Coronavirus Information and Resources

 
As part of our established emergency procedures,  SLCC has a plan in place for handling infectious diseases that have potential to affect everyday life . These plans include procedures for facility management, hosting campus events, class schedule adjustments and more. We have also created a coronavirus working group that includes members of college leadership, the SLCC Department of Public Safety, the Center for Health and Counseling, and the school’s Environmental Health and Safety department. This group is working closely with the Utah Department of Health to monitor the spread of the virus and any impact it may have on our region.  If deemed necessary , the college may choose to implement protective measures, and if any of these actions are undertaken, the college will communicate this through email, social media and our emergency communications system.  If you have not yet signed up to receive email, text and phone alerts through our college emergency system,  please do so here .
 
While it’s important to note no coronavirus cases have been confirmed in Utah and that cases in the United States have been few, the Utah Department of Health recommends everyone follow common-sense precautions to protect yourself from illness. These include: 
  • Frequent, thorough handwashing with soap for at least 20 seconds. Use hand sanitizer if handwashing is not possible. 
  • Avoid touching your face, especially your eyes, nose and mouth. 
  • Avoid shaking hands with anyone who appears sick. 
  • Disinfect shared surfaces.
  • If you need to cough or sneeze, do so in your elbow or in a tissue, and be sure to throw away all used tissues and thoroughly wash your hands afterwards.
  • Stay home if you are sick or feel like you are becoming sick. Do not return to work or school until you are well. 
Again, SLCC is committed to the safety of those in our college community, and we will keep you apprised as the current situation evolves. The most up-to-date information from the college can always be found on our  SLCCSafe  webpage. More information is also available at the following links:
