Change in Covid Response Team Policy/Practices

The past three years have been very difficult for everyone, and we applaud each of you for your diligence in monitoring your wellness and reporting symptoms/positive cases of Covid. Thank you! 

While Covid is still a part of everyday life, the illness isn’t what it once was. Because of KCAI’s high vaccination rates and low positivity rates during the fall 2022 semester, decreased hospitalizations and deaths, and reduced risk of contracting the illness in Kansas City, we have revised the campus Covid protocols. 
Effective immediately, KCAI faculty, staff, and students will no longer need to report to the covid management team ( or potential symptoms, exposures, or positive cases of Covid. Going forward, if you have Covid related symptoms and/or test positive for Covid, follow the protocols listed below. 
Consult immediately with a medical provider and follow the directives of the medical provider. If testing positive for Covid, follow the directives of the CDC. 
Do not attend class/work and stay away from campus until cleared by a medical provider, or through CDC guidelines. 
Notify instructor(s)/supervisor in advance of an absence.

KCAI will continue to adhere to the Communicable Disease and Epidemic/Pandemic Response Plan; including, but not limited to Covid, hepatitis, influenza, meningitis, monkeypox, measles, mumps, tuberculosis, etc. To learn more, review the 22-23 Communicable Disease Guidelines. (Link)  

Please contact Mike Raunig, Director of Safety and Security, should you have any questions.


More detailed information is available in the 22-23 Communicable Disease Epidemic/Pandemic Response Plan
