall campus operations while providing in-person classes, student support, and office functions because of the diligent practice of following our established prevention protocols.

Chatfield College is a safe place to learn and to work.  In response to the resurgence of Coronavirus variants, we have established guidelines to ensure the safety of our entire working and learning community, their families, and the communities in which we live.

The following guidelines are informed by respect for the individual, are aligned with our Mission and Values, and will remain aligned with guidance provided by local, regional, state, and Federal agencies.

  • Temperature checks and sign-in are required upon arrival to campus.
  • If you feel unwell, do not come to class or work.  Students should communicate timely with their instructors.  Employees should consult with their supervisor.
  • Course enrollment levels have been adjusted to assure safe distancing, and classrooms are sanitized in-between use.
  • The wearing of masks while indoors is required. Masks will be provided to those who arrive without.
  • Chatfield College does not require proof of immunization.  We encourage you to become vaccinated if you are able, as vaccination continues to be an effective way to reduce the effects due to Coronavirus infection.

Classes remain scheduled to begin on Tuesday, January 18. 

  • Students who learn they will be unable to attend a scheduled in-person class should immediately contact their faculty member or Site Director to arrange for alternate means of demonstrating academic attendance.  Faculty should briefly advise the Site Director of potential student absences.
  • Faculty who learn they will be unable to attend a scheduled in-person class should promptly contact their Department Coordinator.
