Dear CSN Family,
Today, the Nevada State Board of Health voted to require COVID-19 vaccinations for all Nevada college students who wish to register for Spring 2022 classes, with a few, limited exceptions. This includes CSN students.
Details on the implementation of the vaccine mandate will be forthcoming, but please know that I and everyone at CSN take this very seriously. We will work with local health authorities and NSHE and state officials to develop clear protocols and communication for implementation.
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. As you know, the numbers locally, statewide and nationally regarding COVID-19 infections have been trending in the wrong direction — and it is driven largely by infections among the unvaccinated.
I stand in solidarity with Chancellor Dr. Melody Rose and Board of Regents Chair Cathy McAdoo in thanking those who participated in today’s Board of Health meeting. I want to remind the CSN Family that 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 continue to utilize Wellness@csn.edu for communication regarding cases, close contacts, testing, and any questions regarding COVID-19.
God Bless and Be Safe.
