Dear CSN Family,
On Tuesday, March 22, 2022, the Office of the Governor issued this memorandum updating COVID-19 weekly testing for current unvaccinated state and NSHE employees that ends the testing program effective Friday, March 25, 2022. As you know, weekly COVID-19 testing has been a requirement for unvaccinated employees who had medical or religious waivers.
As the Office of the Governor has indicated and Chancellor Dr. Melody Rose notes in her memo, the discontinuation of the testing program is due to improvements in Nevada regarding COVID-19 infection rates.
We encourage our CSN family to continue to be diligent and to follow all COVID-19 health and safety protocols and best practices so we can continue to support the safety of our campuses and improvements in our COVID-19 trends. Please continue to report exposures, pending or positive COVID-19 results through our Wellness@csn.edu for case management, support and services.
Dr. Federico Zaragoza
College of Southern Nevada
