Important letter about COVID-19 for Parents and Family of Snow College Students! Read Now →

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.

Protect Yourself

How can I protect myself from COVID-19?

You can protect yourself from coronavirus the same way you protect yourself from other viruses with a few commonsense practices.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
  • Avoid shaking hands, especially with those who appear to be ill.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth as much as possible.
  • Disinfect shared surfaces.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
    • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
    • Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).

What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

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.
