Important Safety Information Update

Dear CSN Family,

As we continue our gradual, phased approach to returning to campus, I want to highlight several safety measures that are in effect for anyone visiting CSN’s campuses, sites and centers. We consider the health and safety of our faculty, staff, students and visitors our top priority, so we continue to follow guidelines from state and federal officials, as well as health and safety experts from federal, state and local public health agencies.

  • All individuals on campus are required to wear face coverings. Coverings are required both indoors and outdoors.  
  • Social distancing of six feet from others is required. Class sizes have been reduced to ensure that distancing occurs among individuals, that not greater than 50 percent of any room’s capacity is reached, as defined by the fire code, and that not greater than 50 individuals are gathered.
  • Capacity on campus elevators is limited to no more than two riders at a time.

Additional health and safety protocols are important for CSN students, faculty, staff, and community. Most importantly, if you are feeling ill you must not come to campus. Symptoms related to COVID-19 include cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing; or at least two of the following: fever, headache, chills, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, muscle aches, vomiting, nausea or diarrhea.

Additionally, please note:

  • Students who have been in contact with someone who has been ordered to quarantine or isolate are not permitted on campus until completion of the quarantine period, and must notify Wellness@csn.edu.
  • Students who have health concerns shall coordinate with appropriate medical professionals.
  • Additional guidelines and requirements may be implemented as determined by state and NSHE officials, or local agencies.
  • Students are urged to avoid non-essential travel to the greatest extent possible. 

Anyone not wearing a face covering on campus will be advised to wear one. If they refuse, they will be removed from campus.

Please know that these measures are designed with your safety in mind. As our experience with the COVID-19 virus evolves, our policies and plans will evolve with it. As always, we will keep the entire CSN family informed.

Stay safe and God bless.
