The health and wellbeing of the university community remain UNLV’s most important considerations as we work to fulfill our educational mission. To mitigate health risks and the spread of COVID-19, all students, faculty, instructors, staff, and visitors must adhere to the following regarding social distancing, face coverings, and illness.
All UNLV campuses have adopted the following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines* for students, instructors, employees, and visitors.
Wash Your Hands
Frequently wash hands with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds. Use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol in absence of soap and water. Do not touch your face.
Wear Face Coverings
Governor Steve Sisolak mandated all Nevadans and visitors wear a mask or face covering in all public spaces, including outside when six feet of social distancing is not possible. UNLV requires all students, faculty, staff, and visitors to its campuses to wear face coverings when in public spaces. Face shields are not recommended and are not a substitute for cloth masks or face coverings.
Wear a cloth face covering when in public to protect other people in case you are infected with COVID-19.
Practice Social Distancing
Maintain six feet (about 2 arms’ lengths) between yourself and others. Wearing a cloth face covering is NOT a substitute for social distancing. Adhere to current public health requirements that limit the size of group gatherings. Avoid crowded spaces.
Self-monitor your health and stay home when you are sick: Prior to leaving your home or residence hall each day, take your temperature and complete the COVID-19 self-assessment on the RebelSAFE app or the CDC’s Self Checker at covid19healthbot.cdc.gov.
If you are sick and/or think you might have COVID-19: Call the Student Health Center at 702-895-3370 or your health care provider for guidance. Please follow the CDC recommendations to care for yourself and to help protect other people in your home and community.
