September 14, 2020 - Case of COVID-19 in Westshore Contract Training Class
A student who attended a contract training math class for Ford employees on Sept. 8 in SHCS 133 at the Westshore Campus tested positive for COVID-19 on Sept. 9. The student went to class despite experiencing symptoms and being tested for COVID-19 on Sept. 7, and developing an additional symptom the morning of Sept. 8. Potential exposure was increased when the instructor and other students removed their masks during class.
Students, faculty and staff should not come to any Tri-C campus or facility while experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or any other illness, and masks must be worn at all times while in a Tri-C building. Appropriate disciplinary actions will be taken with both the student and instructor.
Despite this two-fold violation of the College’s safety guidelines and protocols, this is a moderate-risk exposure because the ill student wore a mask and maintained a distance of six feet or more from the instructor and other students. Plant Operations cleaned the room after the class and sanitized the room again the next day.
The student was on campus from 5-8 p.m. on Sept. 8, primarily in SHCS 133, but also walked around the first floor of the building during two breaks. We do not know the student’s exact whereabouts during that time, but are trying to confirm details. Care Alliance Health Center will conduct COVID-19 testing at the Westshore Campus on Thursday, Sept. 17 from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Anyone who would like to be tested can do so at no charge.
Ford Risk Management has completed exposure notification to other Ford student employees. Tri-C has reached out to the limited number of students, faculty and staff who were or may have been in contact with this student to provide guidance on self-quarantining or monitoring for symptoms. Out of an abundance of caution, the College suspended the class in question for two weeks to allow time for the incubation period to complete and for those exposed to seek testing.
We will continue to provide you with information on confirmed cases at Tri-C. Transparency, along with adherence to College safety protocols, is essential to stopping the spread of the virus.
Let’s continue to work together to stop the spread. Please notify Joe Amschlinger, Collegewide director of Compliance and Risk Management, at email@example.com if you have symptoms or are diagnosed.
August 21, 2020 - Return for Fall Semester
In preparation for the start of fall semester, we’ve updated our return-to-campus and office protocols to follow the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines and Responsible RestartOhio Guidance for Institutions of Higher Education.

- Perform a daily health assessment before coming to any campus or facility.
- Review and electronically sign the COVID-19 Statement of Personal Responsibility (once per semester).
• Student Statement of Personal Responsibility
• Employee Statement of Personal Responsibility
• Visitor Statement of Personal Responsibility (if bringing a visitor with you; visitors must acknowledge for each visit to campus or site)
- Always wear a face covering while on a campus or at a Tri-C site. If you forget a face covering, disposable masks are available at the following locations:
• Advanced Technology Training Center — E. 30th entrance reception desk
• Brunswick University Center – Information desk
• Corporate College® East — See staff

- All students and employees must carry and be prepared to present their College ID card/Stomp Card while on campus.
- Comply with all safety directives on posted signs and in email communications from the College.
- Maintain a distance of 6 feet or greater between yourself and others.
- Practice good personal hygiene, including frequent handwashing for at least 20 seconds.

Please take a moment to watch this video, which further explains what you can expect when you come to a Tri-C campus or site.
We’ve taken numerous steps to protect our Tri-C community, and we’ll continue to update our processes and procedures as we move through the fall semester. Check your College email regularly and visit tri-c.edu/coronavirus for the most up-to-date information.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
We’re all in this together — and if we work at this together, we can be together. Stay safe and healthy!
August 14, 2020 - Financial support for students
The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has brought unprecedented change to our daily lives. The College knows this is a challenging time and that students may need help. As the Fall 2020 semester approaches, we want to ensure you are aware of the student financial resources available to assist you, including those listed below.
More than 66% of Tri-C students receive an average of $4,279 in financial aid and scholarships to help pay for tuition, books, and living expenses. If you need help applying for financial aid options or need to check your financial aid status, please contact the Student Financial Aid and Scholarships Office.
We have also learned that the Department of Housing and Urban Development has delayed or not processed funds for clients regarding their SNAP (food assistance) and cash benefits. Locally, this is causing delays with funding from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS). As such, we want to ensure information about local food banks is shared with students.
EMERGENCY FUNDS & CARES Act Student Emergency Grants
Students can access emergency funds from the College through the Student Financial Aid and Scholarships office. Additional emergency financial assistance is also available through the Tri-C CARES Act student emergency grants; CARES Act Student Emergency Grants. Students who need help during this difficult time ― whether for educational resources, food or other expenses ― should contact the financial aid office to determine eligibility.
CAMPUS FOOD PANTRY
Each campus has a food pantry whereby students can obtain food and personal items. We want to remind students of this resource and to go to their Student Life & Athletics/Student Engagement offices on their campus for more details and hours of service.
Transportation assistance is available based on need. Students can visit a campus Enrollment Center for more information.
