EMMS Visitor Protocol (effective immediately)

Fri, 02/19/2021 - 8:36pm

Visitors are not permitted under HCPSS Infectious Disease Plan. Exceptions are made for emergency services, contractors, and special situations. Facility special visitors will be limited and should occur by scheduled appointment only. No walk-in visitors are permitted. As much as possible, appointments to meet with parents and others should be accommodated via telephone, video conference, or another suitable technology. When a face-to-face visit is necessary, the school or office must schedule an appointment time with the visitor and follow the following steps:

  • Once the visitor has arrived at the building and parked, they must call the school/office to check-in.

  • The administrator, or staff member admitting the visitor, must ask the health screening questions.

    • If visitors are suspected to be sick and/or have recently experienced COVID-19 symptoms, they are not permitted to enter the building and must reschedule.

    • Visitors who pass the health screening should be instructed to access the building through the main front doors and be greeted by an employee, who will wear a mask, to escort the visitor to their appointment.

  • Masks MUST be worn and 6' socials distancing MUST be followed at all times while on EMMS grounds and interior locations.

  • Visitors MUST be alone

    • Any family members or friends accompanying the visitor will be asked to remain outside or in a vehicle unless otherwise approved by the administration.

      • Examples: baby/small child; meeting with both parents/advocate.

  • Hand sanitizer is readily available in the EMMS vestibules.

School administrative staff will provide signage to instruct visitors on the procedures to be followed.
