Below are answers to some frequently asked questions.
What is being tracked when I use the MyVCCCD app?
We selected the ReadyEducation Contact Trace product because privacy and security were at the forefront of its development. This app is used to self-assess our health and track those with symptoms or exposures. When users check in at various locations it allows us to contact them if there was a possible exposure. Other than that there is no tracking. The app also lets our Health and Human Resource professionals verify vaccination status and Covid-19 test results.
How does contact tracing work?
There are multiple components of contact tracing, all there to reduce the spread of Covid-19 and keep our college community safe. Only three medical personnel on our campus, bound by HIPAA regulations, have access to the contact tracing data. These are the elements of contact tracing.
Downloading and using the MyVCCCD app and completing the Dailing Screening Form. This allows us to know if you have been on campus, if you are reporting symptoms and/or contact.
Giving your contact number so we can easily call you and determine the risk of contact and whether quarantining is required. This step allows us to quickly and easily contact you in the event that you are exposed.
Uploading Covid-19 test results. This step can help us to determine the length, if any of your quarantine and the spread of Covid-19 in the case of exposure.
QUICKLY responding to our calls/emails so we can clear you or offer advice in the event that you are exposed or experiencing symptoms.
