Face coverings

Stark State College continues to follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and local health departments regarding COVID-19. The CDC recommends individuals wear face masks indoors when community transmission levels in Stark and/or Summit counties are high.

In Stark State facilities, students, faculty, staff and visitors may decide whether to wear a mask – with the exception of those who test positive or are exposed to someone with COVID-19. Those individuals are required to isolate for five days, then wear a mask for five more days when on campus.

Stark State strongly recommends anyone who is not fully vaccinated, is feeling ill or is immunocompromised to use caution and consider facial coverings for their personal safety.

As always, please continue to wash your hands frequently, monitor yourself for symptoms and stay home if you are sick.

Campus safety measures

We will continue to follow health and safety guidelines from local, state and national health agencies and experts, including the Centers for Disease Control, in consultation with our state and local health departments. Based on current guidelines, the following measures are in place:

  • continued deep-cleaning and sanitizing of high-touch surfaces such as door handles, doors, counters, tables, etc. and providing hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes to all areas throughout the college
  • air filtration systems cleaning throughout all facilities
  • reminders of proper hygiene and hand washing/sanitation posted throughout the facilities and in restroom areas
