Covid-19 Updates

Fall 2022 Frequently Asked Questions

The 2022-23 academic year will be the third year that we balance normal life with the Covid-19 pandemic. It is our goal to provide our students with a full university experience while maintaining an awareness of our responsibility to “the other” should the Covid-19 virus escalate to a point where it poses a serious risk to the health of our campus community or the community around us. We are thankful for God’s goodness to our campus community over the course of the last two years and trust his plans for us in the year ahead.

To God be the glory!

Yes. Free, self-administered, saliva PCR testing kits are available for all students, faculty, and staff. These tests can take up to 72 hours for results. Antigen (rapid) testing is not provided for non-students.

Dordt Student Health will provide free antigen diagnostic testing for fulltime, undergraduate, students who have Covid-like symptoms or who have been recently exposed. Antigen testing is not available for non-students or for travel/event screening purposes.

Students who test positive for Covid-19 will be provided with isolation guidance from the CDC and be advised to isolate in place. Students who live within 250 miles of campus will be asked to isolate at home; students from further distances away will isolate in their university housing. All students will be asked to remove themselves from all in-person classes and campus activities until their isolation period is over.

No. Out of concern for the community around them, students who test positive for Covid-19 will be asked to notify roommates and others in the community who should be made aware that they have had a known exposure to the virus.

Fully vaccinated students who are up to date with booster vaccines, or have natural immunity from the virus within the last 90 days, will be provided with up-to-date CDC guidance that does not require quarantine but does recommend masking for 10 days and testing on day 5 after exposure. These students may attend class and other campus activities while masked.

Regardless of vaccination status or history of past infection, exposed students no longer need to quarantine away from others, but should now wear a well fitting mask for 10 days when they will be around others, test as soon as symptoms develop or if symptom free, test on day 6 after exposure. Students can find more detailed information on u.dordt.edu.

Infected and exposed roommate(s) remain together with the caveat that the uninfected roommate is informed of the risks of sharing living space with an infected individual.

No. The University does not require documentation of Covid vaccination. Nursing students will need to comply with the requirements of our clinical partners to continue in clinicals as assigned. There may also be outside entities that require Covid vaccination for student internships or international programs or missions. The United Stated requires that all international arrivals are fully vaccinated for Covid.

At this time, masking is not required. Given the changing nature of the virus, if transmission on campus or in the community around us reaches a threshold of concern that prompts our local health partners (Sioux Center Health, Iowa Public Health) to advise masking for our community, Dordt would honor their request and recommend masking on campus.

As we begin the 2022-2023 school year, class attendance policies and procedures as outlined in the Student Handbook are in place. To paraphrase the Student Handbook, Dordt University as an institution remains committed to in person instruction for face-to-face courses. As a result, you are expected to be present for every class period and laboratory period. Should you need to miss class for any reason, contact your instructor as soon as possible (either prior to the absence or immediately following). Absences for Dordt-sponsored curricular or co-curricular activities will be communicated by the activity sponsor and are considered excused.

You are responsible to contact your instructor to make arrangements for missed work. Your instructor is not required to provide real time (synchronous) learning for you should you be absent for class for any reason (ex. Zooming into your real time class). Your instructor is also not required to provide asynchronous virtual learning materials for you (ex. recordings of missed classes, PowerPoints, other materials on Canvas). While some instructors might utilize some of the synchronous/asynchronous methods of making up work on occasion, you should not expect all instructors to provide these experiences automatically. Methods of making up missed work might include: contacting a fellow student to get notes from class, extensions on assignments or labs, or other methods as determined by your instructor. Making arrangements for missed class work is your responsibility!

Please see your instructor’s specific attendance policy.

Dordt will provide quarantine housing only for those students who have a documented medical condition for which Covid poses a serious risk.

Students at higher risk of medical complications should request housing accommodations that ensure all roommates are fully vaccinated and up to date on boosters. They should adhere to all mitigation strategies, such as masking, that decrease risk of exposure on a campus where masking and vaccination are not required. In the event that a vaccinated roommate has Covid, the University will make arrangements for housing for the at-risk student so that they can be removed from continued exposure to the ill student.

