Campus Outbreak Management

The College will collaborate with the Washington and Smyth County Health Departments and local healthcare providers to manage a campus outbreak of COVID-19. In consultation with the local health department, the College will determine to what extent on-campus activities need to be suspended.

Contract tracing will be in accordance with Health Department protocols; the Washington and Smyth County Health Departments are the College’s direct partner for contact tracing.

Quarantine Definition

Quarantine is used to keep someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 (i.e. suspected COVID-19 positive) away from others.

Isolation Definition

Isolation is used to separate people infected with the virus (those who are sick with COVID-19, and those with no symptoms) (i.e. known COVID-19 positive) from people who are not infected.

E&H Participates in VDH’s COVIDWISE App Network

Emory & Henry has joined the COVIDWISE App Network. COVIDWISE is Virginia’s official COVID-19 exposure notification mobile app.

You may download and use this free app available via the App Store and Google Play Store. As you know, the more the Commonwealth’s workforce and citizens are aware of potential exposures to COVID-19, the more likely we are to minimize transmission risk and maintain normal business operations. The VDH acknowledges that no personally identifiable information or location data will be collected, stored, or tracked through COVIDWISE. Use of the app is voluntary, and it can be deleted from any device at any time.

Contact Ryan Bowyer, rbowyer@ehc.edu for more information about the program. The VDH website is here.

More detailed information about how Emory & Henry College is addressing COVID-19 rules, standards, and procedures are outlined in the Return to Campus Plan.
