COVID-19 Information

Fall 2021 Protocol

As we navigate the ever-changing guidance at the state and federal level related to COVID-19 our health and safety protocols are for the common good of our entire campus community — those of us who study and work here, as well as visitors.

This website will be kept up-to-date with communications and other information needed as we progress, so check it often.

We Wear Face Masks for Each Other.

FHTC Face Mask Procedure, Effective August 10, 2021

FHTC requires face masks in the event of a respiratory pandemic or epidemic as identified by Lyon County Public Health, Kansas Department of Health and Environment and/or the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Employees, students, and visitors must wear face masks over their mouths and noses in all indoor spaces on college property unless alone in their own private offices or workspaces.

Employees, students, and visitors who do not comply with this procedure will be asked to leave campus until properly masked. Those who continue to violate the procedure may be subject to further disciplinary action including suspension, expulsion, or termination.

Required masking is contingent on the transmission status as defined by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Masks will be required when the transmission status is substantial or high. The requirement will be reviewed weekly and rescinded when Lyon County is no longer in substantial or high transmission status according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Keep Cleaning and Sanitation Top of Mind

Wash hands frequently with soap and water OR use a 60%-90% alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

When a FHTC-Related Case is Identified

FHTC communicates regularly with Lyon County Public Health and notifies or is notified whenever there is a positive COVID-19 case associated with FHTC campuses.

When an FHTC-related positive case of COVID-19 is identified, FHTC communicates with Lyon County Public Health who will then manage all contact tracing in coordination with the Vice President of Student Services.

The College will immediately contact any FHTC employee or student known to have been in close contact with a positive case and advise them to self-quarantine if they have not been vaccinated.
