As we continue to monitor the developments around coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), we want to reiterate that all faculty, staff and students should refer to our website (www.csn.edu/coronavirus) for additional information as it becomes available.
We understand this is a time of uncertainty and stress for many of you and for our students. We have received a number of inquiries from our community. We want to call your attention to a few key points and provide new information.
- Your health and the health of your loved ones is a primary concern for CSN. If you are not feeling well, contact your professor according to the details in your class syllabus. We encourage you to stay home and seek appropriate medical attention if you are not feeling well.
- Excused absences, assignments and exams will be handled according to normal procedures listed in your class syllabus.
- Students who are planning to travel overseas during the upcoming spring break are strongly encouraged to follow the latest guidelines for travel by visiting CDC’s traveler information. Please carefully weigh the risks and benefits of potential international travel or travel to states reporting confirmed cases of COVID-19. Monitor travel advisories daily and prepare for the possibility that travel restrictions and quarantine protocols in other countries and some domestic locations could change with short notice.
Please keep in mind the impact of COVID-19 is worldwide but may also affect our friends and the lives of families all around us. It’s important we support our campus and local communities regardless of their ethnicity or background. We should never stereotype or stigmatize any individual or group, and we should always treat each other with respect and empathy.
As stated in our last email, we will keep you updated through the website and via email. Should you have any questions or concerns about CSN’s precautions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Carey Sedlacek in Environmental Health & Safety at 702-651-4817.
