A Department of Education guidance regarding notifying the campus (or segments) as per the Clery Act is found at:

https://ifap.ed.gov/electronic-announcements/040320UPDATEDGuidanceInterruptStudyRelCOVID19

The following is the relevant provision:

Notifications Regarding an Immediate Threat to Health or Safety (§ 668.46)
The Clery Act and its implementing regulations require institutions to notify the campus community upon the confirmation of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or staff occurring on campus. The Department does not interpret the statutory language as requiring institutions to give regular, on-going updates on COVID-19 or to proactively identify positive COVID-19 cases within the campus community. The Department also does not interpret the statutory language to apply to positive COVID-19 cases among individuals who are not attending classes, working, or residing on campus or to require notifications to such individuals.

An institution may satisfy the emergency notification requirements of the Clery Act and § 668.46 as follows: (1) provide students and employees a single notification through the regular means of communicating emergency notifications informing them about COVID-19 and necessary health and safety precautions, as well as encouraging them to obtain information from health care providers, state health authorities, and the CDC’sCOVID-19 website; or (2) create a banner at the top of the institution’s homepage containing that same information, including a statement about the global pandemic and a link to the CDC’s website.

Campus Efforts: OCCC continues to improve and enhance the student, faculty and staff experience on our campus. Though classes in the fall are online, campus is open so students can access core services and support. Masks are required in shared, open areas; hand sanitizer stations are set up all over campus; floor decals are in place every six feet to remind everyone to socially distance; signage is on all exterior doors and installed across campus in signholders to educate everyone about proper mask use; disposable masks are available upon request; and cloth masks are available for sale in the bookstore (after August 17). OCCC continues to conduct regular, thorough, specialized cleaning throughout the campus, and at the FACE and Capitol Hill Centers.
