Acknowledgement and Attestation

Early identification of cases and their close contacts is critical to preventing the spread of COVID-19 to TUC and the surrounding community. As required by state and Solano County public health directives, TUC is implementing a strategy for conducting COVID-19 symptom checks, testing, and contact-tracing for faculty, staff, and students aimed at identifying early cases and quarantining close contacts. All faculty, staff, and students are expected to participate in TUC’s COVID-19 symptom checking, surveillance testing, and contact tracing program.

All students and employees must complete this acknowledgement and attestation to help us minimize the spread of COVID-19 on campus. Should you choose not to complete this requirement, you are not allowed on campus and are subject to corrective action (employee) or charged with violating the Student Conduct Code (student) if you come to campus. If you have questions, please contact your supervisor (employee) or Dean of Student Affairs (student).

I understand the University will, in addition to its standard cleaning practices, be taking the following health and safety measures:

  • Deep cleaning and disinfecting of common areas
  • Ensuring hand sanitizer stations are located in all buildings, subject to availability of hand sanitizer
