Dear NSC Community,
NSC has been informed that an individual at the NSC nursing skills lab located at 1001 Shadow Lane, Las Vegas, NV 89106 has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual was last at that location on June 25, 2020, and was confirmed as positive for COVID-19 on July 4. The individual is isolated and receiving care.
When an individual is confirmed to have COVID-19, the Southern Nevada Health District determines who they may have had close contact with and guidance is provided directly to those individuals. The Southern Nevada Health District emphasizes that those most at risk from COVID-19 include people who have had daily repeated and prolonged exposure.
The college is sending this notification out of an abundance of caution. Public health officials maintain the risk is low for people who have had brief contact with an infected individual. We ask the NSC community to continue following protocols for prevention, be aware of symptoms of COVID-19, and seek medical care when it is needed.
The COVID-19 pandemic is a rapidly evolving situation in Nevada and throughout the country, and we will continue to share information specific to NSC through official channels, including https://nsc.edu/coronavirus/ The site includes information and announcements regarding COVID-19 impacts to campus operations, and links to information about COVID-19 from the Nevada System of Higher Education, Southern Nevada Health District and the State of Nevada. NSC will communicate confirmed cases when other members of the university community may have been exposed. Unless there are unusual circumstances, such information will be posted solely at https://nsc.edu/coronavirus/ This notification complies with the requirements under the Clery Act.
