The following is a message from Williston State College president, Dr. John Miller:
Dear Campus Community:
I want to take the opportunity to thank you all for the good work in keeping yourself and others safe during this phase of the COVID-19 pandemic. Recognizing improving conditions and the decline in positive COVID-19 cases, on February 15, 2021, WSC will move to the Level 2 Low Risk Category. WSC will remain a mandatory mask use environment. Masks are required in all common areas and classrooms and at all events sponsored by WSC. Masks, when properly worn, cover your mouth, chin, and nose.
The return of fans to WSC athletic contests is off to a good start, and I appreciate everyone’s cooperation toward this end. With our primary focus being on the safety of all involved, we allow a maximum of 300 people into WSC athletic contests, including players, game officials, students, parents, faculty/staff, season ticket holders, and general spectators from WSC. Ticket stations will be open 45 minutes before the contest starts and hometown spectators will be admitted on a first come, first admitted basis. All fans and game officials attending WSC athletic events are required to wear a mask.
Because the COVID-19 pandemic makes for very fluid situations, we will regularly review data and recommendations from the North Dakota DoH, the CDC, and the Upper Missouri District Health Unit regarding the “ebbs and flows” of the COVID-19 Virus.
As we wait for a wider distribution of the Coronavirus vaccine and continue to monitor changes in the COVID-19 virus, I encourage all of you to wear a mask at all times in public, participate in regular testing, practice social distancing, good hand hygiene, and be aware of where you are and who is around you.
Once again, thank you for your ongoing cooperation.
Williston State College
