Wellness Team looks at health holistically

A Wellness Team comprised of faculty and staff has teamed up to provide a holistic approach to keeping our community healthy and safe.

The Wellness Team will promote campus events that address the physical safety, well-being and mental health of our campus community, including faculty, staff and students. The College continues prioritizing the well-being of ourselves and each other.

The Wellness Team has created and will maintain a comprehensive calendar of campus events that will align with the Six Dimensions of Wellness Model developed by Dr. Bill Hettler, co-founder of the National Wellness Insititute. The six dimensions are

  • Occupational
  • Physical
  • Social
  • Intellectual
  • Spiritual
  • Emotional

Initial events will be planned to fall on Wellness Wednesdays, which will be promoted in internal newsletters to faculty, staff and students as well as on social media and printed materials such as posters and fliers posted around campus.

COVID guidance for Spring 2023

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that otherwise healthy people with mild COVID-19 isolate for a minimum of 5 days after onset and may be released from isolation after they are without fever for 24 hours (without fever-reducing medication) and show improvement in symptoms.

Cases without symptoms should isolate through 5 days after their positive test.

The CDC recommends that people with COVID-19 wear a mask when around others for 10 full days following onset of symptoms or their positive test if they have no symptoms. Mask wearing can end earlier than day 10 if the person is without fever, showing symptom improvement and has two sequential negative antigen tests 48 hours apart.
