 Reopening Manual

 Coming to Campus for School or Work

Faculty and Staff:

If you need to make a short visit to campus to retrieve items or set up an office/workspace, permission is needed from your supervisor or Dean along with watching a required training video (one time only) and you will receive the check-in link from your supervisor to complete the check-in form up to two hours before your visit to campus.

Watch required Faculty/Staff Training Video  

Students:

Most of the fall classes are remote but there are a small number of classes that are face to face.  If you are coming to campus as a student, you will need to watch a required training video (one time only) and you will receive a check-in link to complete the check-in form up to two hours on each day you come to campus.

Watch the required Student Training Video

This is a new process and there may be glitches to work out. Please send an email to reopen@bhcc.edu regarding any technical problems you may experience.

Required Check-In

Students, Faculty, and Staff that are coming to campus on a regular basis must check-in each day using the check-in link they were provided as well as checking out each day.  This is to ensure the ability to do contact tracing in the event of a positive COVID-19 case.

After completing the check-in form, a "flash pass" is sent to the email address entered to allow entry into the building. It is important that you enter your correct BHCC email address that is bhcc.edu.  The flash pass is good for that day only. You will receive your flash pass in your email and will show the welcome desk upon entering the B Building. 

 

 Student And Faculty/Staff Symptom Self-Report Forms

BHCC Health Emergency (COVID-19) Forms

If you are sick, please stay home. Please use the applicable reporting form.

These forms are for faculty, staff, students, and others to refer a student who may have been exposed to COVID-19 or are reporting recovery from COVID-19.

 Travel Order Restrictions

Travel Restrictions by the Governor and what that means for BHCC

Under the recent Governor Baker’s order, all travelers entering Massachusetts from abroad or out-of-state, including returning residents, are required to:

  • Complete the Massachusetts Travel Form prior to arrival.
  • Quarantine for 14 days or produce a negative COVID-19 test result that has been administered up to 72-hours prior to your arrival in Massachusetts. If COVID-19 test results have not been received prior to arrival, visitors and residents must quarantine until they receive a negative test result.  Failure to comply may result in a $500 fine per day.

There are a number of New England states that are exempt from this order. if you are returning from one of these, you are currently exempt from this order.  Please check this list if you are traveling, it is subject to change. If you are impacted by the travel order, you must notify the College and send a notification to reopen@bhcc.edu.  College staff will follow up with you regarding the measures you will need to follow.
