TCS COVID-19 Prevention Expectations


All TCS students, faculty, and staff who are reporting to campus or other physical TCS locations for instruction or work are expected to wear properly fitted, approved cloth face masks and monitor themselves on a daily basis for COVID-19 symptoms, which may include: 

  • Fever (100.4° F/37.8° C or greater as measured by an oral thermometer)
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Known exposure to someone who has COVID19
  • Cough
  • Recent Body Aches/ Muscle Pain
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Sore Throat
  • Chills
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting

If you (student/staff) are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is recommended to stay home, notify your respective school/ immediate supervisor and contact your medical provider. If you have been in contact with an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19 you should remain home until cleared by a medical provider. Should you be awaiting COVID-19 testing results, you should not attend school until you have been notified of a negative test result. (PCR Testing Preferred).
