Compton College – Pandemic Outbreak Emergency Operations Plan

Compton College’s Pandemic Outbreak Plan is a companion document to the Compton
College Emergency Operations Plan. The plan serves as the overarching guidance in
developing response plans and subsequent activities, leading to pandemic preparedness. Area
Vice Presidents will develop their own internal response plans to address specific issues within
their area related to the threat of excessive absenteeism or campus closures.
The Compton College community has an obligation to be responsive as with any community,
but even more so given the social nature of a college campus. Further planning, collaboration,
and training will prove to be essential in reducing the impact of a pandemic outbreak and while
maintaining the critical operations of Compton College.

Rush Center for Clinical Skills and Simulation Re-Entry Guidelines

Covid-19 has disrupted most aspects of our lives, especially providing immersive learning experiences. Simulation-based education relies on interaction with medical tools and communication with patients and clinicians. This experience is especially significant when we provide training on skills where tactile sensation and human factors related to grip, positioning, and muscle memory are needed for effective skill transfer. Distance learning and online video courses are not adequate surrogated for many of these activities.
Our goal is to keep on-site projects to a minimum for safety and to reflect Rush University and Rush University Medical Center policies and procedures related to Covid-19. The unique safety concerns for the simulation center team and our stakeholders are addressed here. These guidelines will be updated as new information becomes available, and emphasize employee and stakeholder safety. Environmental modifications, employee guidelines to support safety, and communication strategies to ensure awareness and compliance are included with these guidelines, which will require a collaborative approach from all stakeholders.

WHO – Getting your workplace ready for COVID-19

In January 2020 the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak of a new coronavirus disease in Hubei Province, China to be a Public Health Emergency of International Concern. WHO stated there is a high risk of the 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19) spreading to other countries around the world. WHO and public health authorities around the world are taking action to contain the COVID-19 outbreak.
However, long term success cannot be taken for granted. All sections of our society – including businesses and employers – must play a role if we are to stop the spread of this disease.

Canadian Chamber of Commerce COVID-19 │ Pandemic Preparedness for Business

In addition to the work of the health care industry when a pandemic hits, businesses play a critical role in protecting the health and safety of employees, and limiting the negative impact on the economy and communities. They also need to have business continuity plans that will minimize the impact on the business itself and facilitate a speedy resumption of activities if the business has been forced to scale back or close during the pandemic. Preparedness, not panic, is the best way to mitigate the risks posed by a COVID-19 pandemic to the Canadian economy and our citizens.