Up to date isolation and quarantine calculator and guidelines are located here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/quarantine-isolation.html

  • What is the difference between fully vaccinated and up-to-date with vaccines? You are fully vaccinated when you have received all doses in the primary series of a Covid vaccine accepted in the U.S. You are up to date with your Covid vaccines when you have received all doses in the primary series and all boosters recommended for you, when eligible.
  • If you received Covid vaccines outside the United States, whether you are up to date depends on which Covid vaccine (and how many doses) you received. Learn more about when people vaccinated outside the United States are considered fully vaccinated.

Campus Communication on Novel-Coronavirus (COVID-19)

COVID-19 is a newly identified coronavirus that is causing an outbreak of pneumonia related illness. It was first identified in December 2019, in the city of Wuhan, Hubei Province, China.

Since then, the virus has been identified in multiple other countries, including 11 current cases in the United States.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), human coronaviruses are common throughout the world and usually cause mild to moderate illness in people. This new virus is a public health concern because:

  • It is newly identified, so much is still unknown about it.
  • Two other human coronaviruses, MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV, have caused severe illness in recent health concerns.

The World Health Organization has declared this a Public Health Emergency. However, the immediate health risk to the general US public is considered low at this time. The CDC and the World Health Organization are closely monitoring the situation and providing ongoing guidance.

Symptoms may be flu-like, ranging from mild to serious, and include:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Difficulty breathing.

Person-to-person spread is occurring, although it’s unclear exactly how it is transmitted and how easily the virus spreads between people.

The U.S. State Department has issued a level 4 travel alert (travel not advised) for all parts of China.

Dordt University officials and The Global Education office are watching developments closely. Questions concerning the potential effect of the illness on study abroad programs may be directed to Rebecca Tervo.

People infected with 2019-nCoV should receive supportive care to help relieve symptoms. Currently, there is no specific antiviral treatment recommended for 2019-nCoV infection (source: CDC).

There is no vaccine to prevent this virus, and the CDC advises that the best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to this virus.

Here are everyday actions to help prevent the spread of Novel-Coronavirus and all respiratory viruses:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick. Return to regular activities (including work or class) when you have been fever-free, without the use of medications, for 24 hours.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

IF YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS OF FEVER, COUGH, AND/OR DIFFICULTY BREATHING AND IN THE 14 DAYS PRIOR TO ONSET OF SYMPTOMS YOU:
  • Traveled to Hubei Province where Wuhan is located
  • Visited mainland China
  • Have had close contact with a laboratory-confirmed 2019-nCoV patient
YOU SHOULD:
  • Seek medical care right away. Before you go to a doctor’s office or emergency room, call ahead and tell them about your recent travel or contacts and your symptoms. Sioux Center Health’s Emergency Department can be reached at 712-722-1271, Physician Offices at 712-722-2609.
  • Avoid contact with others.
  • Do not travel while sick. Please do not use public transportation or just arrive at a health care facility without calling ahead.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available
  • Student Health and Counseling offers advice by phone (712-722-6990) during our business hours from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, to help save students and staff a trip to the Emergency Department.

COVID-19 Dashboard

What is quarantine? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “quarantine is used to keep someone who might have been exposed to Covid-19 away from others. Quarantine helps prevent spread of disease that can occur before a person knows they are sick or if they are infected with the virus without feeling symptoms.” Anyone who is exposed to a person who has tested positive for Covid-19 – is within six feet for more than 15 minutes – must quarantine if possible. A person in quarantine must remain exclusively in the assigned space for 14 days since his or her last contact with a person with Covid-19.

What is isolation? Those who test positive with Covid-19 must isolate for 10 days from the date of the positive test if asymptomatic, or for 10 days from the onset of symptoms, and be symptom-free for 24 hours before returning to home. To learn more, visit the CDC’s website.

The university will provide limited isolation and quarantine housing for infected students. Students living within 250 miles of Dordt should quarantine at home until they have met the conditions for their return. For infected students who live further than 250 miles, Dordt is providing isolation and quarantine housing. For more information, please see our "Roadmap for Reopening."
