Dear CSN Family,
Today, Governor Sisolak announced that effective immediately the use of face coverings in public spaces will no longer be required. Following Governor Sisolak’s directive, NSHE employees, students, and members of the public are no longer required to wear face coverings while inside NSHE buildings irrespective of the COVID-19 vaccination status, effective immediately. This includes classrooms and workspaces.
As noted in the memorandum issued by NSHE, individual NSHE institutions do not currently retain the authority to unilaterally impose more stringent face covering requirements beyond Nevada law.
While we encourage the use of face coverings on campus, we respect personal choice on the decision to use them. Please avoid stigmatizing any individual based on their personal decision to wear a mask.
We will remain diligent in our COVID-19 efforts and ask the CSN community to continue to report cases, close contacts, and pending COVID-19 test results or symptoms to Wellness@csn.edu.
The best way to protect yourself and others is to get vaccinated and boosted if you are eligible. CSN continues to work with our Southern Nevada Health District partners to offer free COVID-19 testing and vaccinations at each of our three campuses. You can schedule an appointment for testing here or vaccination here.
We recognize that this news may be difficult for some in our community. Please reach out through your leadership structures for additional support.
Stay safe and God bless.
