No. It is not a violation of HIPAA or any federal or state discrimination laws to ask students and employees who are physically entering campus to verify that they do not have COVID-19 symptoms and that they have not tested positive for COVID-19.
We are also permitted to ask whether an employee has had contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 or who may have symptoms associated with the disease. However, we are prohibited from asking whether an employee’s family members have COVID-19 or symptoms associated with COVID-19 under Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA).
It is not a violation of HIPAA or any federal or state discrimination laws to ask students and employees physically entering campus whether they have been vaccinated. However, if they are not vaccinated, we should not ask them why they have not been vaccinated because that may require them to disclose their ADA protected disability if they have one.
Remember to please use the COVID testing available in Locke Lounge or your home test kits rather than getting tested by external third parties.
Delta College conducts contact tracing through our partners at Healthcare IT Leaders. When positive cases are reported to the College, Healthcare IT Leaders will investigate and reach out to close contacts with further instructions. This system is comprehensive and will help keep our campus safe. Contact tracing badges are no longer required.
If you have COVID-19 symptoms or are unsure whether it's OK to come to campus, you can now call and speak with a nurse. You will then receive instructions by email. If no one is available to take your call, please leave a message with your name and phone number. You will receive a call back within 4 hours during the times at which the service is available. If in doubt, please stay home while you wait for guidance.
