05.27.2020 - NOC’s Comeback Plan - Employee Reminder beginning June 1

Beginning Monday, June 1 

  • Staff in Enid, Stillwater and Tonkawa will conclude teleworking and return to work on campus. Supervisors will make accommodations for the vulnerable populations on a case-by-case basis through June 30. NOC Stillwater employees with compromised immune systems or who are in the vulnerable populations will conclude teleworking and return to work on campus beginning June 15, in accordance with the City of Stillwater municipal guidelines.
  • Dress attire through June 30 will continue to be “Northern Pride”. Beginning July 1, normal dress code attire listed in the handbook will resume.
  • All NOC locations will continue to be closed to the public, but can be accessed by appointment with NOC staff if necessary for enrollment, testing, tutoring and individual campus tours. 
  • All college-related events, both on-campus and off, are suspended unless otherwise approved on a case-by-case basis. 
  • All non-college events, i.e., civic club meetings, reunions, weddings, camps, luncheons/banquets, on all three campuses are suspended. 
  • Common areas and employee breakrooms will open for individual usage with social distancing guidelines. Coffee and tea in breakrooms will not be available. Water fountains and ice machines will remain turned off to minimize the risk.
  • Physical Plant staff will provide daily disinfecting for classroom spaces, common areas, and public spaces. 
  • Offices and individual employees are responsible for daily cleaning of office desks, tables, shared equipment, personal items, and space within the office environment. If you need additional cleaning supplies, please contact physical plant.

The safety of the Northern family is NOC’s highest priority. Implementing safety protocols and requirements, and conducting ourselves in responsible manners as we reintegrate into our buildings, offices, classrooms, labs and other spaces to serve our students and community will be key to the success of the plan.

  • Stay home and contact your supervisor if you have symptoms of illness and seek professional medical care if needed.
  • Employees who seek a workplace accommodation due to having a high-risk medical condition as defined by the CDC for the COVID-19 virus and Oklahoma guidelines should contact Human Resources.
  • Wear a face covering at all times, unless an employee is working in their personal single office and greater than 6-feet from other individuals. Wash or sanitize hands each time, before and after, touching face or face covering.  Any person not wearing a face covering or abiding to social distancing requirements will be asked to leave the facility.  Physical/social distancing of 6-feet, or until such time as that recommendation is changed, must be maintained by all people on NOC property.
