Spartan Community Promise
As Spartans, we can make a difference
I am committed to prioritizing my health and well-being as well as that of my family, friends, colleagues, classmates, university, and community. I promise to be socially responsible and do my part to protect the health of the Spartan Community through the actions below.
The Spartan Community Promise is a voluntary way to show your SJSU family that you care and that we are united. Share your commitment on social media by using the #SJSUnited hashtag.
Daily Personal Health Self-Assessment Checklist
I will conduct a self-assessment of my health before coming to campus to watch for symptoms listed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. I will stay home if I don’t feel well and cannot attribute my symptoms to another known cause, such as allergies or a pre-existing condition. I will contact my medical provider for any symptoms that are severe or concerning to me.
Daily Personal Health Self-Assessment Checklist includes:
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Repeated shaking with chills
- Runny nose or new sinus congestion
- Muscle pain or body aches
- Sore throat
- New gastrointestinal (Gl) symptoms
- New loss of taste or smell
I will wash my hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after I have been in public places, or after blowing my nose, coughing, sneezing, or touching my face. If soap and water are not readily available, I will use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
I will stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from other people and avoid large gatherings or crowded areas.
I will wear face coverings or masks at all times, unless I am alone in a closed room with the door closed. If I require reasonable accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act as Amended (ADAAA), I will contact:
Health and Safety Protocol Online Training
As a SJSU employee, I will take SJSU’s COVID-19 Health and Safety online training available on CSU Learn training site.
Cleaning and Disinfection
In addition to cleaning and disinfection provided by various departments, including Facilities Development and Operations (FD&O), I will do my part to also wipe down surfaces or equipment in shared-space locations before and after use. As SJSU is ensuring my safety and those around me, I will request COVID-19 safety supplies such as face coverings, personal protective equipment (PPE), and sanitary supplies that I may need to keep my campus environment safe. I will use the COVID-19 Safety Supply Request Form to submit my requests.
Reporting a Case of COVID-19
If I have tested positive for COVID-19 or if I have been in close contact (within 6 feet for 15 minutes or more) with someone who has recently tested positive for COVID-19, I understand that I should complete a confidential “Reporting a Case of COVID-19” online form. A report case manager will contact me shortly after the initial survey. They will offer support resources and inquire about recent on-site activity and university related contacts that could require notification.
If I test positive for COVID-19 in Santa Clara County, I understand that someone from the County of Santa Clara’s contact tracing team will contact me. I will participate in contact tracing as this procedure is used to help inform me of care and resource options, as well as help identify other people I might have come in contact with, in order to properly take precautions to prevent the spread of the virus.
