Community Covid-19 Testing

AU Health has partnered with Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) to increase COVID-19 testing capacity by increasing testing days and hours of operation.

 

Starting on Wednesday, Sept. 1, a DPH-contracted lab, LTS, will assume operations at AU Health’s drive-thru location at 524 15th St. in Augusta. The testing location will be open Monday-Saturday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.  

 

LTS offers online scheduling for PCR testing. Patients will be able to schedule a COVID test exclusively through this registration website and will no longer be available through the AU Health COVID hotline. LTS will return results within 24-48 hours and deliver to the patient via text message and email, which are linked to LTS’s online patient portal. Lab results will not appear in the AU Health VIP patient portal.

 

Employee Covid-19 Testing

AU Health will continue to test employees to ensure timely turnaround time of results. Employees should call Employee Health at 706-721-3418 and choose Option 1 to schedule a test.

 

Adult and Pediatric Pre-Procedural Testing

AU Health pre-procedural testing will continue to be coordinated through the surgery schedulers and will be coordinated through the MOB lab and pediatric department, respectively.

Faculty

The University System of Georgia (USG) will remain open on September 3, 2021.  The following guidance is provided in compliance with the intent of the Governor's COVID-19 Vaccination Day for state employees.

To encourage unvaccinated University System of Georgia (USG) employees to schedule their COVID -19 vaccine appointment by December 31, 2021, and to thank those who are already vaccinated, the USG will provide employees with eight (8) hours of administrative leave. This leave is in lieu of and aligns with Governor Kemp’s Vaccination Day closing of state offices on September 3, 2021.   To make this process as convenient as possible while maintaining service to our students and campus community, USG employees may request time off by completing the Vaccine Admin Day Request Form and submitting to their supervisor for approval between September 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021.  

Two new Time Reporting Codes (TRCs) have been added to Time and Labor to record time off for the Vaccine Admin Day.  The TRCs are:

  • 00VLH:     Vaccine Admin Day - Hourly
  • 00VLM:     Vaccine Admin Day - Monthly

Once a request for Vaccine Admin Day leave is submitted by an employee, manager or time approvers will update the Timesheet with the appropriate hours (not to exceed 8 hours in total).

Attached are the USG provided FAQ's and below are additional FAQs:

  • Will the vaccine administrative leave need to be entered for exempt employees as well? Yes, for tracking and reporting purposes all leave must be documented for exempt and non-exempt employees.
  • Are student employees eligible for the leave? No.  Student employees are not eligible for the vaccine administrative leave. 
  • For clarification, employees do not need to be vaccinated to request the day, correct? Correct.  Employees do not need to be vaccinated to request this leave.  However, in alignment with the Governor’s intent for the administrative day off for state employees, USG encourages all employees to consult with their medical professional and to get vaccinated.  

Our priority is to protect the health and safety of our campus community by encouraging and supporting all of our employees to be vaccinated. If you have questions about the COVID-19 vaccine, please contact your medical professional. For more information on the COVID-19 vaccine or to find available vaccination locations, please visit https://dph.georgia.gov/covid-vaccine.

Should you have any questions, please contact Human Resources at 706-721-3770.

Yes, if teleworking is an option for the position held, telework may be considered by management.

Faculty

Employees will need to work with their direct supervisor regarding work and possible leave arrangements due to childcare issues.

Faculty

Faculty and staff are expected to notify their supervisor if they have tested positive or are suspected to have COVID-19. Employees are to immediately report such suspected and confirmed COVID-19 illness at Augusta University to: REPORTCOVID@augusta.edu;or call University HR at 706-446-4457. Supervisors must report the case if their employee is not able to do so directly. You may also call this number if you are concerned about a potential exposure and would like guidance on whether to self-isolate or quarantine.

Faculty

Please refer to state travel guidance and restrictions. According to the state guidance, all air passengers entering the United States from abroad are required to test negative for COVID-19.

