Update: Important Coronavirus Precautions

Dear CSN Family,

We know there is growing concern locally and nationally regarding the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The health and safety of our students, faculty and staff will always be our top priority. 

While there are currently no confirmed cases reported in Nevada, the Southern Nevada Health District has announced the first presumptive positive case of COVID-19 in a Clark County resident. We will continue to keep you updated regarding recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Southern Nevada Health District moving forward. 

We do believe we must take precautions now to ensure we have appropriate protocols in place to respond to this evolving situation as needed. To that end, we have taken the following actions:

  • A website has been set up at www.csn.edu/coronavirus.  This page will direct you to important resources and college updates.
  • An incident management planning team has been established to monitor the situation, liaison with appropriate agencies and make recommendations to the CSN Policy Group already established in our emergency operations plan. 
  • Additional sanitary and cleaning supplies are being ordered to ensure they are available in public facilities and student gathering places.
  • Janitorial service rotations will be increased in some of the aforementioned areas to ensure surfaces are routinely disinfected.

If anyone has questions or concerns regarding COVID-19, please contact Carey Sedlacek in Environmental Health & Safety at 702-651-4817.

We will continue to monitor developments and provide frequent updates both through my office and the website.
