Dear CSN Family,
Today we want to share with you some very important updates regarding the COVID-19 environment in Clark County and at CSN. On Tuesday, July 20, the Clark County Board of Commissioners met to address the increasing positivity rate of COVID-19 in our community and to discuss mitigation efforts.
Effective at 12 a.m. July 22, 2021, employees are required to wear face coverings in indoor public spaces whether they are vaccinated or non-vaccinated. The Southern Nevada Health District recommends all individuals in indoor public spaces wear a face covering; this includes our CSN locations. This requirement will be reevaluated on August 17, 2021. We are hopeful that the transmission of COVID-19 will be reduced and that positivity levels will decline by that time. Please look for further guidance from NSHE soon.
THE WEARING OF FACE COVERINGS IS REQUIRED
for all employees at CSN campuses, sites and locations while in indoor spaces if vaccinated or unvaccinated.
As this is a temporary order, we will be placing signage on all building access points to reflect the updated requirements. It is imperative that we work together and that all full-time and part-time employees wear face coverings in internal campus, site and center locations. If you are alone in a private office a face covering is not necessary.
Thank you to 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-19 environment.
CSN has partnered with the Southern Nevada Health District to make COVID-19 vaccinations and testing available. The CSN Charleston and North Las Vegas campuses are providing both COVID-19 testing and vaccinations Tuesday-Friday at this time. Henderson Campus is serving as a testing location. To register for testing and/or vaccinations at the appropriate campuses please find information at https://covid.southernnevadahealthdistrict.org/
We are continuing to monitor the changing environment and will keep the CSN community apprised of any developments. CSN continues to work in collaboration with our partners throughout southern Nevada to monitor the environment and will continue 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.
Take care and be safe.
