With the “Stay-at-Home” order issued by Wake County, here are some updates on how this will impact campus:

  1. Only Essential Employees will be allowed on the SEBTS campus. HR will be communicating with all employees on how this impacts them personally, and essential employees will receive a letter that they will need to print and keep with them in case they are stopped while driving to campus.
  2. All buildings on campus will be locked. Full time employees have access. If you unlock a door, please lock the door behind yourself.
  3. Magnolia Kitchen will continue serving food even though the Ledford Center will be locked. Food will be distributed through the courtyard area to the left of the main Ledford entrance.

This order begins on March 27, 2020, at 5 pm, and runs through April 17, 2020. Further evaluation will take place at that time.

The NC Dept. of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) says to call your local doctor/health department if:

  • if you have COVID-19 symptoms
  • if you think you have been exposed to COVID-19
  • if you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and your symptoms get worse
  • if you have any questions about COVID-19
  • The number for NCDHHS is (866) 462-3821

 

Wake County also issued some new guidelines via Twitter on what to do if you develop COVID-19 symptoms.

If you develop COVID-19 symptoms (fever, cough, trouble breathing):

  1. Self-isolate for 7 days. When you feel better, stay home 3 more days.
  2. Call your doctor if you’re in an at-risk group or symptoms get worse.
  3. Call 911 if you have trouble breathing.

Here are some general reminders:

  • Remember to check the SEBTS website for updates.
  • Remember these social distancing guidelines from the CDC:
    • The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
    • The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
    • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
  • Also remember these steps for protecting yourself (also from the CDC):
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
