While there are currently no confirmed cases of COVID-19 on campus or surrounding communities, Snow College is working closely with the Central Utah Public Health Department to take precautions and make preparations in the event that COVID-19 is detected here. Extra sanitizing precautions are in place as our facilities team works to deep clean and disinfect every room on campus. Additionally, they are using extra-strength disinfectant cleaner daily, and several student employees are walking through buildings daily to constantly wipe down door handles, handrails, etc. We also have provided disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer for employees to use.
Students: If you or your roommate is sick, please self-isolate and contact your health care provider. Continue to practice good hygiene: wash your hands, don't touch your face, and remember to clean the surfaces you interact with regularly like your phone, doorknobs, light switches, etc. If you are worried about COVID-19 and need help managing your feelings, please reach out to our Counselling and Wellness center at 435.283.7136. We are here to help.
A COVID-19 information line is available by dialing 1.800.456.7707

You can protect yourself from coronavirus the same way you protect yourself from other viruses with a few commonsense practices.
According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), current symptoms reported for patients with COVID-19 have included mild to severe respiratory illness with fever, cough and difficulty breathing. Coronavirus symptoms and flu symptoms can be similar, and we are currently in the middle of flu season. The CDC recommends you call ahead to a healthcare professional if you develop a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as cough or difficulty breathing, and have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19 or if you live in or have recently traveled to an area with ongoing spread. Tell your healthcare professional about your recent travel or contact. Your healthcare professional will work with your state’s public health department and CDC to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19.
