Dear Nevada State Community;
For the past several weeks, Nevada has shown an alarming rise in COVID-19 cases. On Tuesday, Governor Steve Sisolak announced “Stay at Home 2.0” to lessen the spread of COVID-19 in the state. Over the next two weeks, Nevadans are asked to stay at home as much as possible and to not participate in gatherings with people who do not live in the same household.
The Nevada State College community will be proactive and do our part by continuing to physically social distance, wearing a face covering, washing hands frequently, and avoiding social gatherings. All gatherings, meetings, and events (both on and off campus) should be limited to those that are small, truly essential, and cannot occur in a virtual format.
Remember, these are the best practices we encourage at Nevada State:
All employees are expected to fully comply with the policies, protocols, and guidelines outlined in the Return to Campus Guidelines. Additionally, we ask that you continue following protocols for prevention, be aware of symptoms of COVID-19, and seek medical care when it is needed.
The Self-Report Form, Daily Self-Assessment and many more tools are also available on the State Safe app. To download the app and access features including campus, community and crisis resources, simply search State Safe in the Apple iTunes or Google Play store.
We will continue to share information specific to Nevada State through official channels, including nsc.edu/coronavirus/. The site includes links to health resources, college operations, current announcements, and other important information.
Be State. Be Safe.
