Fall Break 2020


Greetings Students,

It’s hard to believe that we’re just a few weeks away from Goldfarb’s fall break, which begins on November 25 and will conclude on December 1, 2020. As you prepare for this much-needed break, I’d like to reinforce some of the most critical points to remember, and ask that you please stay aware of the guidelines and developments related to COVID-19: 

General Precautions for All Students 

•           Wear a cloth mask and practice social distancing. 

•           Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. 

•           Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands. 

•           Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. 

•           Stay home when you are sick. 

Students Traveling for Fall Break 

•           Research reputable sources of information on COVID-19 for the areas you plan to travel. 

•           Have plans to minimize exposure by wearing a cloth mask, practicing social distancing, frequent handwashing and using hand sanitizer. 

•           Continue these best practices throughout your trip. 

•           Stay current with COVID-19 developments and travel advice found on the Center for Disease Control website.  

•           Because information regarding COVID-19 can change rapidly, continue to monitor reputable sources not only while you are away, but even as you plan to return to the area and/or to campus. 

Possible Exposure to COVID-19 During Fall Break 

Upon your return, if you begin experiencing symptoms or been have exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID, please take the following steps: 

•           Do not come to the college to be screened. 

•           Notify your faculty/ supervisor about your concern. 

•           Call the Occupational Health COVID-19 Call Center at 314-362-5056. 

•           Please go to the testing site as directed by Occupational Health for a COVID-19 test.  

•           Do not return to campus until you receive approval from Occupational Health. 

•           Occupational Health will notify you of your test results--usually available within 24-48 hours. 

•           Occupational health will notify your supervisor/faculty regarding when you can return to work/school. 

•           While awaiting testing and results, you should isolate yourself at home.  

•           It is best to avoid contact with any household members as much as possible and stay in your home without leaving, except to receive medical care. 

I am grateful to you for your cooperation, especially during this unprecedented time. I wish you a relaxing, enjoyable and most importantly, safe fall break!
