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.

All students are asked to review and sign an agreement confirming they are, and will remain, in compliance with these restrictions.

We have implemented the following precautions:

  • Temperature Checks

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

  • Masks Are Required

    Masks are required to be worn by all staff and visitors as they navigate the public areas of our building. Students are not required to wear their masks when in the classroom, but are encouraged to do so. If hands-on activities take place and distancing isn’t possible, all students and instructors will be required to wear masks.

  • 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.

  • Daily Disinfecting

    NDSC facilities 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

  • Are High Risk

    If you are at a higher risk for serious complications from COVID-19

  • Have Been In Close Contact With COVID-19

    If you were informed by the ND Department of Health or any other agency, that you may have been in close contact with a person who may have been infected with COVID-19

  • Are Supposed To Be Self Isolating

    If you were informed by a health agency that you should self-isolate because of a recent close contact with a possible COVID-19 infected person

Visitors will be asked to leave if they exhibit signs of illness, and all visitors are asked to follow heightened hygiene and distancing practices including: 

  • Sanitize hands prior to entering the facility
  • Always maintain CDC recommended 6-foot social distancing guidelines
  • Avoid handshakes and all unnecessary physical contact with others
