This is our shot at a normal year! Get your booster.

We look forward to another semester at Snow College, and we are glad you are a part of our Badger family!  We continue to watch local and national COVID-19 trends and will continue to adjust our response as needed.  As you likely know, the Omicron variant has spiked cases in Utah, and leaders are anticipating that another variant currently found in France will be in the United States before long.  

As such, we have updated several COVID-19 procedures and protocols.  We encourage all students, faculty, and staff to help us minimize the spread and manage cases of COVID by adhering to the following:

Get fully vaccinated

This means you should have two doses of Pfizer or Moderna or one dose of Johnson and Johnson plus a booster shot.  PEHP is offering a cash incentive for those who qualify. Remember it is ultimately your responsibility to protect yourself against this virus.

Test on a regular basis

We ask all students to test as they return to school. Testing is available in Ephraim from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm on Mondays through Thursdays in the offices under Badger Stadium and from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm on Tuesdays in the SVC lobby in Richfield. 

For your information, we administered nearly 1,300 COVID tests last semester, and 85 of them were positive. As of Wednesday of this week, our COVID specialists have administered 18 tests, and four of them were positive.  

Follow the state’s updated guidance on isolation and quarantine for the general population and students

If you test positive, you need to isolate for five days from the positive test date or until symptoms are gone (whichever is longer) and then you should wear a mask for an additional five days. 

If you are exposed to COVID, there are two protocols:

  1. If you are vaccinated, you are okay to continue activities;
  2. If you are not vaccinated, wear a mask for five days and monitor symptoms. A test is encouraged on Day 5. If the test result is negative, you may continue activities; if positive, begin your five-day isolation.

Contact the COVID Care Team to report a positive test or to receive assistance

This team of caring, competent staff is still available to support students who need physical, academic, or emotional assistance when in quarantine or isolation. The  contact email is email address for this person

Complete this brief survey

It’s confidential, and having the data helps the administration make better decisions.  It will take less than three minutes from start to finish.

While, like many of you, we had hoped COVID-19 would be part of our history and not included in our first message of 2022, we acknowledge the on-going seriousness of this situation.  Thank you for your diligence and understanding as we continue to deal with this ever-changing virus.  Thank you for respecting others’ personal choice on wearing face coverings.  Thank you for making this the best place to receive the best education.

Our goal is to keep our college community healthy while attending classes in person. While there are limitations on what higher education institutions can require, we are meeting regularly with the statewide taskforce to determine best practices. Snow College has decided to closely follow the “layered prevention strategies” outlined for state K-12 schools.

Students and employees should note the following strategies strongly recommended by the Utah Department of Health. Each bullet point is linked to additional information:
