Dear CSN Family,
This is another quick update on our work with the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) and with State of Nevada departments regarding recent developments with the implementation of the requirements of employee vaccinations and/or testing. Please know that we will contine to provide you with updates as information becomes available.
Progress toward meeting the State of Nevada requirements of establishing record verification and tracking of testing is in process. CSN, along with our fellow institutions, is steadfastly working to meet this requirement. CSN is working collaboratively and transparently with our employee stakeholder groups. Vaccination and/or testing verification timelines and process will be shared once finalized.
We have communicated with the State of Nevada the progress underway to meet compliance. The additional implementation timeline has been extended to August 30. Commencing on that date, employees who do not provide vaccination status to Human Resources will be required to undergo a weekly COVID-19 test, as required by the Governor’s Office. Please look for more detailed information to be forthcoming from Human Resources later this week.
As a reminder CSN has partnered with the Southern Nevada Health District to make COVID-19 testing and vaccinations available at the Charleston and North Las Vegas campuses. In the coming weeks, vaccinations and testing will also be available at the Henderson campus. In addition, vaccinations are available throughout Southern Nevada including neighborhood pharmacies and pop-up sites. Please refer to https://covid.southernnevadahealthdistrict.org/vaccine/distribution/ for a location near you to obtain or complete the vaccination as soon as possible.
Please continue to utilize Wellness@csn.edu for communication regarding cases, close contacts, testing, and any questions regarding COVID-19.
Take care and be safe.
