COVID-19 updates and reminders

April 1, 2021

Dear SNC community,

We’d like to share with you the following COVID-related updates and reminders.

Masking
In light of Wednesday’s Wisconsin Supreme Court decision on the statewide mask mandate, the college is reiterating its stance on mask-wearing: The college believes masks are an effective tool in limiting the spread of COVID-19, and indoor masking remains our campus policy for all spaces except private offices or living spaces.

Vaccine expansion in Wisconsin
Beginning April 5, eligibility in Wisconsin expands to all persons age 16 and older

  • SNC strongly encourages but is not requiring the vaccine at this time.
  • Seek out a location where you can get the vaccine – the sooner the better! SNC community members are not limited to receiving the vaccine on campus. Access to community sites and information on appointment availability can be found on the WI DHS map of vaccine providers.
  • SNC will continue making its waitlist available and will offer vaccine clinics when Health Services receives shipments. The earliest possible shipment of first doses to campus will be the week of April 12.
  • People are welcome to add their names to the SNC waitlist AND pursue vaccines in the local community. If you are vaccinated in the local community, please inform Health Services so they can remove you from the list and move the next person up. Call 920-403-3266 or email health@snc.edu.
  • Please continue to be patient as the demand for vaccines still exceeds the supply in our community, as well as throughout Wisconsin and the nation.

Travel
Finally, heading into Easter weekend, we continue to remind you to

  • Take precautions while traveling: If you decide to travel, it’s critical that you be extra cautious. By traveling, you’ll be extending your circle, so attention to the three W’s (wear a mask, watch your distance and wash your hands) will be extremely important.
  • Socialize safely: Keep your circle small and remember that outside is safer than inside. As the weather allows, go for walks, head to a local park or nature preserve, or even just sit outside for a conversation.
