Community Partner COVID Protocols

Working in partnership with community organizations during a pandemic, we agree to share information between both parties to keep everyone safe. At Williams, care is being taken as undergraduates are tested individually each week. In CLiA’s local partner schools, K-12 students are pool tested weekly with parental permission. When on-site at local schools, all students, staff, and visitors must wear a mask. 

Local school districts require that all Williams students be fully vaccinated and masked to work on-site.* As a result, CLiA needs to confirm the vaccination status of all those hired for this work. By completing this form, you provide your consent to the Center for Learning in Action to confirm your vaccination status with the College’s Health Services. This information will remain confidential.

*Alternative work options will be made available to those who cannot be vaccinated.

Williams students are expected to monitor themselves for COVID symptoms — if you have a cough, sore throat, fever, chills, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle or body aches, any loss of taste or smell, notify your CLiA supervisor and classroom teacher and DO NOT GO TO WORK.

If your weekly COVID test result is inconclusive, DO NOT GO TO WORK, and notify your CLiA supervisor and classroom teacher.

What happens if there is a positive test:

  • At Williams – If a Williams student tests positive or is a close contact of a positive test case, the Williams student agrees to inform a CLiA staff member immediately. We will need to know when you tested positive or were exposed to a positive case and the date of your last visit to the school. The partner school where the Williams student works will be informed of the positive case.
  • If a K-12 student or teacher tests positive at the community partner, CLiA staff will inform Williams students who had exposure to that positive case in their K-12 class.  

Those notified of exposure will move to remote work status at the partner school; they will stay out of the partner school for at least five (5) days from the date of exposure. Depending on Williams’s testing schedule, they will take a COVID test at Williams on the 3rd, 4th, or 5th day after exposure. Those exposed do not need to quarantine on campus (i.e., they can continue to participate in-person in their Williams classes following all College masking and social distancing protocols) unless they test positive (in which case, they follow the college rules for doing so).
