Health and Safety

Established health and safety protocols that strive to protect all members of our campus community. 



To reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community, and in accordance with CDC guidelines, state requirements, county authorities and our own public-health experts, we have implemented a number of health and safety protocols. All of these actions are part of the Bronco COVID-19 Pact, our commitment to all do our part in stopping the spread of the virus. 


All students, faculty, and staff must remember to: 


  • Wear a mask in classrooms and the Cowell Health Center. Although not required in other indoor locations, masks remain highly recommended. Students, faculty and staff who are not up to date on their COVID-19 vaccinations (boosted) are required to wear masks indoors. 
  • Refrain from coming to campus when sick or experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms until you get a negative test result.
  • Participate in required entry testing by testing twice during your first week back on campus.
  • Get tested after exposure to COVID-19 or when experiencing symptoms. 
  • Get tested weekly, via Color, if you are not up to date (boosted) with your COVID-19 vaccination.
  • Wash or sanitize hands frequently throughout the day.
  • Practice good cough and sneeze hygiene.
  • Do not eat or drink during class.
