Shawnee State will conduct testing under the guidance and direction of the local health department. Contact tracing will be internally managed with assistance of trained safety ambassadors who will follow prescriptive processes as approved by the Portsmouth City Health Department.

It is anticipated that international students traveling to the U.S will undergo a 14-day quarantine period and tested if symptomatic. Athletes and residential students will be monitored for symptoms, given a temperature test and required to complete a health questionnaire.

Students and employees who are symptomatic, have been in contact with a person who tested positive or have been in gatherings with persons who tested positive will be referred to the SSU Health Clinic and the local health department for testing. If positive, a 14-day quarantine will be required.

No personal information will be released throughout this process, except for information required by the local health department.
