Fully restoring campus operations requires patience, careful consideration and deliberate implementation. As the situation is still fluid, some of these details may change. We will update these pages accordingly.
We are excited to welcome you to Snow for the fall semester. We have been busy planning and preparing all summer for your return, and even though this fall will be unlike previous semesters, we are ready for the energy and excitement that students bring to campus.
However, the COVID-19 pandemic could potentially change our plans if we are not careful—all of us. Many institutions have had to modify their face-to-face plans, and we want to avoid that. In fact, recently two major universities started with face-to-face classes and just one week into their semester had to switch to remote learning. We’re told the COVID outbreaks at both schools have been traced to off-campus parties with large groups of friends. Please help protect everyone as well as our ability to continue in a face-to-face scenario by doing the following:
You will receive reminders of these healthy protocols often. Please pay attention to them when you are on campus and off campus. While many of us are not particularly vulnerable, there will also be many on campus who are—including students, faculty, staff, and families at home. We do have policies to enforce these behaviors, and we really need you to do your part in keeping campus healthy and safe for our entire Snow College family. We truly want you to have an enjoyable, fulfilling, safe, and successful semester.

The CDC says those with COVID-19 report a wide range of symptoms, ranging from mild to severe. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms or combinations of symptoms may have COVID-19:
