NDSC COVID-19 Precautions

Health and safety is our utmost priority as we work to fulfill our mission of preventing injuries and saving lives. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have implemented additional measures to help slow the spread of the virus.

We have implemented the following precautions:

  • Temperature Checks

    All staff and guests are encouraged to sanitize their hands and take their temperature immediately inside the entrance. Those with temperatures above 100.4 are asked to leave.

  • Masks Are Encouraged

    Masks are not required to be worn by staff and visitors, but are recommended as they navigate the public areas of our building when they cannot stay 6 feet apart. Students are not required to wear their masks when in the classroom unless they choose to do so.

  • Spatial Distancing & Dividers

    Class maximums will be set to allow for a minimum of six foot distancing between people. In classrooms where distancing is not possible, classroom dividers will be placed for added protection.

  • Regular Disinfecting

    NDSC facilities are cleaned regularly and classrooms are cleaned daily, using a hospital-grade disinfectant.

  • Limited Occupancy

    Limited occupancy in elevators and restrooms.

  • Social Distancing

    Social distancing is encouraged when entering/exiting classrooms or the facility.

  • No Hand Shake Policy

    Implemented a no hand-shake policy.

Guests are asked not to enter our facilities if they:

  • Feel Sick Or Have Symptoms

    If you feel sick or are experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19 such as persistent cough; fever/chills; body aches; chest pains; or difficulty breathing
