Dear CSN Family,
Today we want to share with you some very important updates regarding the COVID-19 environment here at CSN. On Tuesday, May 19, the Clark County Commission approved revisions to mitigation efforts consistent with the State of Nevada reopening plans and as adopted in the Clark County Mitigation and Enforcement Plan implemented effective May 1.
Effective June 1, 2021, social distancing and capacity limitations will be discontinued and CSN will return to full capacity levels. Additionally, prior approval for large gatherings of greater than 250 people will be discontinued effective June 1.
THE WEARING OF FACE COVERINGS IS REQUIRED
for all individuals, including students, employees, and members of the public who have NOT been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
For unvaccinated individuals, face coverings MUST be worn:
At all times while inside CSN buildings, regardless if others are present;
While outside on campus whenever other individuals are present, including group settings and congested areas.
Fully vaccinated is defined by the CDC as two weeks following the second dose of Pfizer or Moderna, or two weeks after a single dose vaccination, i.e. Johnson & Johnson Janssen (J&J). Face coverings/masks are optional for fully vaccinated students, employees and members of the public.
On-campus signage will communicate the face covering/mask requirements for non-vaccinated individuals. The campus signage will continue to communicate appropriate practices to mitigate transmission such as hygiene protocols, hand sanitizing, and completion of a daily health assessment.
CSN continues to work in collaboration with our partners throughout southern Nevada to monitor the environment and will continue our ability to be flexible should the need arise to revise direction. Please continue to utilize our Wellness@csn.edu for communication regarding close contacts, testing, and questions regarding COVID-19.
Thank you for those who have taken the opportunity to be vaccinated, and I again encourage all who can, to do so as soon as possible. Only through the continued efforts of vaccination will we be able to fully return to the pre-COVID environment.
