PHSC Statement on COVID-19 Positive Testing

Statement Published June 24, 2020

Pasco-Hernando State College is committed to providing a healthy and safe environment for all students, employees, and members of the public. PHSC recognizes the threat of exposure to infectious diseases and will employ methods to minimize the risks of spreading disease among the College population. PHSC strives, in cooperation with the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) and the Florida Department of Health (FDOH), to maintain a balance between the need to educate all students, protect employee and student rights, and prevent the transmission of significant infectious diseases.

Students, employees, contract employees and members of the public who have been diagnosed with, experienced a significant exposure to, or show symptoms of a significant communicable infectious disease, whether symptomatic or not, have an ethical and legal obligation to avoid exposing other individuals to the disease. They are required to share that information with the appropriate College administrator as soon as possible and seek medical advice. Furthermore, infected individuals are encouraged to report diagnoses to local health authorities and seek counseling about how to care for themselves and prevent the spread of infection. For further information and guidance, please visit the Florida Department of Health COVID-19 Response website and/or the CDC website.

Students affected should contact their faculty member for assistance and guidance with coursework accommodations, and an academic advisor to learn about additional options regarding being successful in their program of study.

Students, who have been cleared by a licensed medical professional or the FDOH to return to class, can submit the appropriate paperwork to their Campus Assistant Dean of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management who will notify the faculty member(s) teaching course sections in which the student is enrolled.
