The University has prepared comprehensive operations actions based on the latest directions from Governor Steve Sisolak and the Nevada System of Higher Education’s Chancellor’s Office. Assessment of the latest public health data and information remains an ongoing process for the University and the State of Nevada. Therefore, policies and procedures for University operations as well as mode of instruction may change through time. If the incidence of COVID-19 subsides, the University may move to less restrictive social distancing. However, if a severe spike in virus incidence occurs in Nevada, the University is prepared to transition to all-remote modes of instruction for a period of time, if directed.