Faculty

The Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine consists of a single shot, while both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines consists of two doses with 21 and 28 days between each, respectively. According to the CDC, persons should not be scheduled to receive the second dose earlier than recommended i.e. three weeks for Pfizer and one month for Moderna. However, second doses administered within a grace period of four days earlier than the recommended date for the second dose are still considered valid. Doses inadvertently administered earlier than the grace period should not be repeated.

The second dose should be administered as close to the recommended interval as possible. However, if it is not feasible to adhere to the recommended interval, the second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines may be scheduled for administration up to 6 weeks (42 days) after the first dose. There are currently limited data on efficacy of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines administered beyond this window. If the second dose is administered beyond these intervals, there is no need to restart the series.

Faculty

South Carolina does not have a residency requirement, so non-residents are eligible to receive the vaccine in the Palmetto State. This is unlike neighboring Georgia, where one must be a Georgia resident to receive the vaccine there.  https://bit.ly/3toAzui  It is advised that you receive both doses from the same vaccine provider. https://scdhec.gov/covid19/covid-19-vaccine/covid-19-vaccine-faqs 

Faculty
Even prior to COVID-19, the Division of Facilities Services has been installing CDC recommended filters in Augusta University buildings. HVAC filters are changed every 2-4 months schedule depending on location/building, system, etc.
Faculty

No. At this time the vaccine will not be mandated for Augusta University faculty, staff or students.

 Also, at this time the vaccine will not be mandated for AU Health staff.

Please note that the COVID-19 vaccine does not currently fall under the AU Health seasonal vaccination policy or vaccine recommendations for health care workers policy. AU Health reviews these policies on a routine basis and may include a COVID-19 requirement in the future. Applicable laws do allow for exemptions in some cases.

Faculty

Your body recognizes the invading germ (virus or bacteria). Proteins (antibodies) are produced which are naturally made by the immune system to fight disease. The antibodies are trained to remember the disease and how to fight it, so if you are exposed to the germ again your immune system can quickly destroy it before you become sick.

Faculty

Side effects have been known to last 1-3 days.

Faculty

In the case of the COVID-19 vaccine, it appears the immune response you receive from vaccination is better than that of the natural infection. Therefore, the vaccine is recommended for those who have already been infected with COVID-19. It would be better to wait three months after getting COVID-19 until receiving the vaccine.

Faculty

The vaccine should not be given when someone is acutely ill, but once healthy, we do recommend the vaccine three months after recovering from COVID-19.

Faculty

It typically takes a few weeks for the body to build immunity after vaccination. That means it's possible a person could be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 just before or just after vaccination and get sick. Experts also don’t yet know how long immunity lasts after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. Again, all Augusta University employees and student should follow the  protocols for exposure, even after receiving the second dose of the vaccination.

 

Faculty

The vaccine is not mandatory for employees. However, employees are advised to save a copy of any COVID-19 vaccination record that they receive, like they do for other immunization documents, in the event there is a need for it at a later date.

Faculty

"The Red Cross is following FDA blood donation eligibility guidance for those who receive a COVID-19 vaccination, and deferral times may vary depending on the type of vaccine an individual receives." Please see further details at the Red Cross website under the heading COVID-19 Vaccine and Blood Donor Eligibility Information.

Faculty

Side effects are seen in about 25-30% of individuals that take the vaccine. These include fatigue, low grade fevers, joint and muscle pains, and pain at the injection site. These generally last from 1- 3 days and resolve on their own. Rare anaphylactoid reactions have occurred in those with a severe history of allergies. No serious adverse effects have been reported otherwise.

Faculty

If a COVID-19 case is identified in your area, Environmental Services will provide additional disinfection of spaces where the individual spent time on campus prior to the onset of symptoms or their positive test. The process for requesting disinfection services varies based on that individual’s role on campus:

Faculty
  • Product selection: It is important to select a cleaning product that is effective for use against SARS-CoV-2. All products distributed by Facilities and used by EVS meet this requirement. If purchasing additional products, please choose one from the EPA List N: https://www.epa.gov/pesticide-registration/list-n-disinfectants-use-against-sars-cov-2-covid-19
  • Follow the label: When using an EPA-registered disinfectant, follow the label directions for safe, effective use. Make sure to follow the contact time, the amount of time the surface should be visibly wet in order to be effective, listed in the List N table and indicated on the label. Note that these products are for use on surfaces, NOT on humans.  Please review the EPA reference for safe and effective disinfectant use:   https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2020-04/documents/disinfectants-onepager.pdf.  
  • If you have questions: Please contact the Biological Safety Office at 706-721-2663 or BIOSAFETY@augusta.edu if you have any questions or concerns about disinfection products or procedures. 
Faculty

Faculty may not change a modality for the simple reason that most students would prefer the course to be taught online.  The course modalities are now set unless we are instructed to move all courses to online by the USG because of prevailing health reasons.   At this point, the only course modality changes that can be considered are in response to an approved faculty workplace adjustment.

Faculty
Faculty

Vending machines will be wiped down by cleaning staff multiple times per day.

Faculty
  • Establish courses in the AU Learning Management System (D2L/Brightspace). D2L is the platform for hosting course content and communicating with students. Regarding D2L usage, the expectation is that every course will have a presence in D2L and contain at a minimum the following essential elements:
    • Faculty contact information
    • Course overview information
    • Syllabus
    • Schedule
    • Assignments
    • Gradebook
Faculty

Faculty will have instructional support throughout the spring from staff in Information Technology (https://www.augusta.edu/its/training.php) and the Center for Instruction and Innovation (www.augusta.edu/innovation).

Faculty

Faculty have access to robust technology in/out of the classroom. Minimum classroom technology will include (but is not limited to):     

  • Echo360 capabilities so lectures can be streamed and recorded,
  • Dual display video (computer screen and white board display simultaneously),
  • Overhead projector and/or touchscreen technology, and
  • Laptop connection.
Faculty

When needed, faculty can communicate through D2L with students who have registered for the course. Along with the six essential elements (faculty contact information, course overview information, syllabus, schedule, assignments, and gradebook), faculty can provide more specific course guidelines and instructions.

Faculty
  • Colleges and Facilities Services are working together to identify a tiered approach for appropriate practices within individual spaces.
  • Faculty may:
    • Implement staggered lab schedules to provide continuity of instruction,
    • Offer lab classes in a repeated format to allow for smaller class size (following appropriate accreditation guidelines for distance learning), and/or
    • Work with their Dept. Chairs to determine their options.
Faculty
  • AU will allow students to continue to participate in on-site clinical/practicum/internship experiences if sponsors submit assurance of their compliance with relevant safety guidance from the CDC and state/local health authorities. An internship or clinical site will not knowingly permit a student to interact with individuals testing positive, or presumed positive, for COVID-19.
  • For experiential learning on campus (e.g., labs, undergraduate research, leadership development courses), faculty will apply guidelines for spacing and safety in classrooms consistent with typical classrooms.
  • Faculty and staff in the Interdisciplinary Simulation Center have developed protocols for all classes and simulations consistent with hospital protocols and CDC guidelines.
  • MCG and DCG are coordinating with their accrediting bodies to develop additional considerations for student clinical and simulation experiences.
Faculty
  • Faculty may use Respondus Monitor to administer exams. Consult with IT Services for support and preparation in D2L.
Faculty
  • Yes, exam schedules remain the same regardless of what occurs during the semester.
Faculty
  • Advise students to contact their healthcare provider and seek medical attention at first sign of symptoms. If they have questions, they may contact the Dean of Students. (https://www.augusta.edu/student-life/dean.php)
  • Faculty will work with affected students to make adjustments to help the students continue their program of study.
Faculty

No, Augusta University does not have a hazardous pay option for employees.
