As the state’s COVID numbers and Central Wyoming College’s numbers of active cases steadily decrease, administrators announced that they will welcome students, staff, and faculty back to campus for the summer and fall 2021 semesters. The CWC campus will be fully open by the fall 2021 semester.
“We are extremely excited about what the future holds for our students,” President Brad Tyndall said. “We have learned so much during the pandemic about strategies to make learning options more flexible, more dynamic, and to meet each student where they are. We have the opportunity to offer courses in a variety of modalities, augmented by new technology, faculty creativity, and the added appreciation we all have of being in a safe and healthy in-person environment.”
The college has made significant improvements to facilities, including installing a new ionization air treatment system that reduces dust, particulate matter, bacteria, and viruses. The physical plant has incorporated extensive disinfecting protocols as well as classroom and meeting setups that include physical distancing. The Covid Response Team will continue to meet regularly to review current health guidelines released by the state and determine adjustments to campus procedures.
