Dixie Tech, as part of its response to COVID-19, is:
- Continuing a program of enhanced sanitation.
- Practice distancing, and encouraging the use of masks when distancing is not possible.
- Require that faculty, staff, students, or guests with symptoms stay away from campus.
- Providing free vaccinations clinics for all students, faculty, and staff
- Hosting educational forums with local medical professionals to provide information and answer questions regarding the vaccine for our entire campus community
- Offer free testing to students and employees.
At this time, Dixie Tech is not mandating vaccines for students, faculty, and staff. We are working with our local health department and government officials to monitor and assess the COVID-19 situation in Southern Utah on a daily basis. Dixie Tech strongly encouraging vaccines and mask usage
Classes and activities are currently being offered in person, but please note that Dixie Tech is encouraging all students and staff to wear masks regardless of vaccination status. As an inclusive institution, it’s imperative that we all are understanding and respectful of one another’s personal choices concerning mask usage.
COVID-19 testing is available on campus by contacting the Director of the Healthcare Programs, Derek Hadlock (firstname.lastname@example.org). Check https://coronavirus.utah.gov/testing-locations/ to find other testing locations.
