Guidelines 

The health and safety of our students, faculty and staff are paramount. We cannot reinforce enough the importance of following the guidelines Goldfarb has put in place to minimize the risks of being exposed to the COVID-19 virus.

As we continue our gradual, phased re-entry, we will continue to reinforce social distancing and proper hygiene protocols set forth by BJC HealthCare, as well as the Center for Disease Control and Prevention:

  • Masks are required and should always be worn in public areas such as hallways, elevators, and classrooms and must be worn upon entering the college.

  • Students, faculty and staff returning to campus must complete the daily COVID-19 screening before entering class, labs or offices.

  • Students with badges and scheduled for skills labs at the Duncan campus will be screened at the Link each scheduled lab day for the remainder of the summer term.

  • Students without badges and scheduled for skills labs at the Duncan campus will receive their badges and initial screening at the Duncan campus.

  • For the remainder of the summer term, all students with badges and scheduled skill labs or simulations at the Duncan campus will be screened at the Link on each scheduled lab day.

  • Students with badges and scheduled skills labs at the West site will be screened at Missouri Baptist Medical Center (MoBap) each scheduled lab day for the remainder of the summer term.

  • Screening and temperature checks must be completed daily.

  • Each day, individuals will receive a sticker denoting screening has been completed.

  • The sticker must be placed on the badge, be visible and worn throughout day.

  • Students, faculty and staff will be prohibited from entering classrooms, labs and offices without a screening sticker.

  • If you are not feeling well, please stay home. This is a good habit to follow for any illness but even more important to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

  • For more information read the BJC Covid Information Form 

  • Each day, faculty and staff returning to campus must complete Employee Access Screening- Be sure to bookmark the screening page on your phone. 

Due to Goldfarb’s modified operations, students must adhere to their specified class appointments. Please do not arrive earlier than fifteen minutes before your scheduled time. This will help ensure that students can be screened and go directly to class while minimizing the need to congregate in the lobby and hallways.

Screening

Goldfarb will continue to adhere to the extra level of safety by cleaning and disinfecting throughout the day and ensuring that hand sanitizer is available. Additional guidelines are posted throughout the building.

If you believe that you have been exposed to COVID-19, experiencing symptoms, or been 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. The testing site will be expecting you. If you have any questions, please call Occupational Health 314-362-5050.

  • Do not return to work /school 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. If your symptoms worsen, please call your physician or call 911. Let your providers, ER or EMS, know that you have been tested for COVID-19 and provide them results once you are informed.
