1. Continue Virtual Operations When Possible
Please utilize Zoom or Teams meetings, remote instruction, or work-from-home as much as possible. If you do not need to be on campus, please stay home.
2. Always Wear Your Face Coverings
Facial coverings are required. The university will provide facial coverings for faculty, staff, and enrolled students (NKU ID required). For more information on facial coverings, see the Facial Coverings FAQs.
3. Wash Your Hands Frequently
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
4. Clean and Sanitize
All faculty and staff will be required to clean and sanitize their workspaces. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, and keyboards. Classrooms will be cleaned on an enhanced schedule.
5. Stay at Least 6 Feet Apart
Individuals should maintain at least 6 feet of separation from others, whether inside, outside, or masked. Campus space has been reconfigured to maintain appropriate social distancing.
6. Know the Symptoms
COVID-19 symptoms include cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, a new loss of taste or smell, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, and sinus congestion. Faculty and staff showing COVID-19 symptoms should leave work immediately and seek medical evaluation by a health professional. Students showing COVID-19 symptoms should immediately isolate from others and also seek medical evaluation.
7. Monitor Your Health
All members of the university community must self-screen symptoms each time they come on campus using the Healthy@NKU app within myNKU. Students living in on-campus housing will also self-screen daily. Always call ahead before seeking in-person medical help. Faculty, staff, and students diagnosed with probable or confirmed COVID-19 will be contacted by the Northern Kentucky Health Department and given additional guidance and instructions
