We Are Ready

Fully restoring campus operations requires patience, careful consideration and deliberate implementation. As the situation is still fluid, some of these details may change. We will update these pages accordingly.

Spring Testing Protocol
Do you think you've Got Covid?
From the Office of the President

Face-to-face Classes

We kept our word to stay face-to-face in the fall, and we have every intention of doing the same this semester. We are able to do this because you did your part to #maskup and follow guidelines

Student Life Activities

Like you, we are eager to get back to “normal life,” and we will do that as much as possible with the current situation. Athletic events, club activities, and academic out-of-class experiences will resume with protocols in place. Check out some of the scheduled activities

Health Precautions

You’re an expert now at wearing a mask, lathering up with hand sanitizer, and physically distancing. We will keep doing those things, and we will be testing for COVID-19 on campus. The state health order requires all students be tested in the first 10 days of the semester, and then periodically throughout the semester. We’ve tried to make this as easy as possible for you.

We are ready for spring semester

Spring Semester Safety Guidelines

Ready Guideline 1

Practice Social Distancing

Stay 6 feet apart when possible and do not congregate.

Limit face-to-face interaction and campus footprint as much as possible.

Move quickly and observe social distancing in hallways.

Ready Guideline 2

Wear Face Coverings

Face coverings are required in campus facilities (Exceptions: private work areas, ADA restrictions for face coverings, etc.).*

Face coverings must cover the nose and mouth and be properly removed, cleaned, stored or disposed of, to avoid contamination of self, others or the environment.

Face Coverings

Ready Guideline 3

Practice Prevention Hygiene

Wash hands frequently and use alcohol-based hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available.

Avoid touching your face, eyes, or nose.

Cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing.

Ready Guideline 4

Limit Gatherings and Meetings

Limit number of participants per college requirements, depending on safety plan phase.

Practice social distancing during meetings and allow a remote option.

Keep meetings minimal and reserved for critical activities.

Clean and disinfect all table surfaces, chairs and computer equipment before and after each on-campus meeting.

Personal Accountability Protocol

All employees and students are expected to follow College safety guidelines.

Any person not wearing an applicable face covering when required, or abiding to social distancing requirements, may be asked to leave the facility.

*If you are unable to wear a face covering, please visit the ADA office (students) or HR (employees) for appropriate accommodations.

Stay Home When You Are Sick

The CDC says those with COVID-19 report a wide range of symptoms, ranging from mild to severe. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms or combinations of symptoms may have COVID-19:

  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing

Or at least two of these symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Repeated shaking with chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • New loss of taste or smell

COVID-19 Testing Guidelines

If you are tested for COVID-19, you may continue to work from home, if possible, while in quarantine and/or self-isolation. If you test positive for COVID-19 you are not permitted to return to campus until you fulfill the state’s self-isolation or quarantine requirement.
