Promoting Behaviors that Reduce SpreadPaul Mitchell the School Indianapolis has implemented several strategies to encourage behaviors that reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Staying Home when Appropriate
Staff and Future Professionals should stay at home if they are sick or have recently had close contact with a person with COVID-19.
Staff and Future Professionals should stay home if they have tested positive for or are showing COVID-19 symptoms.
Staff or Future Professionals who have recently had close contact with a person with COVID-19 should also stay home and monitor their health.
Students who have exhibited symptoms of COVID-19, tested positive for COVID-19 or have had close contact with someone who has COVID-19 should be tested and receive tests results indicative a negative test prior to returning to work or school. Staff or Future Professionals who have met the above criteria and have been tested will be required to provide proof of a negative test result prior to being admitted to work or school.
Protocol for the Above Scenarios:
Future Professional or staff members who have been in contact with someone who has COVID-19, who is/was exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, or themselves are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 should plan to stay home from school for at least five days. We require a test to be taken by the Future Professional or staff member no sooner than day five (after notifying the school) and if the results are negative on day five, the Future Professional or staff member may return to school or work. In order to return to work or school, the Future Professional or staff member will need to provide proof of the negative test results and the day in which the test was taken.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Requirements
Employees and Future Professionals must ensure proper face coverings and other personal protective equipment (PPE) is used, so long as such use does not jeopardize the employee or Future Professionals health or safety. Employees or Future Professionals not able to wear a mask due to health conditions must provide documentation from a licensed physician indicating the risk posed to wearing a face mask. Employees or Future Professionals are not required to wear face masks while alone in personal offices, more than six feet away from anyone else, or if doing so would pose a serious threat to their health or safety.
All persons are required to wear face masks while on the premises. If clients, suppliers or vendors refuse to wear masks the school may refuse those individuals entrance to the facility.
Employees and Future Professionals should use gloves when cleaning equipment, workspaces, and high touch areas of the school.
