Skillpoint’s Infectious Disease Plan

Although the North American H1N1 flu pandemic appears to be a mild strain and its threat continues to subside, the World Health Organization (WHO) has recommended that organizations not shelve their contingency plans just yet as new flu strains tend to come in waves and the future of the virus cannot be projected with any accuracy.

A case of North American H1N1 was confirmed yesterday at a North Austin pre-k. While we do not think the virus will be a threat to our programs and normal activities, please read the following plan because of the proximity of the confirmed case to Skillpoint locations and CTTC’s campus partnership with Austin Independent School District (AISD).

In the event of AISD campus closures of our CTTC locations, CTTC will comply with AISD policy and will not hold CTTC classes in the evenings at these campuses. Instead, CTTC will try to accommodate the students of cancelled classes at the downtown location. We will add classes in the afternoons and evenings to ensure that the services you depend upon remain available to you, should any schedule changes become necessary.

We will spray our labs with disinfectant before classes. We will also hire additional custodial staff as necessary.

We ask that if you experience flu-like symptoms such as fever, muscle aches, chills, a dry cough, sneezing, vomiting or diarrhea to please stay home.

CTTC will continue to monitor the situation and will post any campus closures on our Website, www.skillpointalliance.org and our blog, www.skillpointalliance.wordpress.com.
