COVID-19 guidance for students

We all have part to play in keeping the Pack healthy. Each of us must take personal responsibility for things we can control: COVID-19 self-education, wearing face coverings if not vaccinated, personal hygiene (hand washing) and following University policies and procedures and self-monitoring for COVID-19 symptoms.

Face coverings

All students. Regardless of vaccination status, all students must wear masks indoors. This includes all classrooms and laboratories, all work areas inside all campus buildings as well as all residential halls and events taking place inside. Individuals are not required to wear masks if they have individual offices or if they are in their individual rooms in residential halls.

Unvaccinated students. Students who have not been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, are also still required to wear face coverings outdoors while on campus, irrespective of whether other individuals are present. For people who have not received a COVID-19 vaccine, wearing a face-covering is not a choice and remains mandatory.

COVID-19 testing

The Student Health Center is offering free daily COVID-19 testing from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday-Friday, to students, faculty and staff. Make your appointment by calling (775) 784-6598. The Student Health Center offers rapid Antigen testing, PCR testing for diagnosis of infection and antibody testing to identify past infections.

Social distancing

There are no social distancing requirements in Nevada or at the University.
