Campus Update 10.08

Posted: Oct 08 2020
 
The following is a message from Williston State College president, Dr. John Miller:
 
Dear Campus Community:
 
Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work through the different wrinkles created by the COVID-19 pandemic, from quarantines and remote learning to community testing.  I am grateful for all you do to keep people safe and engaged in learning through a very difficult time.  Today I have some information and reminders to share with you.
 
  1. With campus renovation essentially complete, all entrances into Stevens Hall and the Well are now open and the indoor walking track is available for use.  We remind all visitors that mask use is required on the WSC campus in common areas if you cannot maintain a six-foot social distance from others.
     
  2. Do not forget to wear a face mask and wear it properly.  Face wear should cover both the month and nose and be snug, so it does not droop and expose your face and mouth.  
     
  3. The flu season is upon us, and all faculty, staff, and students have a great opportunity to receive a flu shot on campus this fall.  The flu vaccine will be available each Friday from 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM as a drive thru (and walk thru) service in the Art Wood Building.  The flu shot program will begin on Friday October 9th and continue through Friday November 6th.  You will need a photo ID (driver’s license) and an insurance card to receive the flu shot (for age 9 and above).  With the on-going threat of the COVID-19 virus, it is especially important to get your flu shot this fall and protect yourself as much as possible.
     
  4. We will again host the community testing event on the WSC campus Monday, October 12th from 4:00 – 6:00 PM.  Next week’s testing event will be held in the Art Wood Building.  The route to drive through will be a little different from past weeks, but clearly marked.  Even if you have been previously tested, I encourage you to stop by and get tested again.
 
Staying “Teton Safe” is being aware of where you go and what you do.  The COVID-19 virus is insidious and strikes when we are off our guard, so continue to practice social distancing, wear a mask, wash your hands often, and stay away from large groups and gatherings.  We share responsibility for the well-being of each other, and each of us, by the choices we make, have a part to play in slowing the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
  
Be smart, be safe, and stay healthy!  
 
Respectfully,
 
John Miller
