Campus Safety Protocols

All students, faculty, and staff must follow COVID-19 safety protocols while on campus.

Vaccine Policy / Requirement 

    Please read CNM's vaccine policy/requirement, effective Aug. 4, 2021.

    CNM has expanded on-campus capacities to 50%. To help keep everyone at CNM safe, our community will be required to strictly follow the COVID-19 safety guidelines below.


    Students

    COVID-19 Symptom Checking: You are required to submit a Health Self-Assessment Checklist online before coming to campus.

    Face Coverings: Unvaccinated people must wear a mask covering their nose and mouth in all CNM locations, both inside and outside, and observe six feet of distancing from others. The only time an unvaccinated person can remove their mask is when eating or drinking, while maintaining at least six feet of distancing. Vaccinated people must wear a mask covering their nose and mouth when inside a CNM building. Vaccinated people may remove their mask indoors if alone in a classroom, office, or cubicle and there is a minimum of six feet of distance from the nearest person.

    Social Distancing: You must maintain at least six feet of distance from others at all times. Failure to maintain social distancing of six feet may result in dismissal from the learning activity. CNM bathrooms are also subject to social distancing. Please note: If you are in a program where human-to-human contact is required, you will receive specific instructions regarding safety procedures.

    Hallways: Please be mindful of arrows on floors and doors. There may be specific doors dedicated to entering, others for exiting. Read any posted signs on doors or in walkways for information about pathways and traffic flow. Do not gather in hallways or sit on floors and other surfaces.

    Sharing: Please be sure you have everything needed for class before you leave for campus. You should not be sharing books, computers, pens, paper, food, beverages, or any other physical items.

    Avoid Gathering After Class: After your class is over, please avoid mingling with other students, faculty, or staff and leave the campus promptly in order to further reduce the risk of spread.

    Travel: We strongly discourage any travel out of state. If you choose to travel out of state, be prepared to follow any state guidelines for quarantine upon return.
