How do I report a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19?
How do I sign up to receive the COVID-19 vaccine?
Visit the Oakland County Health Department’s COVID-19 Vaccine Hub to find a vaccination clinic or appointment near you. The State of Michigan also
has a helpful web resource that can be used to find a COVID-19 vaccination site in your area.
Do I have to be vaccinated?
No. While the COVID-19 vaccines are not mandatory, the College encourages everyone
to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Broad participation in vaccination will help
the College return to safe in-person activities.
What if I’m not comfortable taking face to face courses this semester?
Your academic success and personal safety are our top priority; however, we understand
some students prefer not to take face-to-face courses. OCC students have a number
of options including late-start courses, which you may register up to the day the
class begins, and more online options being added.
Will I be quarantined?
You will not need to quarantine from campus due to having had close contact with a
COVID-19 case. However, consistent with MDHHS guidelines, you should monitor for 10
days after exposure, get tested if you develop symptoms, and consider wearing a mask
around others during this period.
If I feel sick, but have not tested positive for COVID-19, may I come to campus?
Absolutely not. While you may not have COVID-19, we do not want anyone you may come in contact with
to become ill from any disease, including a cold or the flu. Stay home whether you
are vaccinated or not vaccinated.
What do I do if I start to feel ill while on campus?
Go home. If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, please access the OCC COVID-19 online reporting portal, seek medical attention, and consider getting tested. Quarantine periods may be assigned
by the College.
If I notify OCC that I am positive for COVID-19, will any of my personal information
be shared with others?
All personal information is kept private by OCC to the extent allowed by law. Some
personal information, such as name, date of birth, and phone number, may need to be
shared with the Health Department to confirm your health data and to facilitate contact
tracing. Personal information will not be shared with any unauthorized employee at
OCC. In addition, the College always tries not to provide non-personal information
that might allow someone to determine the identity of the COVID-19 case.
