Dear CSN Family,
Over the past month, Nevada and the rest of the country have seen marked increases in COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths. It is now more important than ever that we all work together to ensure that we are following the latest state and federal protocols and guidelines, as well as making sure we do our part to help stop the spread of this disease by following the advice of health professionals.
Earlier this month, CSN imposed further restrictions and safety measures that moved all but essential operations online. Since then, Gov. Steve Sisolak has issued Emergency Directive 35, which tightens protocols in order to stop the disease from spreading. It is in effect through December 15. For us, that means we will follow these protocols through at least the end of the fall 2020 semester.
In addition to capacity limitations and the transition of the vast majority of our services to a remote environment, CSN is implementing increased requirements on face coverings that are effectively immediately. All individuals who are not activity eating or drinking must wear a face covering both indoors and outdoors, even when social distancing protocols are otherwise maintained. This includes all interior and exterior CSN spaces — regardless of social distancing or whether you are alone. Please see our Coronavirus website for full information on restrictions and closures at CSN, including hours that certain facilities and services are available.
By working together I am confident we will enter the post-pandemic world a stronger institution. Thank you all for your cooperation and support.
Stay safe and God bless.
College of Southern Nevada
