Current as of Saturday October 24, 2020
In this uncertain environment, we are committed to protecting the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and the wider community of Incline Village as we maintain a uniquely valuable educational experience for our students.
Many precautions have been put into place in order to ensure everybody's health and safety, including:
- COVID-19 testing and contact tracing, including use of the CampusClear app by everyone on campus.
- Social distancing and PPE requirements both indoors and out.
- A revised visitor policy.
- Altered and improved sanitation protocols, along with cleaning kits in all facilities.

The SNU Reopening Plan and The SNU Community Health Pledge
Please see the SNU Reopening Plan for the details of our policies and procedures. Read and sign the SNU Community Health Pledge. Our success depends on the cooperation and commitment of all of us to minimizing risk wherever possible. We will be carefully monitoring the situation, both on campus and in the community, so that we can adjust our response promptly as circumstances indicate. Together, we can continue our mission of providing a vibrant on-campus learning and living environment.
Don't Forget -
All students, faculty, and staff must be tested for COVID after September 30th. Students must be tested again between October 26 and 30. SNU will provide free testing for students October 9, October 12, and October 27 and 28. Testing for faculty and staff will be offered on-campus on October 1. Links to other area testing options are in the COVID-19 Resources section, or check your local health department.
Everyone who comes to campus is required to install the CampusClear app on their phone, and check in on the app every day before coming to campus. This will allow you to enter buildings on campus, and is critical for contact tracing.
If you develop symptoms or think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, isolate immediately and email firstname.lastname@example.org.

ALL Teacher Education courses will remain 100% online through the Fall 2020 semester.

Any faculty or staff member who is exhibiting symptoms of illness or thinks they may have been exposed to the coronavirus should stay home and contact their supervisor and email@example.com.
