We Are Ready

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.

Badgers Care Person Pledge
Do you think you've Got Covid?
From the Office of the President

Welcome, Badgers!

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:

  • Wash your hands often (Wash your paws)
  • Wear your mask (Cover your muzzle)
  • Avoid large crowds – even off campus (Gather in small clans)
  • Practice social distancing (Be a True Badger who knows how to distance)
  • Seek medical attention and isolate if you have any COVID-19 symptoms (Use the COVID CARES Team)
  • Carry hand sanitizer with you and use it liberally
  • Stay home when you don’t feel well
  • Download Utah’s Healthy Together app and use it daily. Healthy Together App

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.

Face coverings must cover the nose and mouth and be properly removed, cleaned, stored or disposed of, to avoid contamination of self, others or the environment.

Cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing.

Ready Guideline 4

Limit Gatherings and Meetings

Limit number of participants per college requirements, depending on safety plan phase.

Practice social distancing during meetings and allow a remote option.

Keep meetings minimal and reserved for critical activities.

Clean and disinfect all table surfaces, chairs and computer equipment before and after each on-campus meeting.

Personal Accountability Protocol

All employees and students are expected to follow College safety guidelines.

Any person not wearing an applicable face covering when required, or abiding to social distancing requirements, may be asked to leave the facility.

*If you are unable to wear a face covering, please visit the ADA office (students) or HR (employees) for appropriate accommodations.

Stay Home When You Are Sick

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:

  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing

Or at least two of these symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Repeated shaking with chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • New loss of taste or smell

COVID-19 Testing Guidelines

If you are tested for COVID-19, you may continue to work from home, if possible, while in quarantine and/or self-isolation. If you test positive for COVID-19 you are not permitted to return to campus until you fulfill the state’s self-isolation or quarantine requirement.
